Since its opening, the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa has achieved a great deal in the way of eco-friendly services for its guests and surrounding community. As part of the Aqualea Resort & Residences complex, the condo hotel has a unique vision for a signature hospitality destination on Clearwater Beach.
One example of the resort's eco-friendly emphasis is its daily provision of fresh fruit for spa-goers, as well as its Sandava Spa's exclusive use of natural products in their practices and treatments. And not only does the resort demonstrate environmental responsibility to its natural surroundings, it cares for the surrounding social community as well. Rather than hosting an elaborate party to celebrate the resort’s first-year anniversary, resort executives gave back to the Clearwater community through a Hyatt Hotels corporate grant. The resort contributed $15,000 to the Homeless Emergency Project (HEP), an organization committed to providing Pinellas County’s homeless and low-income families with housing, food, clothing, and support services to obtain self-sufficiency and an improved quality of life. “When we were seeking a charitable partner, we were particularly drawn to HEP as it helps better the lives of local children,” says Brian Kramer, general manager of the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa.
But the good deeds don’t stop there. In addition to caring for its neighbors, the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa demonstrates ample ability to care for its guests. Just nine months after its debut, the resort secured an AAA Four Diamond ranking as evidence of its commitment to delivering the highest quality accommodations, hospitality, and service. Less than four percent of more than 31,000 properties achieve this standing.
The Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa sets the bar high in exceptional resort and recreation service and amenities.
Along with significant contributions to the Clearwater community, the resort is a recipient of honors for exceptional quality, service, and ecological responsibility. The 250-suite condo hotel resort recently received a three-key rating from the Green Key Eco-Rating Program, a graduated rating system which honors hoteliers committed to improving their environmental and fiscal performance.
Available to hoteliers at www.resort-recreation.com, the Green Key Eco-Rating Program is a comprehensive self-assessment which reviews five main operational areas of a property and nine areas of sustainable practices. Based on assessment results, hoteliers are awarded a Green Key rating on a scale of 1-5. Three green keys are designated to hotels that have made significant advances in environmental protection practices.
Kramer feels particularly honored to have received this elite three-key rating in the resort’s first year of operation. "We are dedicated to protecting this beautiful destination for future generations of travelers to come."
