Hello My Name in Angel.
Welcome to PALOMA! How can we help you?
Paloma Hotels is an environmentally friendly company which values its staff, works for the protection of natural life, supports the local people,
aims to create job opportunities for students and contributes to sustainable tourism.
We reduce the use of natural resources with the measures which we take within the scope of sustainable tourism principles, and we carry on our works to minimize, and eliminate the soil, water and air damages. We care about local products and support local suppliers. We carry on works for the employment and education of local people.
With the environmental management system we have established within our hotel, it is aimed to bring under control the amount of water, electricity, energy, chemical and solid waste and minimize the damage to the environment and natural resources without compromising the comfort of our guests.
With the measures we have taken in the light of sustainable tourism principles, the use of natural resources has been reduced and practices have been updated to minimize and, if possible, eliminate damage to soil, water and air.
With each passing year, a new one is added to hotels of ever-growing PALOMA Hotels group or our existing hotels are being enlarged. However, the most important detail for us to during the construction phase is the sustainability of natural life. Our projects are prepared with precision so that not a single tree in the field is destroyed.
We have contributed to the breathing of our world by planting 800 saplings in an area of 2500 square meters in İzmir Özdere Region and the number of trees planted every year is gradually increasing. We are afforesting not only to the memory forest, but also around our hotels.
We provide continuous training to our staff in line with our environmental protection goals. There are environmental brochures in their rooms to raise awareness of our guests as well as our staff. Together with our staff and guests, we clean the area with "15 Minutes for Environment" activities. In addition to the environmental activities we do in our hotels, we also participate in, together with local organizations, tree planting activities, environmental walks, beach activities and activities to raise awareness of the local people.
Being aware that packaging wastes are not waste and are recycling products, we ensure separation of waste parsing buckets and packaging wastes in the guest areas and personnel use areas. We continue our works within the scope of the zero waste project. The wastes collected here are delivered to licensed companies for recycling in return for the documents, thus ensured protecting hundreds of trees. In addition, we aim to reduce amount of packaging waste to minimize environmental pollution. In this context, we reduce the amount of packaging waste by avoiding the use of small packaged products. We deliver the packaging wastes and organic wastes we have spared to licensed companies and ensure their disposal without harming the environment.
We remind how important the environment and natural life are for sustainable life with the trainings given to our staff at every opportunity. As Paloma Hotels, our primary goals are to prevent environmental pollution and ensure the use of natural resources suitably, thus leaving a livable world for future generations. For this purpose, one of the measures taken in our hotels is to use photocell lamps and taps to save electricity and water. Care is taken to purchase energy-efficient electrical appliances.
In this context, a savings team has been created in all the hotels within our company. The purpose of the savings team is to reduce the energy used, determine savings measures and control the sustainability of these measures. For this, meetings are held at regular intervals and it is checked whether the savings measures are applied in accordance with the job description. The determined measures are transferred to our staff through meetings and trainings. We provide a high level of participation to all events and trainings and contribute to the awareness of everyone. In addition, our successful staff are provided with pine seedlings and ensured to plant the seedlings wherever they want for environmental awareness and encouragement.
We keep our efforts, by developing, to ensure the continuity of our Yeşil Yıldız, Mavi Bayrak, TUI Çevre Şampiyonu, Travelife Gold awards which are gained as a result of all the work we do and the environmental activities we participate with local organizations.
As Paloma Hotels, one of our main working principle is to ensure environmental sustainability. With the precautions we take in light of sustainable tourism principles, the use of natural resources has been reduced in order to ensure environmental sustainability, and practices are developed to minimize and eliminate, if possible, damage to soil, water and air. Social sustainability is achieved by creating awareness among firstly our staff and secondly the people of the region through various activities.
Ash is the general name given to the remaining waste from burnt organic matter. Coal ash contains most important nutrients and the most important minerals as magnesium, calcium and potassium for plants. Phosphorus, which is the most important nutrient for plants, helps to create a strong root system for plant. It is also used in the improvement of soils by lowering the acidity of acidic soil. It is used for planting indoor plants in our facility.
The use of ash;
1. Ashes of the burned wood or coal during the day are collected.
2. The ashes accumulated at the end of the day are delivered to the garden chief.
3. The garden chief mixes the ashes were delivered into the soil to be used for planting.
4. Soil mixed with ash is used in areas to be planted.
Egg shell is a rich source of vitamins and minerals. Egg shell is not a litter and can be used for different purposes. Aware of this, Paloma Hotels uses egg shell, a rich source of vitamins and minerals, as fertilizer in the soil. Rich in calcium and other minerals, egg shells help strengthen our garden.
The use of egg shells;
1. The shells of the eggs used during the day are collected in a container instead of being thrown away.
2. The eggshells used daily are delivered to the garden chief at the end of the day.
3. The garden chief crushes the egg shells and turns them into small pieces.
4. Garden chief blends egg shells which were turned into small pieces with soil and fertilizer and uses them in the area to be planted.
With our environmental follow-up schedule, which is filled regularly every month, by checking amounts of the consumption of the resources used, we determine the increases and decreases. We take the necessary precautions without ignoring guest satisfaction.
As Paloma family, we continue our activities to protect and beautify the lives and living spaces of our friends who are with us in the world we live in.
The cat houses you will see in the hotel garden have been designed for the feeding and shelter of cats. Our cats are under the control of a veterinarian. Our veterinarian recommended that our cats should not be fed food other than dry food in order to prevent any parasites and diseases in our cats.

We also support the works conducted to protect that species by adopting an endangered species.
We contribute to the protection of the nests made by the swallows in our facilities by giving support to the Swallow Project with Skal International Antalya Club.
Feeding Of Wild Animals
Food residues are left in the forest on the side of our hotels in Aegean. Thus, wild animals such as pigs and foxes in the forest are fed and they are prevented from getting damaged by going down to the residential districts.
We use reusable polycarbonate cups instead of plastic cups.
During textile transfer, we use Fabric Storage Bags instead of plastic bags in laundry.
We use concentrated products for chemical supply.
We use large packaged or concentrated products instead of small packages in supply of food and beverage without ignoring satisfaction of the guests.
We do not renew the hotel guest amenities until they are completely done in line with the information we provide to the guest.
As long as our guests do not want specially in the bars, we do not add plastic straws to our presentations and alternatively we offer pasta straws.
By transforming unusable car tires into vases, we both decorate our facilities and offer our customers recycling ideas.
Growing flowers in vase from plastic bottle is also one of the recycling ideas we apply in the guest areas.
We integrate all our works into the setting of computer to reduce the use of printed documents within our facilities. Thus, we are trying to protect our existing forests by reducing paper use.
Firstly second pages of the papers in our facilities are used and then they are recycled. In addition, used papers will be sent to TEMA Foundation for recycling.
