Environmental Initiatives


Rainwater Harvesting

Specific areas around the hotel have been developed to collect the plentiful rainwater in Singapore and recycle it to be used for irrigation programmes on the greenery all of the resort. This way, we save water consumption and use a fantastic recuse wisely.

Aircon Energy Reduction

You may noticed that the aircon system in your room will change its settings automatically if you left your balcony doors opened for longer than 30 seconds. This measure is taken to reduce wastage of energy in losing cold air, and prevent the air-conditioning chemicals to be released to the outdoor environment.

Earth Day

We celebrate Earth Hour every year. During Earth Hour, we switched off all non-essential lighting in the hotel for an hour, from 20:30 to 21:30. All services will resume as normal, but the lighting will be replaced with candles and neon glow sticks, so glow with us!

Strong Passive Design

W Singapore - Sentosa Cove architectural design and orientation layout enhances thermal comfort, natural ventilation and natural day lighting. This helps to decrease the need for supplementary cooling and lighting.

Extensive Use of LED Lighting

LED lighting is energy-efficient, and its extensive use throughout W Singapore - Sentosa Cove serves to reduce overall energy consumption by approximately 39%.

Water Efficient Fittings

Water-efficient fittings under PUB’s Water Efficiency Labeling Scheme are installed within W Singapore - Sentosa Cove, with estimated water savings of over 8,000 m³ per year (approximately more than S$9,000 savings). However, this does lead to some loss of water pressure, which you may experience.

Sustainable Meeting Practices and Paperless Signage

W Singapore - Sentosa Cove has created a clutter-free environment for your meetings, which means that less paper is used. This is also true for our signage found within W Singapore - Sentosa Cove. We utilize digital screen technology to display events and happenings in our premises such as public spaces, lifts, cars and meeting spaces.
