New ISO Awards Certifications for Oscar Suites & Village


It’s been a busy month here at Oscar Suites & Village hotel in Agia Marina, Chania. Early in November we waved a goodbye to our last guests and closed the doors of the hotel so all our staff could enjoy a much-needed winter break after another busy and exciting summer in Crete. But before we wound things down for the winter, we had a successful visit from TÜV Austria Hellas which resulted us being awarded three internationally recognised certificates for quality management.


Awarded Hotel in Agia Marina Platanias Chania

At Oscar Suites & Village, we firmly believe in delivering the best possible experience for our guests so you can enjoy a fabulous holiday in Agia Marina, Chania. In order for us to ensure we not only always provide the best but continue to consistently deliver the very best, we follow strict standards and protocols. That’s why we at Oscar Suites & Village hotel signed up to the ISO international standards organisation.


What are ISO Standards?

ISO International Standards are a series of over 21,000 clearly defined standards that guarantee a certain level of quality, safety and efficiency covering all different sorts of industries. ISO International Standards are controlled by the ISO organisation, which was formed back in 1946. The name is actually inspired by the Greek word ίσος (isos) meaning equal, and emphasises the fact that ISO standards are truly global, guaranteeing the same standard across 163 countries of the world. The three ISO standards we were awarded at the Oscar Suites & Village Hotel were approved by inspectors from TÜV Austria Hellas, who specialise in examining and granting a variety of certifications and awards including the ISO International Standards. The three ISO standards we were delighted to be awarded were: ISO 14001:2004 (Environmental Management Systems), ISO 9001:2008 (Quality Management System), and ISO 22000:2005 (Food Safety Management).


ISO 14001:2004 – Eco-Friendly Green Awarded Hotel in Agia Marina Chania

There are recycling bins throughout the hotel, and sensors in the windows of our studios, apartments & sea view suite to make sure that the air conditioning units can’t run with the windows open and waste electricity. We go to great lengths to train all our hotel staff and visitors to be environmentally aware, and help us do our bit for the environment. We’re lucky enough to be right by the beautiful beach of Agia Marina Platanias and surrounded by the gorgeous natural beauty of Crete, and we want to keep it that way!
