Green Hotel

A Luxury Resort in Los Cabos Where Luxury is Eco Fiendly
  • Ecological Practices
    • Beach Conservation

      We clean the sand daily of any foreign debris. Additionally, teams of more than 30 employees are organized monthly, to thoroughly clean, sweep, dig and sift the sand for extra cleaning.

    • Waste Separation

      Designated containers are strategically located for recycling garbage around the properties. Additionally, we recycle burned cooking oils to a supplier for conversion to biodegradable fuel.

      Supporting Local Recycling Programs
      Local companies are in charge of processing glass, plastic, metal, cardboard, and toxic material to handle their recycling, and proper disposal.

    • Organic Waste

      Food waste in optimum conditions is donated to local farms.

    • Composting

      Raw food waste is stored and mixed with soil to create a natural fertilizer for our gardens. To accelerate the process, we make use of composting worms.

    • Plastic Use Reduction

      In all of our properties 100% biodegradable avocado seed straws are offered, as well as glass containers and jars for liquids, as an alternative to help reduce the use of plastic bottles. 1.6 million plastic straws are eliminated annually.

    • Sea Turtle Protection

      Measures are taken to protect sea turtles that lay their eggs on our beaches to allow for safe nesting.

  • Energy
    • Power Stations

      Onsite power stations reduce our dependence on non-renewable resources. Additionally, Velas has partnerships with power suppliers that provide solar and wind energy.

    • Reverse osmosis desalination plants

      Our operation is self-sufficient. For every liter of drinking water we are able to reuse 600 milliliters for general purposes, while 400 milliliters are returned to the ground to help preserve the environment. Wastewater treatment facilities allow us to water outdoor gardens and natural environments surrounding the properties.

    • Solar Panels

      Water is preheated with solar energy, saving around 45% of gas.

    • Mindful Laundry Process

      Laundry facilities include a water treatment plant to efficiently filter soap water, which is then used for rinsing, saving 30% of the water utilized in the entire washing process.

    • Suite Design

      Accomodations were designed at conception to be energy efficient. Installed double glass windows keep heat out while state-of-the-art air conditioning equipment reduces pollutant emissions and minimizes energy consumption overall. In addition, each suite's electronic key serves as a lock to turn power on or off when accessing or leaving the suite.

    • Recharging Stations

      At Grand Velas Los Cabos, we offer three electric charging stations, two of them for Tesla vehicles and one more for other models.

  • Community
    • Social Impact

      Velas Resorts is committed to generating jobs within the regions at which the resorts have presence. We maintain a 3:1 staff to guest ratio at Velas Resorts in comparison to maybe 1 employee for every 3-4 guests at other hotels and resorts.

    • Our landscapes

      We have adopted stretches of road landscaping in our destinations that support the cities' maintenance for visitors and residents alike.

    • Our Staff

      The staff is periodically trained in environmental initiatives, to create a "green" awareness to be applied not only at the hotels, but also at home.

  • Resort Guests
    • Creating Awareness

      Our kids and teens' facilities and programs are second to none and encourage the use of recyclable material with fun and ingenious crafts that give our youngest guests smart ideas of how to reuse and follow recycling tips at home. Among the activities that can be enjoyed at our hotels, guests can participate on ecological tours to learn more about the onsite flora and fauna. Insuite, guests have a turndown card that invites them to place it on the bed only when they wish their sheets and towels to be replaced.

    • Sense of place

      We also pay major attention to exclusive experiences for guests off property that give back to the community. We offer experiences in everything from our food & beverage and spa to family bonding activities, romance and soft adventure that not only create extraordinary moments for guests but also support local partners. Wherever possible, these are inspired by Mexican history, culture and traditions, which impart a rich sense of place.
