Four Seasons Langkawi Opens On-Site Water Bottling System

The Four Seasons Resort Langkawi has become the latest hotel in the region to eliminate the use of single-use plastic water bottles thanks to an on-site water bottling system.

Following a seven-step purification process, the in-house system produces high-quality drinking water that is served in glass bottles, a material that can be recycled and reused infinitely. Guests can choose between still as well as sparkling water.

The use of reusable, renewable glass bottles that can be stored on-site eliminates the need for transport and waste disposal of plastic bottles. Reducing the amount of plastic to be recycled, in turn, also reduces the amount of energy required for recycling.

David Macklin, GM of the Four Seasons Resort Langkawi, said, We are very clear that the primary aim of building the water bottling plant is to create a more sustainable environment, not to maximise profits. Nature is a constant and powerful presence at Four Seasons Resort Langkawi, from our mile-long stretch of pristine beach to the age-old mangroves next door. Every day, our surroundings remind us how vital it is to preserve these spectacular places for generations to come. This initiative is a significant step towards nurturing the long-term health of Langkawis precious ecosystems, especially the UNESCO Kilim Karst Geopark.

In the past, the resort has reduced plastic wastage in various other ways, such as offering dispensers for bathroom amenities instead of individually packed toiletries, using recyclable paper take-away containers as far as possible, and banning plastic drinking straws.
