Too many resorts throughout the Caribbean (and world by extension) pay little attention in order to minimize its impact on the environment.
Well, if having a Newspaper recycling program or placing recycle bins in guest rooms and hotel lobby qualifies them as a green hotel.
Well, I guess every little bit counts.
But for Eco-resorts like Rosalie Bay Resort in Dominica, these half-measure methods seem merely a punchline to attract more visitors.
So how is serious is Rosalie Bay Resort is about Saving the Environment?
- 70% of the Energy use at the resort is generated from solar panels and a 225 kW wind turbine, which is the first wind turbine on Dominica and the largest in the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean.
- the Owners pioneered the first sea turtle protection effort at Rosalie Bay, Dominica
- Guests can enjoy the fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables grown in the organic garden.
- From LED lights to chairs made from recycled materials to sustainably-produced cotton towels and UV-filtered natural spring water…it’s apparent that Rosalie Bay puts the environment first.
