LUXURY 5 STAR HOSPITALITY
ABOUT this project
The 106-roomed, five-star hotel was commissioned to Verde Hotels by owner and Zanzibari-born businessman Mr Said Salim Awadh Bakhresa. The hotel is set to lead the way in the green economy sector in East Africa by being a flagship for green technology whilst further developing sustainable tourism as Zanzibar’s greenest hotel. Verde Hotels and Ecolution Consulting were able to enter the building phase of Hotel Verde Zanzibar at a timeous point in order to implement the numerous sustainable strategies required to ensure the hotel would be built and operated as sustainably as possible. The hotel is now the second of the Verde Hotels projects on which Ecolution Consulting has spearheaded the sustainability strategy, interventions and initiatives. Some
of the many sustainability interventions include renewable energy generation, 100% LED lighting, occupancy sensors, grey and black water recycling systems, waste management, demand controlled ventilation, regenerative drive elevators and an intelligent heating ventilation air conditioning (HVAC) system which is highly efficient in heat recovery for the purpose of hot water generation. The hotel is situated 4km from the burgeoning Stone Town and
a 2-minute walk to the beach. The 106 rooms offer guests 5-star ultra-luxury standard rooms and luxury suites, a spa, a gym (fully equipped with energy- generating gym equipment), 3 restaurants, conference facilities, entertainment, a gaming room and a kids’ club – all whilst ensuring a sustainable stay.
