Rosewood Tucker's Point in Bermuda receives 2014 Green Globe Recertification
Rosewood Tucker's Point in Bermuda has received the coveted Green Globe Certification once again. The property is the only one in the Rosewood Hotels and Resorts portfolio and the only hotel in Bermuda to be awarded the certificate and some of its initiatives include a $600,000 wastewater treatment plant, $100,000 solar hot water plant and solar cars on property.
The Green Globe Certificate has been awarded to Rosewood Tucker's Point once again for its environmental and sustainable efforts.
The luxury hotel in Bermuda was first awarded the prestigious certification in 2012 and it is the first property on the Caribbean island and the only hotel in the Rosewood Hotels and Resorts collection to be awarded.
Duncan Graham, the Managing Director for Rosewood Tucker's Point, explained:
"We are so honoured and proud to have been awarded the Green Globe re-certification. The Facilities Management Team, spearheaded by Kevin Lanthier, has been extremely diligent to once again achieve this impressive award and I would like to thank them for all of their efforts in order to meet the rigorous assessment."
In order to receive the certification, hotels must undergo a strict on-site audit to ensure that their sustainability and environmental efforts have been inspected.
The green initiatives implemented at Rosewood Tucker's Point include a $600,000 wastewater treatment plant, $100,000 solar hot water plant, $400,000 Sea Water Reverse Osmosis Plant, $100,000 Thermal Solar Hot Water System, and the introduction of solar cars at the hotel.
Water conservation is one of the luxury beachfront resort's main priorities and it has a wastewater treatment plant in place and a seawater reverse osmosis system that allows the property to produce its own water, treat all used water, and reuse it on site. The rainwater collection and storage systems collect up to 2.5 million gallons of rainwater and this is used across the 24-acre resort, from guest rooms and golf villas, to the Golf Clubhouse and corporate offices. All discharged water goes to the treatment plant where it is then diverted to a two-million-gallon pond and it is used to water the resort's golf course.
K. Denaye Hinds, the Director of Sustainability for OBM International and the Green Globe Auditor for the Bermuda resort, commented:
"A luxury brand meets responsible stewardship with the sustainability practices at Rosewood Tucker's Point. A renewed sense of place, the resort's focus on safeguarding the island's resources is evident through water conservation, onsite treatment and reuse practices. Continuing to improve year upon year, Rosewood Tucker's Point has a set framework to ensure further sustainability success for years to come."
The 88-room luxury eco-friendly hotel has an array of upscale facilities including gourmet restaurants, a fitness centre, a diving centre, swimming pools, an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, a croquet lawn, a lavish 12,000-square-metre spa, and access to a pristine pink sand beach.
