In celebration of its three-year success and growth, voco Al Khobar commemorates its opening of 100 other hotels of the voco brand worldwide. Officials, managers, and employees marked the occasion in Alkhobar.
In light of their success, the Regional General Manager of IHG and General Manager of voco Riyadh, M. Allaf, emphasised their commitment to proudly serving their community.
“We are celebrating three years of success and achievements at voco Al Khobar and look forward to many more similar achievements in the years to come, as we are committed to serving the community, improving the quality of life and well-being of guests, in order to achieve the goals of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.”
voco has taken several steps to achieve its sustainability goals, primarily by reducing plastic consumption and using recycled materials. These steps are in accordance with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 goals – aiming to be carbon neutral by 2060.
Some of its initiatives include:
- Using large-sized containers for bathroom facilities to reduce plastic waste;
- Using glass bottles to abandon plastic bottles in guest rooms
- Using 100 percent recycled materials in mattress padding;
- Adopting ventilated shower heads in bathrooms to cut down water usage and energy consumption.
“One of the voco brand’s recent initiatives includes the opening of an EV station at voco Riyadh, which is in line with our sustainability goals,” Allaf stated.
As travellers today prefer to opt for environmentally-friendly hotels, voco aims to be an ideal and perfect destination for holidaymakers. The five-star hotel offers 300 rooms with international flavours in its three dining options. Its world-class facilities include spa rooms, a swimming pool, Healthclub resources, saunas, and eleven conference rooms with modern technology.
