Saying No to Single-Use Plastics

As part of our sustainability efforts, we have made significant strides in reducing single-use plastics. Say goodbye to wasteful amenities as we have replaced single-use shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in our guest rooms with convenient refillable bottles. We have also taken steps to eliminate single-use plastic packaging in our Food and Beverage outlets, ensuring that every bite you take is a step towards a greener future. And of course, plastic straws are a thing of the past as we embrace eco-friendly alternatives.

Making a Difference

Step onto our Level 5 outdoor area and discover a rooftop garden. With a variety of green areas and plants, this garden not only adds a touch of natural beauty to our hotel but also serves as a sustainable area for you to relax and indulge in during your stay, and make use of dedicated green spaces such as our rentable BBQ areas.

In our continuous efforts to reduce our carbon footprint, we have implemented state-of-the-art Beolec Voltage Optimisation (VO) units. These cutting-edge installations, introduced in March 2021, actively reduce electricity consumption and demand on the grid. By staying with us, you are directly contributing to a greener, more sustainable future for our planet.

Go Green Initiative

Join our eco-conscious initiative and be rewarded for your support. Opt for our “Go Green” program and choose not to have your room serviced daily. By doing so, you help us minimize our environmental impact and, as a token of our appreciation, receive a $15 Food and Beverage credit. It’s our way of saying thank you for making a difference.

At Novotel Surfers Paradise, we believe in a harmonious coexistence with nature. Experience a luxurious stay where sustainability is seamlessly integrated into every aspect of your visit. Embrace the beauty of our coastal paradise while making a positive impact on the environment. Together, let’s create a greener, brighter future for generations to come.
