Beach Club: Stay™ | Green
Bellstar Hotels & Resorts has created the Stay™ | Green program - a sustainability plan incorporating company-wide triple-bottom-line operating policies and environmentally-friendly business practices to educate guests, suppliers and staff and to help preserve our planet for future generations. A standard set of guidelines are provided to all operational teams at our hotels and resorts with the goal of creating a sustainable world by using non-intrusive, high quality, eco-friendly products and services. Although these are steps in the right direction, we are constantly striving to create new opportunities to further decrease our ecological footprint while advancing the exceptional experience that our guests expect.

The Beach Club Resort invites all guests to participate in thinking ‘green’ by re-using towels and bedding when possible, turning off appliances and lighting when not in use and recycling during your stay. Every ‘green’ choice helps to keep our environment healthy and clean for generations to come.
The Pacific Prime Steak and Chop Restaurant uses many local products to both help support local ventures and cut down on travel emissions from imported food items. The restaurant carefully recycles reusable materials and composts all biodegradable food waste.
The Beach Club Resort is a proud participant in the HAC Green Key Eco-rating program. Through this program The Beach Club Resort has been recognized as a hotel that has taken significant steps to protect the environment. Strong environmental programs, best management practices, training programs, and engineering solutions have been implemented which have benefited the environment and the local community.
Our Housekeeping staff insures that all recyclable waste from guest rooms are sorted and recycled. When a guest room is not in use, Housekeeping closes all drapery to maintain temperatures and cut down on heating and cooling. Using Standard Textile and Taski products in our guest rooms, the resort has chosen to work with companies who prides themselves on initiatives including superior environmentally friendly products, energy saving production facilities, recycling and future environmental initiatives.
The Beach Club Resort has been carefully designed to include environmentally friendly measures. All guest washroom and powder room toilets are TOTO ultra low flush to reduce water usage. One Bedroom Suites include energy saving appliances which are Energy Star compliant. All guest rooms include digital programmable thermostats to efficiently manage heating and cooling and all interior and exterior doors include complete weather-stripping to reduce weather related temperature variations.
All guest room lighting at the resort is provided using Compact Florescent Lighting or standard lighting with power saving dimmers on decorative lighting fixtures. Daily checks are made throughout the resort to turn off lighting in unoccupied rooms and areas. All public areas use Compact Florescent Lighting and digital programmable thermostats, while separate monitored energy meters gauge energy usage throughout the resort and restaurant. The resort buildings’ construction included sprayed foam insulation, all weather caulking and double pane windows for superior energy efficiency.
