No straws? The environment matters at Atmosphere

At Atmosphere, one of the cornerstones of our business is to be as environmentally friendly as we can. We are committed to reducing the negative environmental impacts that inevitably result from running a resort. We have set in place a number of policies to ensure that the use of plastic or other harmful or non-recyclable materials is minimized and we recycle as much as possible. We also hope for our guests’ active participation in preserving the environment.

What you can do

  • Minimize hot water consumption – it is warm here and hot water isn’t really that important!
  • Leave room towels on the floor if you want them changed
  •  Only change the beach towels for use around the pool and beach when necessary
  • Shower before entering the pool to minimize our need for chemicals
  • Use Air Conditioning only when necessary, and try to limit your temperature to no lower 24 degrees Celsius. Colder than that is bad for your respiratory system anyway!
  • Turn off the main switch upon leaving the room, which leaves only the refrigerator on
  • Use the provided shampoo, shower gel and lotion carefully
  • Buy our recycled products in the Boutique
  • Join Yoga at Atmosphere – an activity that leaves no carbon dioxide footprint
