Rosewood Mayakoba Recognized by TripAdvisor as a Greenleader Property

May 1, 2015

Rosewood Mayakoba, the ultra-luxury resort in Riviera Maya that abides by the highest of eco-standards, has been awarded a Silver GreenLeaders Badge by the world’s largest and most trusted online travel resource, TripAdvisor. In order to qualify for this prestigious recognition, a property must have a set of green practices in place. These practices include tracking energy use on a regular basis, using at least 75% energy-efficient light bulbs, having current and active towel and linen re-use plans in place, recycling at least two types of waste, staff training on green practices and guest education on green practices.

Rosewood Mayakoba prides itself on offering indulgence with awareness with efforts led by the on-property biologist Raquel Guzman. Raquel has established a wide range of green and responsible initiatives on-property that she shares with guests to maintain the resort’s environmental integrity. These programs include an eco-boat tour through the lagoons and mangroves to discover and discuss native vegetation and wildlife as well as conservation efforts for local sea turtles. After experiencing Raquel’s excursions, guests leave Rosewood Mayakoba with a renewed sense of social responsibility.
