In December 2012, Executive Housekeeper, Wayne Harris, and Resort General Manager, Warwick Kahl implemented a conservation scheme aimed at rewarding customers for helping the resort reduce its carbon footprint.
“With the rising popularity of responsible tourism and with most hotel chains giving customers the option to reuse towels and postpone daily servicing, we decided to take it one step further,” Mr Kahl said.
Under the new Conservation Credit scheme – guests who choose not to have their room serviced, will be rewarded with a $15 conservation credit (per room) to put towards a treatment at our Kingfisher Natural Therapy salon OR a full-day guided eco tour of Fraser Island.
Guests can opt in to the program by placing a card on their outside door handle each night. Points are then redeemed off the cost of touring or salon treatments on checkout.
“This scheme perfectly complements our existing activities and ties in with Kingfisher Bay's environment ethos,” Mr Kahl said. “We will reward our loyal customers - with an eco-accredited day tour or treatment in our spa whose products are derived from renewable and sustainable sources and recycled packaging is used - for doing their bit to help reduce our carbon footprint.”
“Obviously we have housekeeping standards to maintain, so we’ve limited the offer to three consecutive days,” he said. “It’s just another small, but significant, way our eco-conscious house guests can help us protect Fraser’s fragile environment.”
