Does Blue Reef invest in the local community?
Blue Reef is involved in the development of the local community of Jambiani.
We try, as much as possible, to use local entrepeneurs from jambiani and we help local people to start their own small business.
Nicky developed, together with some others, during 2015 a school which is located in jambiani.
This school provides education for European and local children.
Blue Reef donates money to local families so they can sent their child to this school.
Blue Reef and responsible tourism?
To save energy we use fans instead of aircon.
We have big windows so the natural windflow is used to cool down the rooms.
We work together with a waste processing company to get rid of our rubbish in a proper way.
We don’t use plasitc straws, and we try to avoid selling plastic water bottles by using water decanters.
