Sustainable development practices are a natural outgrowth of Sunset World’s concern for preserving the beautiful natural resources and the environment. At the heart of this company’s long-term vision is a plan to take a leadership role in developing tourism that works in harmony with the environment, society, culture, and the local economy.
During the construction of Hacienda Tres Ríos, Sunset World’s flagship resort, a series of environmental criteria were established and they guided the resort architectural design and engineering. Hacienda Tres Ríos facilities offer luxury and comfort along with highly efficient lighting, heating and cooling systems.
Sunset World has extended the environmental lessons learned in the construction of Hacienda Tres Ríos to all of its six all-inclusive resorts by introducing the “Energy Efficiency Program”, drastically reducing the carbon footprint of the hotel chain, and the “Farm to table” gastronomical concept, bringing fresh local products to guests for their dining pleasure and hiring local labor.
