The Kempinski Seychelles Resort has been granted the Luxury Travel Guide’s Eco-Friendly Hotel Award for Seychelles.

“The Luxury Travel Guide Awards represent the pinnacle of hospitality achievement, championing the best in their respective fields. Therefore, to come out on top is truly an achievement we are proud of,” said the general manager of the hotel, Masami Egami.

The award, which recognises the resort’s efforts to adopt sustainable practices, was announced late last month.

Kempinski Seychelles Resort has adopted some sustainable practice including having its own on-site water-treatment plant to recycle water, which is used for landscaping purposes.

In 2017, the hotel invested in a number of green technologies for water and energy conservation.

The resort’s Plant-a-Tree Programme is another initiative introduced to off-set some of its operational carbon emissions while aiming to restore natural habitats, protect indigenous wildlife and to educate guests about Seychelles’ biodiversity. Guests staying at the resort are also encouraged to adopt sustainable practices while staying on the island.

It is worth reminding that in 2017 the hotel was awarded its 3rd consecutive Seychelles Sustainable Tourism Label and achieved Bronze Benchmark status through Earth Check, the world’s leading environmental management and professional services group for the travel and tourism industry.
