A green hotel in Singapore - Siloso Beach Resort in Sentosa

Interesting to see that you can be a high-end, profitable, classy and also green hotel ...


The Siloso Beach Resort of Sentosa Island (the resort of Singapore) has quite a number of unique features:


- the resort was built in a former jungle area - but 600 trees were preserved at the time of construction


- only spring water is used for the pool -it is even leading to a pond with fishes - certinaly a good water then !

- the hot water coming out of the a/c system is used for the showers in the guests bathrooms

- there is grass planted on the roof of the 2nd and 3 rd floor of the main building - that's clearly refreshing the rooms and induces less air/com.


- and finally , they are using old wooden train rails for their terrasses !
