Eco-Friendly Practices

An important part of our service is to maintain the eco-friendly practices in order to keep surroundings lively and healthy. We believe that it is our responsibility to preserve the beauty of the Kathmandu Valley and Nepal as a whole. At Yellow Pagoda Hotel, we have been applying significant measures  to reduce negative effects in environment :

  • Installment of solar water heaters(Less use of gas and fuels) – in 2015, the power in Nepal was not reliable. There were often both scheduled and unscheduled outages in Kathmandu that made the usually luxurious stay at the Yellow Pagoda unbearable. For the benefits of our guests, we elected to install more than 40 units of solar water heaters on the roof of the hotel, so that even during the outages,Two backup generators would restore power automatically within 2 minutes of an outage. 
  • Laundry water conservation -in 2018, thousands of liters of water were being wasted in the hotel due to linen laundry. With every room cleaning, all bedding and towels were replaced and laundered. On top of using valuable clean water, detergent and utility bills cost the hotel thousands of dollars. It was then that we began the water conservation initiative. In each room, guests will find a card on their bedside tables. If guests realize the importance of conserving Earth’s most important natural resource, they can elect to place the card on their pillow and hang up clean towels on their racks in the bathroom. If guests choose to “go green” housekeeping will make the bed, but will not change bedding nor clean hung-up towels. Linen left on the floor will be laundered. With this program, guests can save thousands of liters of water to preserve the environment and to lower hotel costs which can then be used for better customers service.
    Not only is conservation the right thing for a business to do, but it also makes long-term sense to lower utility costs and improve service across the hotel.
