our approach places safety first

At Carpe Diem Santorini, our utmost priority is the safety and well-being of our guests and team members.

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have been working hard with a team of technology experts, doctors, and independent consultants, to adjust our services and operations to the needs of social distancing.

Our rigorous Health & Safety protocols are accredited with the Health First certification, based on the guidelines of the Greek government, the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
