Environment

Zanzibar's Objectives are to develop, plan, promote and manage tourism, and in response to this, all aspects of the new Amber Resorts will prioritise design methods, which reflect best practice regarding sustainability and the environment. Existing eco-systems will be preserved and where possible enhanced. Priority will be given to economically viable environmental and sustainable projects indicating a long term commitment maximising the positive effects, whilst being culturally responsible, socially desirable, ecologically friendly and environmentally sustainable.

Extensive use of both photovoltaic systems, and solar hot water panels with tank storage will be incorporated into the properties. Cooling will be augmented by using the ‘stack-effect’ of air circulation within the buildings, allowing hot air to escape at upper roof levels. The buildings will be orientated and planned to make best use of solar shading and the cooling breezes.

All available surface water will be collected throughout the resort in a series of landscaped amenity ponds, and used for ‘Grey Water Applications’, as a fire reservoir and to irrigate the landscaping, with a clean filtered water supply being augmented by way of mains and shallow drills.
Extensive use of both photovoltaic systems with battery storage, and solar hot water panels with tank storage will be incorporated into the properties. Cooling will be augmented by using the ‘stack-effect’ of air circulation within the buildings, allowing hot air to escape at upper roof levels. The buildings will be orientated and planned to make best use of solar shading and the cooling breezes.
