Okreblue is the love child of Sasy and Angelo, two local Parians who live and breathe in Yoga. The couple have a deep love for nature, clean and nourishing food, and maintain a simple, healthy way of life.
Okreblue has been created and passionately developed for over 13 years, on land that has belonged to Angelo’s family for over a century. Far removed from the busier tourist hotspots and modern developments on some parts of the Greek Islands, Sasy and Angelo have purposefully preserved the natural landscape of the family land. Okreblue has been developed with minimal interference and a deep respect for the surrounding Elements.
Okreblue is continually evolving to this day. This is a reflection of Sasy and Angelo’s ongoing commitment to create an authentic space for Yoga and wellness and to share the Okreblue ethos with guests from around the world.
Sasy and Angelo are honoured to invite you to Okreblue to share in this simple and wholesome way of life. They hope your experience at Okreblue inspires you in your journey of wellness, Yoga, and ongoing self discovery, just as it has, and continues to do, for them.
The deep respect and care for nature and the local community underpins every aspect of the design, development, management and ongoing operation at Okreblue.
We are proud to mention just a few of the key initiatives that underpin our sustainability strategy
Okreblue’s organic gardens supply the majority of ingredients in the Carretta restaurant. The rest of the ingredients are sourced locally (on Paros, or wider-Greece) to travel and the carbon footprint.
Food is up-cycled to minimize waste in the kitchen and all scraps are composted to nourish and grow the organic gardens
We offer filtered water to all our guests and encourage minimal use of one-off plastics. Our facilities strictly adhere to recycling all plastics when necessary
Shower water is recycled and used to water the trees onsite and we use biodegradable soaps in our bathrooms and laundry.
Our recent buildings are sustainably designed and built. This includes the use of recycled local tires to create the buoyant floors in one our Yoga Shalas. The new eco-deluxe rooms are made entirely from natural materials, such as clay, mud, wood, stones and hay from the surrounding environment.
Okreblue’s commitment to continually improving its footprint is ongoing. Every year new initiatives are introduced to help Okreblue increase its sustainability and leave an increasingly positive footprint on the surrounding environment.
