UI Hotels ban single-use plastic
UI Hotels have announced a bold step of stopping the use of single-use plastic in their entire operation.
Moosa Nasih, the Managing Director of UI Hotels, said single-use plastic bottles, straws, bags and other items are now banned from its hotel and restaurants. Solar panels are also being installed to run the hotel using clean energy, he added.
“We’ve been planning for this for quite some time now. Being an environment-friendly operation is one of our major goals,” Nasid said.
UI Hotels have also established a water purification system to provide safe and clean drinking water to their guests. Reusable glass bottles are used.
Located in the satellite town of Hulhumale, UI Hotels are about 10 minutes’ drive from the main Velana International Airport.
All rooms are fully furnished with LCD TV and satellite TV (+200 channels). The AC rooms are equipped with a minibar and a telephone from which you can contact to the reception at any time. Each room has a view overlooking the beachside and the greenery of Hulhumale.
Each floor has a wide balcony and a terrace at the top floor with panoramic ocean view and sweeping views of the city. Free WiFi is provided, whilst guests can also enjoy in-house games (chess, cards etc.).
