Best Hospitality Practices 2018-02-17T16:35:31+00:00

We invest in green technology and always source products in line with our philosophy. Here are just some of the ways we keep our operations efficient and sustainable.

CLEAN & EFFICIENT

OUR SUSTAINABLE OPERATIONS

SOLAR WATER HEATING

With sunshine aplenty in Manuel Antonio, we’re putting it to good use at the resort.

We work hard to keep our carbon emissions as low as possible. One way we do that is by using solar energy generated at the hotel to heat water for our guest and staff rooms. If it happens to be cloudy, we have energy-saving auxiliary water heaters as a backup. Either way, your showers and jacuzzis will always be piping hot!

ORGANIC CLEANING PRODUCTS

Surrounded by 11 acres of nature reserve, we like to keep things… natural!

Warning! Flammable! Toxic! With labels like these on many conventional cleaning products, going 100% organic was a no-brainer for us. The fully biodegradable products we use don’t contain hazardous chemicals so they won’t adversely affect our ecosystems or us.

GREEN GARDENING

Irrigating 11-acres of lush forest takes a lot of water, but we’ve got a smart solution.

For many months of the year our rainforest becomes bone dry and needs to be watered. To ease the demand on fresh water, we put our wastewater to good use by purifying it onsite and making it completely suitable for irrigating our gardens.

FEEL-GOOD FOOD

What makes our food “feel-good”? Hint: it’s not just the delicious flavors!

We think food tastes better when it’s ethical and hasn’t been shipped from a faraway land. At Arenas del Mar, we’ll serve you tasty exotic dishes without racking up thousands of food miles. We work closely with our local suppliers to ensure that every product is organic, that every chicken is hormone-free and that every cow is grass-fed. This way, local farmers and fishermen who do things right can live sustainably while you enjoy gourmet feel-good meals on the beach.

EASY BEING GREEN TOUR

Let us show you how we’ve gone green with our complimentary back of the house tour.

The best hospitality practices on this page are a drop in the ocean of our sustainability initiatives. We invite you to join us at the resort and see for yourself how we keep our operations green, how we support our community, and how we conserve our flora and fauna. We’ll take you around even the hidden areas, giving you a real insight into sustainable hospitality.

SUSTAINABILITY IN ACTION

“The Sustainability Manager gave us an amazing tour of the property and insights into what “sustainability” means for Arenas del Mar – everything from a pool-cleaning system that doesn’t use chlorine so birds can drink from it, to addressing the needs of local communities. Most of this had been invisible to us prior to taking the tour, and it made us appreciate our stay much more!”
