The main highlight of the hotel’s participation in the festival is converting a meeting room terrace into a herb garden. A must visit for all.
Utilities make up a major expense in hotels and consistent efforts are needed to control power consumption and cost and is where a strong emphasis is given. Mr. Mukhtar Hussain – Director of Engineering, commented, “Our hotel decided to launch an environment-friendly initiative. Careful and clear-cut measures were executed to replace Neon lights in the building with LED lights. We use the latest technology and also keep abreast of the newest trends in energy saving.”
The green initiatives helped the hotel reap major benefits in the form of improved performance liability, longevity of lights, huge savings on monthly maintenance, installation and electrical costs.
