Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa, Kuwait’s idyllic resort, joined forces with the rest of the world and marked the annual Earth Hour by dimming and switching off lights across its property for an hour.
On Saturday, March 29, at 8:30pm local time hotel colleagues gathered and formed the shape of the Earth holding lit candles to mark Earth Hour.
Together with Jumeirah Group’s luxurious properties around the world, Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa turned off its façade lights, signage and those on its tress along the garden and the hotel water fountains. This resulted in saved energy of approximately 1200 kwh.
Elsewhere, lights throughout the lobby, food and beverage outlets, Talise Spa and colleagues’ accommodation were all dimmed. Candles were also placed around the fountain and staircases to provide light and save power.
Earth Hour originally started in Sydney on March 31, 2007, when 2.2 million people and 2,100 businesses turned off their lights for one hour. Many major cities, inspired by the collective effort, have since joined Earth Hour, which has turned into a global movement.
