Tips for resorts, hotels and restaurants
Globally, tourism is one of the growing industries with Seychelles being recognised worldwide for its areas of outstanding beauty. Many of these areas are along the coast, and since most tourists come to our shores for the scenery and a new experience, it makes sense for the tourism sector to look after the natural environment.
S4S aims to inform and encourage tourism operators in Seychelles to become more environmentally responsible. We provide straight forward advice that should not require expensive investment in technology but rather give practical tips that can be implemented according to your own needs and budget.
While it makes ecological sense to adopt environmentally responsible practices, allowing your clients to fully appreciate the natural beauty of your pristine location, it is also makes financial sense. “Going green” no longer requires large investments in expensive technology with unclear, far-off benefits. Small changes, such as encouraging clients to conserve water can save you thousands of rupees in utility bills and the benefits are perceived immediately.
The following recommendation have been adapted from “Going Green: an environmental toolkit for the tourism sector in the Philippine coastal areas”. Additional tips are also available under our Tips for businesses.
