Here are the top sustainable initiatives that Al Bait Sharjah has adopted:

100% plastic free: The property uses sustainable alternatives such as steel and glass straws and biodegradable garbage bags as well as glass water bottles and metal room keys.

Portable water filtration plant: The property produces its own premium quality still and sparkling drinking water. The water is packaged in sanitised glass bottles that are stocked in the rooms, and also retail at the resort’s dining destinations. Proceeds from all water sales goes to the ‘The Big Heart Foundation’, which supports underprivileged children and refugee camps by supplying water to them and providing for their education.

Zero waste policy: All organic and non-organic food waste is transformed into high quality compost that is used to maintain the property’s landscaping. Al Bait Sharjah also recycles all its glass, cardboard and kitchen oil as well as any plastic remains left by guests.

Reduced water and energy consumption: The reduces its overall carbon footprint by using motion sensors for lighting to avoid unnecessary use of energy, as well as optimising air conditioning depending on occupancy. The front desk air conditioning is programmed with a timer to only switch on during the dedicated hours of operation and kitchen exhaust fans across all dining venues are built to detect the heat of the air and adjust their speed according to the equipment in use.

Tesla charging station: The resort not only encourages its in-house guests, but also passersby to stop by and charge up their Tesla at the dedicated charging station, set at the entrance of the resort.
