Manama, Bahrain, 29 January 2015 – As its environmental footprint gets ever lighter, Mövenpick Hotel Bahrain pulled its weight instead at The International Hotel Awards 2014, where it has won the five-star award as ‘Best Sustainable Hotel’ in two categories – for both Bahrain and the Arabia region.
The International Hotel Awards committee and judging panel, chaired by Sir David Michels, describes the winners of these awards as those who have proven they are the best nationally or internationally amongst their peers.
“Throughout the year, our colleagues evaluate hundreds of decisions to see if there are more sustainable alternatives to be used as part of co-existing in an environment with natural resources,” said General Manager Daniel Kaan. “The selection, investments and auditing of these projects are often challenging, but it is rewarding to see the results with awards like this and of course, the positive effects of our sustainable practices.”
Mövenpick Hotel Bahrain is the first Green Globe certified five-star hotel in Bahrain, which helped in paving the path to winning these awards. The hotel follows pre-established core criteria and guidelines for sustainability that have been adapted regionally.
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is a great advocate of green practices. The upscale hospitality company looks forward to continuing its sustainable efforts in protecting the environment and scaling down carbon footprints.
“With many five-star hotels offering an exemplary service on a 24-hour-a-day basis, we feel honoured to be able to highlight those that are making an art of the process. They really deserve recognition for all the effort they put into their business as well as their overall presentation and innovation,” added Stuart Shield, President of The International Hotel Awards.
