It is with great pleasure and a true honor to officially announce Hotel Carrubba Tivat as the first Green Key awarded hotel in Montenegro!
Complying with the Green Key criteria for what is a traditional stone building dated from the 19th century could have been a challenge but the hotel’s amazing team in charge of researching and implementing the programme proved the assumption wrong.
The entire staff put their minds, hearts, and souls into finding ways of improving the hotel’s impact on the environment.
The work includes turning the water valves down and saving on consumption, using old sheets for rags, making compost for the garden from coffee grains, heating water with solar panels, and using low power consuming bulbs for lighting wherever possible!
At the reception, the eco-friendly spirit of the hotel has its essence. Head of Reception will offer wonderful bike rides along the coast and show hiking trails starting directly from the hotel. Green Key information will be passed on if questions arise and community events will be offered when they occur.
In the Kitchen, the chef prioritizes seasonal local products for the menu and these can always be savored with Montenegro’s best wines.
The simple common sense was used very effectively on many occasions and this combined with some real practical solutions gave the momentum so the hotel could achieve their goals and ultimately and deservedly receive the Green Key Status and Award.
All is there, the staff and the location, the understanding of global issues and the enthusiasm, the prestige and the caring. We are proud to have Hotel Carrubba, Tivat as new member of Green Key!
