Coming soon to Abu Dhabi
JUMEIRAH SAADIYAT ISLAND
The hotel may seem like any other luxury resort but there will be no plastic allowed here. Instead, Jumeirah At Saadiyat Island Resort, opening in November this year, will be offering reusable plastic bottles at check-in for all guests and have refillable water stations located around the hotel. The idea is to prevent plastic harming Saadiyat Beach’s native flora and fauna and endangered local residents, the hawksbill turtles. The resort will also have an outright ban on plastic straws, and is aiming to reduce paper wastage (plans include silicone coasters instead of paper ones) and will also use solar power.
