Mövenpick Hotel Frankfurt City Meets the Challenges of Being a Green Hotel

Green Globe recertified Mövenpick Hotel Frankfurt City in September for the ninth year.

Head to the Dominican Republic, with crystal clear waters in the sun drenched Caribbean at Club Med Michès.Voted 4.5 star reviews on Trip Advisor and has a BREEMAM certificate which basically means it performs under the Green Globe certification to meet the highest standards of sustainability. One of my favourite concepts is there are no plastic initiatives to remove all single use plastic from it’s resorts. Upon arrival you are provided with glass bottles recycled and made on site.
