For the third consecutive year, The Hotel Christopher is proud to be awarded the Green Globe Certification for its continued commitment to nature-first tourism and low-impact practices. It also remains the only hotel in Saint-Barthélemy to have obtained certification. This year's award recognizes the new efforts of the hotel for its entirely self-sufficient water management system thanks to its own water treatment and desalination plant making it the only hotel on the island to have a drinking water station. In a partnership with AQUAchiara, the French leader in transforming unpurified water into microfiltered quality drinking water for more than 15 years, their water is bottled and purified for hotel guests and restaurant guests. In The Chrisopher’s two restaurants, led by French Michelin-starred chef Arnaud Faye, the completely sufficient water system allows for a sizable reduction of CO2 emissions, as well as eliminating the shipping and plastic impacts from outsourced bottled water. The innovative project, co-signed by ADEME, a French ecological transition agency, is the first of its kind on the island, and a mammoth effort by the hotel in accordance with Green Globe commitments to operate at the highest level of sustainability possible.
