Two top tourism awards for luxury Salcombe resort Tuesday 1 May 2007 PDF Print ‘Quality in Tourism’ and Green Tourism give top marks for H20 Resorts When H20 Resorts launched last summer they promised to offer a millionaire lifestyle at a fraction of the price in one of the most oversubscribed holiday destinations in the UK; Salcombe, South Devon. Now the National Quality Assurance Standards (NQAS) at British Tourism have awarded H2O Resorts five stars, putting them, according to Richard Haines at British Tourism “…in an extremely select group, offering the very finest of accommodation and service.” H2O Resorts offer co-ownership opportunities onboard US-built luxury floating penthouses, the first of their kind to be moored in the UK. 60 feet long by 16 feet wide, each boat sleeps eight, with four double staterooms, a sumptuous lounge with home theatre, and a fully equipped galley. On the upper deck is a sun-lounge area, a wet bar, waterslide and hot-tub all helping to add to your new luxury lifestyle! Through their unique co-ownership plan, H2O clients can enjoy a 2000 square foot luxury floating penthouse, without the hassle and cost of buying it themselves. Since the launch, H20 Resorts have sold most of the high-season weeks on the first boats and as a result have arranged for a further three to be commissioned to meet the incredible demand over the next 2 years. The Luxury Ecological choice… Not only do the boats offer a proven five star level of luxury, they also present a green alternative and as such are also on course for an award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS) for their unique waste disposal system, onboard generator, energy efficiency, support of local traders and their location in Salcombe, South Devon, cutting out the need to fly. Some of the green incentives undertaken by H2O include: • Ensuring that the boats cause as little impact as possible to the locality through suppression of noise, light, heat and minimisation of energy waste. • All energy and heating is run off an exceptionally efficient diesel generator which is charged to the customer separately as an effective energy taxation system. • All waste from the craft is graded and transferred to the harbour recycling bins. • Sewage waste is kept in a sealed tank on board where it is treated by enzymes in the most environmentally safe way possible, ensured not to harm the local environment. • Low flow taps and efficient flush system which is gravity fed into the treatment tank. • All electrics are 110v low consumption, and 12 v circuits are used at night. From families to social trend setters, city executives to frequent holiday goers with an environmental conscience, H2O Resorts offer a chance to live the high life on your summer holidays in classic yet sustainable style. PRESS TRIP H2O Resorts are offering opportunities for travel journalists to visit the Salcombe resort and stay on our flagship boat “The Oceanus” over the final week of May and first week of June 2007 with a view to forthcoming features.
