Sea-U Guest House has grown from a 5-room guest house to a small boutique style hotel with 10 rooms. It has made tremendous progress over the years, and in turn, has witnessed savings in terms of energy consumption and the diversion of waste from the landfill to local recycling depots.
Sea-U Guest House is elated to announce that it has been awarded the Green Globe certification for the sixth time in a row, which means, it successfully maintained its Gold Level.
Whether it be implementation of energy-saving lighting throughout the hotel, recycling area, beach clean-up volunteering, or the use of environmentally-friendly products within the housekeeping department, laundry, and even guest essentials, Sea-U strides to protect the very resource it uses to immerse guests in the “Bathsheba experience.”
Owner Uschi Wetzels said, “Sea-U has embraced the Green Globe program since 2011, we plan to continue taking leaps in making positive contributions to people of our island and the planet we call home.”
In a newly-reconstructed recycling area, the use of natural bamboo as the main material for construction promotes the use of sustainable resources.
Manager Tiffany Niles said: “Living on a small beautiful island is a dream, I am happy to be working for an establishment that cares about protecting our habitat. I wish more companies would follow in a green path.”
