The Emeria Collection was inspired by the rich rocky landscape of Naxos. While today the island’s tourism is its main source of income, in the past 2000 years the island’s economic activity was based mostly on mining emery, a dark granular rock that has given its name to our group of hotels. Naxos was for the longest time the main source of this rare multi-mineral rocky material. Emery boasts several industrial uses, from grounding rice and making sandpaper to enhancing asphalt mixes and offering resistant flooring solutions. The natural substance continues to play an important role in industry and can still be seen in Naxos’ mines, some of which are very active to this very day.
Get ready to be impressed by Naxos, the largest islands in the Cyclades and a true gem that combines tradition with fun and luxury.
