Hotels, especially large ones, have a huge impact on the environment but this Singaporean hotel is committed to achieving sustainability. The Marina Bay Sands is one of the most photographed and recognized hotels in Singapore. With beautiful and futuristic looks on the outside it's what the hotel is doing inside that really counts. In 2014, Eco-Business announced that it was the first Southeast Asian venue to receive the ISO 20121 certification. It’s the international standard for sustainable event management with efforts to reduce carbon emissions and ensure environmental protection. Prior to that, the hotel had also been honored with the Green Mark Gold Award. This award is given to eco-friendly buildings that display exceptional efforts in reducing energy and resource consumption, improving indoor environmental quality, reducing waste and the potential environmental impact and provide clear plans on continuous improvement.
Fairmont Banff Springs- Banff, Alberta Canada
The Castle of the Rockies is a green certified hotel. It features an indoor and outdoor pool, spa, tennis courts multiple restaurants, wine bar, lounge. Walking distance to town and a free shuttle if you don't want to walk.
I loved this hotel and the view from the back deck is outstanding. Its fantastic location is a shuttle ride away from the Banff upper hot springs and all the restaurants and night life the town of Banff has to offer.
I had one of the best cheese and charcuterie boards I have ever had at their wine bar.
Rooms are spacious and have every amenity you would expect at a Fairmont. There is an on site grocery store as well if you are heading out for an adventure and need some extra stuff. The resort is huge and really does resemble a castle. I visited in the summer months and it was quite busy. Almost all the restaurants were to capacity so make sure to book ahead of time if you are here in the high season.
