Our sustainable approach
By moving from buffet to a-la-carte model, we are able to minimize food waste, increase meal quality and adhere to our sustainability approach 🍃

Powered by solar panels, our indoor pool providing a sustainable swimming experience.
Our effort in reducing waste
We prioritize sourcing our ingredients locally and offering sustainable products made from vegetables. We aim to have a majority of our food and drink homemade to minimize food waste & assure quality. Moreover, we focus on incorporating reusable dishes, silverware and glasses and reducing single use items to further reduce waste.
We partner with Glassia, which produces 100% recyclable & zero-waste refillable glass bottles as our complimentary in-room water. Our team is trained to manage and return bottles for refilling and we are excited to be involved in a fully circular, zero-plastic waste solution!
We are currently using a diversity of eco-friendly takeaway, which are all sourced locally from local suppliers. We are constantly looking for new biodegradable solutions for our hotel and our restaurant and we are committed to keep improving in this aspect.
