Our Green Pledges

To demonstrate our commitment to sustainable tourism practices we signed up with the Earthcheck certification program for 3rd party transparent reporting of our environmental and social performance and were the first luxury hotel in Europe to achieve Gold Certification. We further hold Green Tourism Silver Certification and is a founder member of the Considerate Hoteliers Association. We believe in sustainable food sourcing and signed the Sustainable Fish City Pledge and we operate a zero waste to landfill waste management program.
