Jersey is one of the most naturally beautiful holiday destinations in Europe. The largest of the Channel Islands sits just far enough south to enjoy a favourable climate and to boast glistening azure oceans. Yet the island is also far enough north to house plenty of luscious, rich plant-life. This stunning balance of nature is enough to remind holidaymakers of the importance of caring for the environment. Fittingly, Jersey is blessed with some exquisite green and sustainable hotels to match this emerald jewel of an island.
Efficient New Builds
Building technology is advancing all the time and the focus for most constructors today is energy efficiency. The Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel is a fine example of this, enjoying high standards when it comes to sustainability.
The Radisson Blu has won numerous accreditations for its green practices. The hotel has held a Green Tourism Award since 2011 and is rated as a Level 3 Eco Active Business. From providing dual flush toilets to engaging in a rigorous recycling initiative, the hotel is leading the pack in all matters green.
Get in Touch with Nature
With so much to see and do in Jersey, your itinerary doesn't have to be packed with activities that will harm the planet. There's so much natural beauty around the island that most holidaymakers are keen to get in touch with nature during their stay.
Far and away the easiest and most enjoyable way to do this is to hit one of Jersey's fantastic beaches. The most popular bays are in the south west of the island at St. Ouen's Bay and St. Brelade. While these stunning beaches offer plenty of facilities and are safe places to swim with kids, there are more peaceful offering to be found in the north.
No Need to Compromise
Booking into an eco-friendly hotel in Jersey doesn't mean guests have to compromise. The Monterey Hotel in St. Helier is an excellent example of how green hotels in Jersey can also pack in some luxurious facilities.
Guests at the Monterey Hotel can enjoy a wide range of facilities, from the numerous swimming pools, complete with spa facilities, to the state of the art fitness centre. The hotel has also won a silver award from Green Tourism.
