Calabash Grenada receives Green Globe Certification

The Calabash Grenada has been rewarded for its environmental and sustainable efforts by receiving the coveted Green Globe Certification.

To reduce water, energy and waste, the luxury resort in Grenada has developed and implemented a long-term environmental management system. The property will also be investing in solar power to provide electricity for areas around the resort, including the hot water system.

The luxury Caribbean resort runs programmes that guests can get involved in, such as "Pack for a Purpose", where holidaymakers are asked to save some space in their suitcases for items to donate to the island's children's homes.

Next month, Calabash Grenada will close temporarily to undergo extensive multi-million dollar refurbishments. During the renovations, energy efficient air conditioning units will be fitted throughout, and the hotel's freezer system and water treatment facilities will be upgraded to recycle water and irrigate the tropical gardens.

Green Globe is the official global certification for sustainable tourism and its members are awarded for their energy and water-saving efforts and promotion of environmentally friendly ethics.

Calabash will close on 2nd August, 2014 until 4th October, 2014 to carry out renovations including upgrading its One Bedroom Pool Suites that feature private pools and sun decks.

Grenada is famously known as the "Island of Spice", due to its position as a leading producer of spices such as Cinnamon, cloves, ginger, mace, allspice, orange/citrus peels, wild coffee, nutmeg and organic cocoa.

During their holiday on the Caribbean island, tourists can explore the array of historic attractions such as the Grenada National Museum; Fort George and Fort Frederick; West Indies Cricket Heritage Centre; River Antoine Rum Distillery, the oldest rum distillery in the western hemisphere; and the Dougladston Estate, the oldest spice plantation on the island.

Popular natural attractions include the famous Grand Anse Beach; the island's highest peak, Mount St. Catherine; Grand Etang Nature Reserve with its turquoise crater lake; Seven Sister Waterfalls and the highest waterfall in Grenada, Mt. Carmel Waterfall; and the Underwater Sculpture Park.
