Punta Cana's Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort awarded Green Globe Certification

A luxury Punta Cana resort has been awarded the coveted Green Globe certification after years of meeting international high standards and dedication to conservation, corporate social responsibility, and protecting the environment.

The Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort in the Dominican Republic is located on one of the world's top ten beaches, which is protected by a coral reef, and it is a leading resort for luxury holidays to Punta Cana.

As well as implementing green practices in waste management, energy saving and biodegradable products, sustainable design and construction, and regular staff training to improve ecological awareness, the adults-only all inclusive resort is closely involved with the community. The Dominican Republic hotel regularly hosts seminars and educates local school children on environmental issues, as well as organising beach clean-up days, and supporting relief programmes.

"We are very proud about our achievement. This prestigious award represents a milestone for our resort, and we will do our best to keep improving our sustainability efforts.

"Ethical and environmentally-friendly practices are integrated into the core values of our resort, recognising that this will sustain our business for the present and the future. It is very important to preserve this beautiful part of the world, and be able to offer an eco-friendly vacation to our guests."

Stated Javier Cordero, the Director at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort.

The CEO of Green Globe, Guido Bauer spoke at the official ceremony last week, saying:

"Going ‘Green' has already resulted in significant savings of energy and natural resources at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort.

"Over the period of one year, water consumption was reduced by 8.2%, which equals 52 Olympic swimming pools, and CO2 emissions were cut down by 11,000 tons – equivalent to five round trip flights from Dubai to London."

Situated on the eastern coast of the island nation just 15 kilometres from Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ), Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort is one of the most luxurious hotels in the region with a variety of accommodation including Master Front Ocean View Suites, Superior Front Ocean View Club rooms and Superior rooms.

In the Dominican Republic holidays guests can enjoy seven tennis courts, four multi-sports courts, a full size football pitch and an 18-hole mini golf course designed by the renowned P. B. Dye.

Tourists planning to visit the Dominican Republic this winter will be able to relax amid tranquil surroundings on the soft white sand while admiring views of the sparkling turquoise ocean.
