Barcelo Bavaro Grand Resort in Punta Cana awarded Green Globe Certification for fourth year

Barcelo Bavaro Grand Resort in the Dominican Republic has been awarded the coveted Green Globe certification for the fourth year in a row. The multi-hotel complex in Punta Cana is home to Barceló Bávaro Grand Resort, Barceló Bávaro Beach, and Barceló Bávaro Palace, and its properties boast energy-saving technologies, waste management schemes, and community activities.

Barcelo Bavaro Grand Resort in Punta Cana awarded Green Globe Certification for fourth year

Barcelo Bavaro Grand Resort has been recognised for its environmental practices once again, after it was awarded Green Globe certification for the fourth year in a row. The hotel is located within the multi-resort complex in the Dominican Republic next to two other hotels: Barcelo Bávaro Beach, and Barcelo Bávaro Palace.

Over the past 12 months, Barcelo Bavaro Grand Resort has upgraded its facilities with new energy-saving technologies such as motion sensors in offices and employee bathrooms, timed lights in the hallways of the hotels, and LED lights throughout the property. The hotel is even more energy-efficient thanks to its heat extractors that are powered by wind energy, and employees are trained via environmental awareness and sustainability programmes.

“Being environmentally conscious is of key importance to us. Our resort thrives on the beauty and cleanliness of our surroundings; enhancing our green initiatives to preserve what’s most important to us remains a top priority,”

stated Giovanni Sbrogio, the Sales Director of Barcelo Bavaro Grand Resort.

As well as implementing energy-saving systems, recycling, waste management, and water-saving systems, the hotel also runs activities that benefit the local community. Each year, the complex runs a recycling competition to celebrate World Environment Day, and employees from different departments use recycled products to create new things. This year, staff from the Barcelo Bavaro Beach hotel won the contest after they built a play park for children, which was then donated to a local school.

The multi-hotel complex is located on the stunning beachfront in Punta Cana, on the easternmost point of the Dominican Republic. Together, all three hotels offer more than 2,200 guest rooms and cater for families, groups and adults. Facilities at the resort complex include an 18-hole golf course, an 18-hole miniature golf course, a casino, a sports theatre, a water park, a nightclub, a Vegas-style theatre, and a specialist cigar and rum lounge.

The resort is owned by Barcelo Hotels & Resorts which was established in Spain, in 1931. The family-owned hotel group now owns or manages more than 140 properties in 17 countries across Europe, North America, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.

Green Globe certification is one of the most coveted accolades for hotels, and to receive certification, a property must meet high environmental standards, following a strict auditing process. To maintain the certification, hotels and resorts must pass another audit the following year that monitors their compliance with the criteria set by Green Globe.
