The Sofitel Singapore Sentosa & Spa has recently launched a Green Meeting Package.
Priced at S$125++ per person for half a day (US$92.30++), or S$150++ per person for a full day, both packages include the use of one main meeting room, morning and afternoon coffee breaks, lunch, stationary, lunch, a flipchart, and the usage of a built-in LCD projector and screen. The prices are subject to 10 per cent service charge and prevailing GST.
As part of its Green Meeting Package, the Resort offers three coffee break menus, made with ingredients sourced from local farms as well as produce grown locally on the Resort.
Some of these dishes include Portuguese Egg Tart with locally farmed eggs, Chia Seed Pudding garnished with locally farmed mint and Vegetable Wrap with Sweet Chilli and Local Basil, made with mushrooms and basil that are both locally farmed.
Besides locally farmed produce, the Resort also offers more environmentally friendly ingredients, such as Impossible Meat. The plant-based patty is used in a slider and topped with locally farmed lettuce.
Outside of the meeting rooms, participants can engage in team-bonding activities that have a sustainable element, such as a mixology workshop at LeBar, where they can learn how to make the Sentosa Sling, using lemon leaves harvested from the Resort’s lemon garden.
Participants can also indulge in sustainable cocktails at LeBar such as The Urban Decay and Carbon Eclipse. These two cocktails are made using ecoSPIRITS, a closed-loop distribution system that nearly eliminates packing waste in the premium spirits supply chain.
Carbon Eclipse is made using ecoSPIRITS Rosemary Stem Tequila, Pineapple Core, Mango Juice and Egg White, while The Urban Decay is made using ecoSPIRITS Jackfruit Seed-infused Gin, Orange Skin and Black Lemons. Each cocktail saves 150g of carbon emissions.
A Green Mark-certified building, green features at the Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa include the installation of LED lights throughout the property which help reduce energy consumption and improve energy savings. In addition, water-efficient fittings have been implemented throughout the Resort, leading to better water efficiency.
The Straits Ballroom and Saffron Ballroom at the Celebrations and Events Centre, as well as a majority of the meeting rooms feature floor-to-ceiling glass doors, that allow plenty of natural light to fill the space. On sunny days, meetings can be held comfortably without the need for artificial lighting, thereby reducing energy consumption.
