Hotel Yaramar looks after the environment

25Mar

Hotel Yaramar not only looks amazing from the outside but also deep inside as for years we have done all we can to make it more environmentally friendly.

Everybody knows that we take good care of our guests, but not many people may know that we also take care of planet Earth. Doing it is not as difficult as it seems as with a bit of willpower and a bit of effort it is possible to change our bad habits.

These are some of the environmentally friendly measures we do take at Hotel Yaramar:

  • We have a department of environmental management.
  • We only print documents when it is strictly necessary.
  • On the 30th of March we contribute by saving energy during the “Earth Hour”. From 8:30 P.M to 21:30 P.M we use as little energy as possible and light some candles around the
  • Our guests are asked to leave a card on the bed whenever they want their sheets changed.
  • We change the towels when they are left on the bath/shower o whenever the chambermaid thinks it is
  • We use eco-friendly cleaning products and washing up liquids. They are biodegradable
  • We separate waste and we recycle paper and plastics.
  • The bulbs in the hotel use LED technology.
  • We have presence detectors in our public toilets.
  • When the room card is taken off the energy consumption in rooms is the minimum possible, not just in order to save energy but also for safety.
  • The electric energy we use is 100% from renewable sources.

Did you know that Hotel Yaramar was so eco-friendly? Take note, raise awareness and do your bit to help from home.

Planet Earth will be very grateful!

Los Gaitanes Gorge Protected Natural Area & Caminito del Rey

21Mai

This week on the blog of Hotel Yaramar we bring back our section about natural landscapes in the Malaga area.

Our recommendation this time is Los Gaitanes Gorge Protected Natural Area.

Los Gaitanes Gorge is a canyon created by river Gualhorce in inland Malaga, between the towns of Ardales, Álora and Antequera.

In Los Gaitanes Gorge is where “El Caminito del Rey” (The King’s Pathway”) is located. This is a walkway pinned along the walls of the narrow gorge of El Chorro.

This amazing walkway is more than 3 kilometres long, was closed for over 25 years as it had fallen into disrepair, but after a lot of renovation works it opened again to the public in 2015.

“El Caminito” is about 1 hour away by car from our hotel and since its reopening 3 years ago it has become one of the most popular tourist attractions in Malaga.

If you would like more information about this beautiful place or you would like to book a visit please click here to access its official website http://www.caminitodelrey.info

If enjoy rambling you will surely love “El Caminito del Rey”, as there are not many places in the world as stunning as this one, and we have the great fortune of having it close.

Enjoy nature during your holiday in Costa del Sol!
