Congratulations to PARKROYAL on Pickering for being crowned as Asia’s Leading Green Hotel for Fifth Year Running
The World Travel Awards recognises the eco-friendly hotel’s world-class sustainability efforts and design.
The eco-chic hotel located in the heart of Chinatown, PARKROYAL on Pickering has been recognised as Asia’s Leading Green Hotel for the fifth consecutive year at the World Travel Awards Asia & Oceania Gala Ceremony, held in Vietnam.
Critically acclaimed for its hotel-in-a-garden concept, PARKROYAL on Pickering is at the forefront of sustainability initiatives for the hospitality sector in Singapore and across the world. Earlier this year, the environmentally-friendly hotel further contributed to global sustainability by introducing its ‘No Meat, No Problem’ plant- based a-la-carte menu to encourage meat lovers to turn to healthy veggie alternatives in a bid to reduce their carbon footprint.
This is the fifth year running that PARKROYAL on Pickering has been recognised by the ‘Oscars’ of the travel industry as Asia’s Leading Green Hotel, highlighting the hotel’s successful integration of its green innovations into the overall guest experience.
Following this coup, PARKROYAL on Pickering will be hoping to once again reclaim the title of ‘World’s Leading Green City Hotel’ after its inaugural win last year. The World Travel Awards Grand Final Gala Ceremony will take place later this year in Oman.
Celebrating its 26th anniversary this year, the World Travel Awards has long been recognised globally as the hallmark of quality in the travel, tourism and hospitality industry. Voted by travel and tourism professionals across the globe, winners are often seen as the industry standard in their respective fields to which all others aspire.
Mr. Lee Kin Seng, Director of Marketing Communications, said:
“We are delighted to win this impressive award for the fifth consecutive year. The continued success at the World Travel Awards is a testament to our green credentials, which we are always looking to build on as a cornerstone to our hotel offering.”
