Société du Palais de la Méditerranée, situated on the world renowned Côte d’Azur, is a remarkable blend of local heritage and modern style. After investing in the preservation of the historic 1930s Art Deco façade, the hotel constructed a sophisticated facility with advanced energy-saving systems.
Palais de la Méditerranée General Manager, Christophe Aldunate, said: “We are pleased to regain Green Globe Certification. It proves that we are continuing and even improving the high standards of our services, while maintaining a process of social and environmental responsibility.
“It is an important recognition of our efforts, and it is motivation and encouragement for our staff. It makes us want to share our practices and to attract decision-makers in the hotel industry by showing that our business, including the luxury area, is compatible with a sustainable development approach. I am also happy to report that the Société du Palais de la Méditerranée was the first 5-star hotel in France, with our sister Property Hotel Martinez, to be Green Globe certified.”
Green Globe Certification CEO Guido Bauer said: “The efforts of the management and staff of Société du Palais de la Méditerranée have diligently maintained a high standard of sustainable operation and management. Beyond their certification by Green Globe, the hotel has recently been chosen as the general public’s favorite hotel in the Responsible Tourism Awards by Voyages-SNCF.
