Five Movenpick hotels in Jordan receive Green Globe Certification once again

The luxury hotel group ensures that it provides five-star hospitality while sustaining Jordan's unique tourist attractions, and lowering its environmental footprint.

Five Movenpick hotels in Jordan receive Green Globe Certification once again

Movenpick Hotels & Resorts has managed to sustain its environmental-friendly status in Jordan after all five of its hotels received Green Globe certification once again.

The hotel group successfully manages to combine five-star hospitality with sustainable practices that help protect the unique and treasured tourist attractions in Jordan and its luxury hotels in the country have been Green Globe certified since 2011.

Located in Aqaba on the Red Sea, Mövenpick Resort & Residences Aqaba and Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba both offer eco-friendly holidays in Jordan with scuba diving opportunities on protected coral reefs, along with upscale culinary and cultural facilities and activities.

Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba has invested in solar panels and it has a unique ‘backwash process’, which re-uses the water of the resort’s swimming pools and Jacuzzis for irrigation. The property has also received Blue Flag certification, HACCP and ISO 22000 certification.

Mövenpick Resort & Spa Dead Sea is located on the lowest point on the Earth, 402 metre below sea level and it was the first hotel in the Middle East to use solar-powered club cars to transport guests within the resort. The property was also named as the ‘Best Sustainable Hotel for Jordan’ by The Arabian Hotel Awards in 2012.

Mövenpick Resort Petra and Mövenpick Nabatean Castle Hotel are located next to the ruins of the ancient city of Petra. Both luxury resorts have installed water saving devices in all showers in guest rooms, as well as in the basins and toilets of restrooms in public areas. The devices decrease the water pressure, which reduces the amount of water used by holidaymakers.

“It is a source of a great pleasure for us at Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts to announce that during 2014, Jordan hotels have managed to reduce their utilities consumption,” stated Peter Hoesli, the General Manager of Mövenpick Resort & Spa Dead Sea and Regional Manager- MH&R of Jordan.

He added:

"Consumption of water at our hotels in Jordan declined by 17 per cent from last year, thus saving around 27,882.45 cubic meters until the end of the first half of this year. Electricity consumption dropped by 2.10 percent from last year, saving 266,345.19 kWh until the end of June. Even fuel consumption went down by 15.18 percent from last year, saving around 1,222,061.86 kWh until the second quarter of this year.

Green Globe is an internationally-recognised environmental certification that is awarded to businesses within the travel and tourism sector that operate green practices and are proven to be conserving energy, water and other resources.

As well as its five hotels in Jordan, Movenpick Hotels & Resorts - a luxury hotel management company - has 78 properties in more than 24 countries across the world.
