The local vegetables are utilised in the hotels kitchens and are tendered to by the Culinary team who take great pride in their garden and on top of health benefits, the hotel sees improvement in cost efficiency.

Other Green projects such as the Light Stay Project sees efforts like staircase lighting saving, recycling of cooking oil, the use of EMS system in guest rooms, recycling of cardboard and water bottles, and reduced plastic usage throughout the hotel.

In keeping with Hilton Hotels and Resorts Sustainability initiatives, we will continue to strive to reduce our carbon footprint in the Heritage city of Melaka”, said General Manager of DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Melaka, Carey Osborne.
