We furthermore like to highlight that we truly felt that sustainability is lived throughout the property and that the Green Key ecolabel is not just a tick-box exercise. Especially the idea with the herb garden, in the middle of the West Bay area, has been a highlight.’’

“We are delighted to receive the Green Key Qatar certification for the first time. It is a significant achievement and a testament to our commitment to sustainable tourism. I congratulate and thank the entire Green Key Committee for their dedication and support to achieve Green Key Ecolabel for the first year.
