Bab Al Qasr Hotel’s Calls on Community to Act on Energy Conservation and Climate Change


Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: Bab Al Qasr Hotel will join the world to switch off its lights and pay tribute to the annual Earth Hour Movement on 24 March, 2018.

From 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm on Saturday, the hotel’s signature arch lights, garden, lobby, chandelier, outdoor and restaurants’ lights will be turned off as an act of involvement to the worldwide simultaneous environmental movement. The lobby, grand staircase, and F&B outlets will in turn be illuminated with candles to form an inspiring ambience. The hotel team will gather together to form the Earth Hour logo created from candles in the hotel lobby to show Bab Al Qasr Hotel’s maiden participation in this environmental campaign.

To further give significance to their support in environmental sustainability, Bab Al Qasr Hotel will use charcoal for all its live cooking stations at its iconic Brunch on this notable day.

Regarding Earth Hour and the hotel’s participation, the Director of Protocol, Murshed Al Shamsi said, “Bab Al Qasr Hotel and green technology go hand in hand.
