We faithfully adhere to the criteria of Green Key award, a leading standard of excellence in the field of environmental responsibility and a prestigious eco-label representing compliance with the strict criteria as stipulated by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), to create for our guests a different experience on the environmental and sustainability level.

Hotel Sustainability

As one of the world’s leading luxury resort destinations, we are committed to protecting our community and the environment. Environmental sustainability is the motif we have proactively integrated into our business strategy to support us in establishing a series of specialized tools and management systems that can help to achieve our goals:

  • to reduce our environmental impact,

  • to build a safer and healthier environment for the future,

  • to reduce our energy, water and material consumption.

In order to achieve these goals, all our rooms are equipped with highly efficient conveniences like central air-conditioning system, energy-saving lighting and electricity system, and water-saving sanitary apparatus.

Our management system has fulfilled the requirements of ISO 50001 Energy Management System and ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. We participate in the Light Out activity on the first Tuesday of every month. During the hour from 20:30 to 21:30, external lighting of our properties will be reconfigured and reduced as part of the Earth Hour initiative.

Energy and Water Saving Initiatives

Guest rooms will be operated in energy-saving mode during vacancy. Electricity devices that are not in use at the time will be turned off or switched to energy-saving mode automatically. For water conservation purpose, it is recommended to take showers instead of baths.

Changing Towels and Sheets

To curtail the environmental footprint on laundry, bed linen and towels are encouraged to be reused. They will be changed every other day or upon your request.
