Committed to the Responsible Tourism
As Aqua Hotel, we are concerned of the impact that human activity may cause on the environment, as well as on the social and cultural sphere. We understand that the touristic development should be sustainable. Therefore, it should protect the environment by making a rational use of natural resources.
One of our main aims is to improve the sustainable management, assuming the continuous improvement commitment in all domains of sustainability: social, economic, environmental and client’s satisfaction.
Hence, we commit ourselves to manage sustainably our activity and apply the principles and objectives stated by the UN Sustainable Development Summit 2015, the COP 21 and the World Charter for Sustainable Tourism +20.
In our process of continuous improvement in order to enhance the environmental management, we have reduced the electricity and water consumption, besides making headway on facilitating recycling for waste.
Beyond the sustainable commitment
We undertake to maintain and expand our partner network and service suppliers who opt for ecological products and encourage environmental certificates.
We stand for institutions such as Incorpora – La Caixa which integrates people who are in risk of social exclusion and organisations with vast social value like Caritas, so to strengthen our social engagement.
We sign up to motivate, promote and train our employees under a good practice belief and according to the Responsible Tourism. Additionally, we commit, internally and externally, to inform about progress and environmental actuations of our company.
Aqua Hotel manifests the express commitment to fight against sexual abuse or any other type of harassment or assault. Specifically, on children, teenagers, women or any minority. Likewise, we will adopt universal accessibility measures.
Future projects on expansion of facilities or any activities will be subject to sustainability criteria and efficiency of resources.
This Policy on Responsible Tourism will be updated whenever circumstances require, adopting and publishing, in both cases, the new sustainable goals.
Our commitment has been rewarded by obtaining the distinctive Biosphere Responsible Tourism, thus becoming Aqua Hotel the first hotel chain certified to have a larger number of suistainable hotels of Costa Barcelona Maresme.

At Aqua Hotel we are fully commitment to the environment. Thus, we offer a state-of-the-art Wallbox electric charger compatible with all brands of plug-in electric and hybrid cars.
Our goal is to provide hotel guests with the possibility of charging their vehicle during their stay, while using the hotel facilities, restaurants or bars.
The charging station is equipped with two types of hoses, a Schuko EU and a TYPE 2, (European and Asian) capable of providing a power of up to 22kW adapted to any battery.
Aqua Hotel steps forward towards creating an infrastructure in favour of using electric cars, contributing to the promotion of sustainable private transport and complying with its annual Biosphere Responsible Tourism badge improvement plan.
