CHIC by Royalton Punta Cana Awarded Green Globe Certification for Third Year

The CHIC by Royalton Punta Cana resort has recently been awarded the prestigious Green Globe certification for the third year in a row. The adults-only hotel received an impressive compliance score of 92 percent.

The luxury resort sits on the pristine Uvero Alto Beach in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. Despite being damaged by two hurricanes in 2017, the resort has managed to bounce back quickly.

The resort has a successful sustainability management plan which includes monthly training for its managers where they compare previous metrics to improve standards. Employees are also regularly reminded of the hotel’s sustainability practices through continued training, visual aids and green Globe policies broadcast on an internal TV channel.

The hotel has introduced a room key programme where guests access rooms via an ID bracelet with a chip embedded in it, and it can also be recycled. Half used rolls of toilet paper and tissue paper are collected from guest rooms and used in public bathrooms. Old linen and soap remnants are redistributed and reused within cleaning and maintenance sections of the hotel, instead of being thrown away.

In guest rooms and public facilities there are dual flush systems and LED lighting, and in each of the five restaurant kitchens, foot pedals have been installed in every sink to conserve water. Throughout the beachfront resort, there are metered systems that identify areas where water consumption can be reduced, and a rainwater capture system has also been installed.
There is also an onsite biodegradable chemicals production plant that generates pool chlorine and detergents for laundry using salt, water and electricity.

The hotel is also part of the new internship programme in the community - the TUI Academy. The academy was launched to teach core hospitality skills to young women, enabling them to find employment. Accommodation and insurance for students are available whilst they take part in the hotel training.

The CHIC by Royalton Punta Cana has 323 spacious suites with views overlooking the azure sea or tropical gardens. In-room amenities including exclusive designer DreamBeds, rain showers, 24-hour room service, unlimited in-room long distance calling to North America and most of Europe, complimentary wireless Internet, USB recharge stations and Bluetooth speakers.

The resort’s facilities include a spa with pampering treatments and services, a modern fitness centre, swimming pools, and the exclusive Diamond Club where members will receive access to a lounge. There are several dining venues and bars that serve international gourmet culinary delights, including Moroccan and Peruvian cuisine and a classic steakhouse.
