Our Environmental Conservation Efforts

  • Bahari Beach Hotel spearheads regular cleanups along the beachfront. Staff and guests alike join hands to remove waste, ensuring a beautiful and healthy environment for everyone to enjoy.
  • The Bahari Beach Hotel backs annual KWS cleanups by providing drinks and supplies. For example, they donated soda to students at a September 2019 cleanup
  • The Bahari Beach Hotel extends a helping hand to KWS rangers by providing them with meals, water, and restrooms on-site.
  • The resort fosters a thriving ecosystem by planting native palm trees throughout the grounds. This not only enhances the natural beauty of the beachfront property, but also provides vital habitat for local wildlife.

Waste Management Practices

  • We're committed to reducing single-use plastics. We provide refillable drinking glass and stainless steel straws to reduce plastic waste. We also encourage the reuse of some plastic waste for ornamentals.
  • Bahari Beach Hotel provides designated bins meant to segregate waste. This allows for responsible recycling and disposal of each category
  • Once segregated, your waste is picked up by a licensed waste handler. This ensures it's processed and disposed of according to the highest environmental standards
  • To minimize waste from disposable toiletries, we offer shower gel in large dispensers. We also prioritize the use of biodegradable cleaning products throughout the hotel.

Sustainable Water Management Practices

  • Bahari Beach Hotel utilizes a borehole for our water needs, reducing reliance on municipal supplies. The extracted water undergoes rigorous treatment with reverse osmosis to ensure its purity.
  • Treated water is stored in both underground and overhead tanks, ensuring consistent supply. We also utilize low-flow showerheads and faucets to minimize water usage
  • Greywater from laundry and the pool is treated through soak pits, while black and grey water from guest rooms undergoes septic tank treatment before reaching soak pits. Bio-digesters further enhance this process for responsible water recycling.
  • Regular effluent sampling and testing ensure we meet all environmental regulations. We hold a valid Effluent Discharge Licence, demonstrating our commitment to responsible water management.

  • Our backup generator is a fuel-efficient 100 kVA model, used only when necessary. Additionally, we've installed energy-saving bulbs and LED lights throughout the hotel to minimize electricity consumption.
