Radisson Hotel Group is continuing to secure a sustainable future for many rapidly-developing tourism destinations of Asia, by launching a series of environmentally and socially responsible initiatives at its beachfront resorts.
Supported by Radisson Hotel Group’s Responsible Business ethos, effort is being taken for preserving the environment and give back to local communities in several new Radisson Blu island destinations like Bali, the Maldives and two emerging Vietnamese beach resorts, Phu Quoc and Cam Ranh.
Radisson Blu Bali Uluwatu, which was launched in February 2018, has introduced an array of environmental activities. With plastic pollution being an environmental concern in Bali, the resort has undertaken initiatives like the use of straws made from corn-starch, plus bags, slippers and bathroom amenities from natural materials. Plastic bottles have been replaced by glass versions and recycled glassware is used in the resort’s restaurants.
Radisson Blu Resort Phu Quoc, which launched in July 2018, has taken a multi-faceted approach to sustainability. It has become the first international hotel in Vietnam to produce its own bamboo straws, and guests can visit the onsite bamboo farm and pick up knowledge about how the straws are made. The resort has also made partnerships with local farms to produce organic honey, peppercorns and other ingredients for the hotel’s restaurants and bars.
Radisson Blu Resort Maldives, which is expected to open in Q1 2020, plans to minimize its use of plastic products by using bamboo or metal straws, reusable cloth laundry bags and glass bottles throughout the resort. Radisson Blu Resort Cam Ranh, which is currently under development, will also agree to a series of responsible business solutions.
