Four Seasons Resort in Vietnam Opens On-Site Water Bottling Facility

The Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai in Hoi An, Vietnam has become the latest hotel in the region to open an on-site water bottling facility.

Estimated to cut an estimated 5.8 tons of plastic waste annually, the facility uses state-of-the-art filtration systems such as UV and reverse osmosis to ensure guests enjoy the freshest, cleanest water.

The Pure logo that is on the bottles features the image of a lady in ao dai, the simple yet elegant dress traditionally worn by Vietnamese women.

These branded glass bottles are placed in every room, while aluminum bottles are available for purchase in the resorts Boutique, The Heart of the Earth Spa, through in-villa private bars and during resort-arranged tours.

It is estimated that these reusable bottles will eradicate the use of more than 420,000 plastic bottles across the resort annually.

With Phase 1 now already open and proving a success, plans for Phase 2 of Project Aqua are already in place, including refilling stations through the resort and the installation of water stations in the gym area.

Bryan Ruch, The Nam Hais Resort Manager, said, With our strong global and local reputation, its essential that The Nam Hai not only sets the standard in terms of hospitality but also leads by example with sustainability initiatives. Project Aqua represents one step in a long and ongoing sustainability journey that all hotels, businesses and households need to commit to if we are to turn the tide on environmental destruction. By showing whats possible in terms of sustainable hospitality, we hope to encourage others to do what they can to be a part of the solution.
