Banyan Tree Resorts in Ras Al Khaimah received two prestigious awards at the Middle East Hotel Awards. Banyan Tree Al Wadi was awarded ‘Best Sustainable Hotel’ whilst Banyan Tree Ras Al Khaimah Beach was honoured with ‘Best Boutique Hotel’, underscoring the commitment of both properties to the environment through Banyan Tree’s global “Stay for Good” campaign, as well as their position as leading luxury hotels in the region.



Axel Jarosch, General Manager comments, “Our aim is to always provide socially responsible and quality service standards to both our properties in Ras Al Khaimah, a quality which is clear through all Banyan Tree resorts.  We are honoured to be acknowledged with two such esteemed awards.’

To commemorate World Environment Day, the resorts arranged a Community Clean Up Week from 1st to 7th June and subsequently collected 9,880 kg of waste, supported by 180 resort associates as well as 140 community companies including RAK Ceramics, Guardian Glass, Mabani Steel and RAK Public works & Service Department.  A record number of 2,160kg of waste was collected in highs of 40-degree weather on 7th June.

Social and environmental responsibility through conservation and community outreach programmes has been close to Banyan Tree’s heart for many years, supported by Banyan Tree hotels and resorts worldwide.  Since opening in 2010, Banyan Tree Al Wadi and Banyan Tree Ras Al Khaimah Beach have planted over 4,000 indigenous trees and bushes around the resorts, with the aim to support biodiversity by creating a source of food and shelter for indigenous animals, including the Arabian Oryx and the Gazelle.  Further highlighting their social responsibility efforts, both resorts have recently implemented Press Reader in the villas, a technology that allows guests access to over 3,000 newspapers and magazines from around the world, thus reducing paper wastage.
