Grenada’s first self-sustaining rooms have opened at the True Blue Bay Boutique Resort.
The 22 Cocoa Pod rooms are self-sustaining for water and electricity and are furnished using sustainable materials.
Rainwater is harvested from the roof, stored in tanks and treated before being piped into the rooms and two new freshwater swimming pools.
Solar panels are used to heat the water and to generate electricity.
The use of insulation means that the rooms stay cooler and for those who want their rooms cooler, there are energy efficient air-conditioners.
Efforts have also been made to make the interior environmentally friendly.
Wherever possible sustainable materials, including ethical wood, have been used for the furniture and furnishings.
Built in three blocks, the rooms are of the same spacious size and style of the resort’s popular True Blue Bay Style rooms.
There are 18 True Blue Style rooms and four two storey suites with at least three rooms being wheelchair accessible.
The rooms have balconies or verandas with views of the tropical gardens or the bay as well as the two new plunge pools.
A new pool bar makes the pools and white sand waterfront area with its swaying palm tree the ideal place to relax and enjoy a cocktail.
