Hooray, obviously we are very pleased and we're over the moon!
On 29th July 'everything' was examined by the Travelife Auditor.
And the auditor used an exceptionally fine tooth comb to do so from examining our employment contracts and salary sheets to looking in our bins to check if we were separating waste as we said we were.
The flow rate of our showers was checked.
Did we have dual flush loos was another question.
Our loos were also flushed to check they were working properly.
It went on:
Were our egg shells really reaching the compost heap?
Do we have as staff handbook?
Are staff paid fairly?
Do we source our food locally?
Do we encourage guests to explore outside of Reef?
Do we know how much water we use per room night?
Can we prove it?
Travelife expect a minimum of 50% low energy bulbs to be installed but we actually have 100%.
Do we minimise the use of chemicals?
Yes most certainly (we use super colloids with carrots for our housekeeping).
Also we have only have fogged mosquitoes twice in five years for we have guppy fish in the ponds that eat the larvae.
Are we actually trying to minimise our energy consumption? Yes, our yearly bill has gone down, year on year, even with increased occupancy.
All in all there were over 100 questions we had to answer satisfactorily relating to various areas of our business.
So we're pleased we've achieved gold and are still constantly striving to improve.
