Sustainable Tourism

The Most Eco-Friendly Resort in Aruba

We work to be the most eco-friendly hotel in Aruba, from cleaning up beaches to helping turtles. By choosing to stay at Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort, you are helping our planet. We are doing everything possible to minimize the environmental footprint of your travels. We pride ourselves on being one of the most eco-friendly hotels in Aruba, and we appreciate your help in our commitment to giving back to our beautiful paradise.

We are very conscious of the environment surrounding us and fully acknowledge the importance of sustaining Aruba's flora and marine life for present and future generations. But most of all, we want to keep Aruba clean for all. We take responsibility for using our water, energy, and land and ask that everyone considers helping. 

Water is precious and every day tons of detergent and millions of gallons of water are used to wash towels that have only been used once. Guests can decide for themselves whether to use that towel again by keeping them on the towel rack or exchanging them by placing them on the floor. Other ways we encourage our guests to help us save precious resources are by:

  • Turning off the faucet while brushing their teeth and/or shaving.
  • Turning off the water while lathering.
  • Not using the toilet as a trash receptacle.
  • Being sure faucets are turned off completely.
  • Switching the Air Conditioner to 24.5 degrees Celsius when leaving their room.

Saving Sea Turtles

Every year from March through September, sea turtles lay their eggs on Eagle Beach. To protect them from harm, we have our staff ensure that there is no human interference. We also help out during hatching season, from May through November. For more information, see the website of TurtugAruba organization. View our live webcam for any updates on their nests at our resort.
