The eco-friendly beach properties of Millennial Resorts in Batangas, Philippines, have registered for the EDGE (Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies) certification.
“The EDGE registration of Millennial Resorts along with our measures to reduce our ecological footprint demonstrates Landco’s leadership and advocacy in green hospitality. Our goal is to ensure the stewardship and sustainability of Batangas as one of the country’s prime tourist destinations,” emphasised Patrick C. Gregorio, senior consultant for hospitality, Landco.
Millennial Resorts, a sister company of Lando Pacific Corp., owns and operates experiential resort accommodations, Crusoe Cabins and Cocoons, which are situated in the master-planned Landco Beachtowns CaSoBē (Calatagan South Beach) and Club Laiya, Laiya, San Juan Batangas, both approximately a three-hour drive from Metro Manila.
Both properties feature designs and practices focused on sustainability. For instance, they feature LED lighting fixtures and water-efficient showers and faucets, while natural sunlight and air flow are also maximised for efficient use of lighting and air conditioning.
Millennial Resorts guests are also provided with the option to go paperless. Check-in and check-out, requests for housekeeping services and room service are also conducted done through the hotel’s proprietary Milli App.
Situated in CaSoBē and Millennial Resorts’ flagship brand, Crusoe Cabins are contemporary rooms constructed from upcycled container vans and refreshed with rustic and beachy exteriors that blend in with the coastline of Calatagan.
Water reduction measures are also undertaken at Aquaria, a waterpark with a giant three-story pool slide at CaSoBē and Laiya Beach Club near Club Laiya.
Other facilities soon-to-open include Captain Barbozza restaurant and bar, Canopy and The Isle – venues for events, and Colony, a beachside co-working space.
