We are passionate about our environment and we operate with a strict environmental sustainability policy in place.

  • Rooms are fitted with energy saving key-tags that switch off lighting on leaving the rooms, and 99% of all lighting is based on 'energy efficient globes of no more than 15W.


  • Our air-conditioners use 'inverter technology' which delivers 5 star energy consumption.
