From inception, Beach View Hotel has been committed to sustainable tourism and ensuring that the property not only maintains and adheres to all possible green practices, but evolves and leads by example to set a precedent to other properties.
Our family invests heavily into our initiatives, not because we have to, but because we love Barbados & want to do all we can to reduce our carbon footprint & keep our small island beautiful… 21 miles long, a smile wide.
Some of our Green Initiatives are as follows:
CONSERVATION OF ENERGY & WATER
Active use of alternative sources of energy on property.
PV Solar panels on all roofs which provide green electricity for all common areas, as well as generating and supplying energy back to the grid for others.
Active use of smart energy eye sensors and occupancy sensors for our air-conditioning units.
Strict monitoring and analysis of our electricity & water usage through comprehensive daily recordings & monthly reviews.
We use a combination of wastewater treatment as well as rain water collection tanks for all of our irrigation.
Recycling is practiced by our family and staff and we encourage our guests to use the recycling receptacles available in all units and around the property.
Use of biodegradable cups at the pool area for water; Use of reusable glass bottles for water in the rooms, instead of plastic bottles.
Use of biodegradable containers and cutlery for takeaway meals and refreshments from our two onsite outlets.
Beach View Hotel also actively encourages our guests to participate in our green programs by reinforcing the importance of waste management as well as implementing a linen & towel reuse program, & providing guests with canvas shopping bags for grocery shopping.
Beach View Hotel understands the role the local community plays in providing guests and visitors with an authentic Barbadian experience. As such, the hotel is dedicated to upholding its social responsibility in regard to local employment, supporting community based endeavors and promoting cultural heritage.
