The forest on
responsible, socially conscious hotel
Blue is blessed with a unique and privileged location on the border of
the McBean Lagoon National Park. As a family business, we believe in
playing our role in preserving the local environment and benefiting the
community for generations to come.
Our hotel has been designed
to have the minimum
environmental impact on the site. We take additional measures to
recycle waste where possible, and we minimize unnecessary water
and electricity usage. All our cleaning products are environmentally
friendly and biodegradable. We
also do our part to educate the local community and visiting tourists
about the importance of ecotourism and the conservation of our fragile
local environment, which constitutes part of the UNESCO designated
Seaflower Biosphere Reserve.
We believe in making a
positive impact on the local
community in Providencia, so that our visitors can contribute towards
the local economy. Almost all of our hotels employees are local
residents of Providencia. In addition to our published room
rates, we collect a small conservation fee from each staying guest.
These fees accumulate a conservation fund that we
distribute to local environmental conservation projects, as well as
cultural preservation initiatives.
We recognise the
fundamental importance of
environmentally and socially responsible tourism in Colombia.
