Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels Mauritius maintains its leadership position in terms of responsible practices through its Environmental and Social Charter launched at the #WeWalkOurTalk event.
Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels carries on a tradition of excellence and warm hospitality that spans more than six decades.
Beachcomber was created in 1952 and is the pioneer and market leader of the hotel industry in Mauritius. From Park Hotel, our first property through the opening of flagship resorts such as Royal Palm in 1985 and beyond, we have become the leading hotel brand for discerning vacationers in Mauritius.
As anchored in our Mission and our Brand Promise: “to cultivate the Art of Beauty in all its dimensions”, the Management of Beachcomber Resorts and Hotels, through its Environmental and Social Policy Statement, is committed to achieving best sustainability practices and behave responsibly.
As a Mauritian company, and pioneer of the hospitality industry in Mauritius, we are aware of the gift nature has given us: to live in one of the most beautiful island of the Indian Ocean.
Our responsibility is to pass it on to future generations, whilst taking care of each member of our teams.
As an EarthCheck Silver certified collection of resorts, we are able to better measure, manage and reduce our environmental impact and monitor our social projects, and “Walk our Talk”.
Through our 52 commitments we showcase our endeavour to reduce our carbon footprint and contribute towards a cleaner, safer and more sustainable planet, with greater support to community partners, through the engagement of our Artisans and stakeholders as we encourage our Guests to participate in our sustainability projects.
On 5 July 2019, to launch its Environmental and Social Charter, Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels held the #WeWalkOurTalk event, so as to putting words into action and strengthening once again the Group’s commitment in its endeavour to reconcile development while respecting nature and communities.
The guests of honour of the celebration were the Minister of Environment & Sustainable Development, the Honorable Etienne Sinatambou, the Minister of Tourism, the Honorable Anil Gayan, as well as the Group’s Chairman, Hector Espitalier-Noël, in the presence of the management team, the Green Team members of each hotel and participants of the relay, members of the local press and representatives of local NGOs.
The event had two main highlights namely the arrival of the 350 km fund raiser relay and the celebration the EarthCheck Silver Certification Award for our 8 Resorts and Head-Office.
The goal of the relay was to bring together participants from each hotel and head office, our artisans and our guests, who all converged in relays, by foot, bike, skate or other non-motorized means, to the headquarters of Beachcomber for the official celebration.
In total, the teams travelled 350 kms. For every kilometre travelled, Beachcomber sold room nights at a very promotional price solely to its partners, in order to raise funds that were donated to 3 NGOs* working towards the protection of the environment. We raised more than 40,000 Euros during this operation.
We, at Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels, are committed towards:
Use water efficiently
Waste water plants
Choose less & greener energy
Manage Waster Responsibly
Fostering community Development
Engagement of Our Artisans
Contribution of our Guests
Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels intend to go even further in this process. One of the messages that we are sharing today is that we must realise the importance of safeguarding the great natural beauty of country and protecting the environment must be at the heart of our concerns and actions.
