HCMC landmark receives certification after five years of continual assessment.
Caravelle Saigon recently became the first property in Vietnam to receive an EarthCheck Gold Certificate 2015 and is also the only one to have the opportunity to maintain the prestigious achievement for the next five years.
EarthCheck is the world’s leading certifier of sustainable travel and tourism businesses with an internationally-recognized standards, benchmarking, and certification program. Since 1987 it has helped businesses, communities, and governments deliver clean, safe, prosperous and healthy destinations for travelers to visit, live, work, and play. The “EarthCheck Gold” designation is only conferred after five years of continual assessment by independent auditing parties adhering to EarthCheck Company Standards.
The certification makes Caravelle Saigon a leader in the unique worldwide group of sustainable tourism operators. It is also another noteworthy milestone for the hotel after many years of outstanding effort, such as saving and recycling resources as well as CSR projects calling public attention to keeping a clean and green living space.
Caravelle Saigon has been at the center of Ho Chi Minh City society since it was opened in 1959. It has 335 superbly-appointed rooms, suites, exclusive Signature Floors, a Signature Lounge, non-smoking floors, and specially-equipped rooms for the disabled. Amenities include an IDD telephone, satellite TV, a DVD player, a fax machine, a mini-bar, tea and coffee facilities, an espresso machine, and an in-room safe.
