I am absolutely impressed by the sustainability efforts. The garden-in-a-hotel concept not only encompasses the aesthetics part of things, this hotel is well poised for being eco friendly. The hotel installed solar panels, serve greens from their urban farm for the farm-to-table dishes in the restaurants & was recently awarded the Silver Award in the ‘Reducing Plastic Waste in the Environment’ category at the World Responsible Tourism Awards 2021 ceremony held during WTM London.
