Initiatives on Sustainable Tourism
Tambuli Seaside Resort and Spa has taken steps to advance ecotourism. Our aim is to minimize our ecological footprint and protect the environment by putting various strategies in place, display our commitment to the preservation of environment and promote responsible travel by incorporating sustainability into every aspect of our operations.
Preservation of Flora and Natural Landscape
When Tytans Properties and Development Inc. (TPDI), the property owner of Tambuli Seaside Resort and Spa, bought and developed the property, they decided to demolish the structures but retained the existing landscape—a natural beachfront with abundant half-century-old trees.
The lush and verdant foliage gives Tambuli Resort that tropical vibe seldom seen and experienced in a Mactan resort.
The Tambuli Seaside Resort and Spa features a desalination facility on site. This facility satisfies the resort’s water needs, guaranteeing our visitors a steady and hygienic water supply.
Waste Reduction and Recycling
To reduce our ecological imprint, Tambuli Seaside Resort and Spa practices recycling and waste reduction techniques. We have put in place a thorough waste management system that separates and recycles different kinds of on-site garbage.
We also employ a zero-waste strategy, incorporating vegetable trimmings in salads and dressings to recycle and/or repurpose raw materials. Even the orange peels are used for fragrance, among other things.
Organic herbs and leafy vegetables
The resort has cultivated its own edible garden filled with herbs and now relies on the organic gardens for 30% of its garnishing and flavoring needs. We have also begun to grow leafy vegetables such as lettuce, kales, romaines, bokchoy, pechay, papaya plants, and soon fruit trees like dragon fruit and banana.
To ensure that the water we use in our gardens is safe and healthy, we put tilapia fish in our water ponds to help provide plants with the essential nutrients they need to grow and thrive in an aquaponic setup..
Tambuli Resort believes that promoting sustainable tourist practices requires environmental understanding. We therefore clean the beach to eliminate rubbish from the sea every three months. Additionally, we collect rubbish from the water’s edge and bring it to the compost pit, where it is converted into garden fertilizer.
The next step will be to have zero single-use plastics since we want to encourage guests to travel responsibly and promote sustainable tourism on their subsequent trips.
