While we all aim to live a bit ‘greener’ these days by making conscious sustainable choices that support the health & well-being of our planet, Santa Monica’s iconic five-star oceanfront Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows is taking active strides to protect the big blue with the resort’s newest premium offering – the EverBlue Sustainability Suite, a play on ‘evergreen’ with a nod to the resort’s affinity for the ocean, located just a block from the iconic 5-acre property.
Embodying the best of Southern California living by the sea, the new EverBlue Sustainability Suite, located in the oceanfront Miramar Gardens replete with a separate downstairs living area and gorgeous private patio space will transform its premier bi-level bungalow into an eco-friendly luxury haven with a curated selection of ocean & earth-friendly luxury brands to ensure a fully planet-conscious stay.
Launching on August 1, aptly timed with National Wellness Month, or Earth Wellness Month as we like to call it, the new custom suite shines a spotlight on planet-positive brands across the country who are deeply rooted in sustainability & ocean preservation with a selection of luxury products from green mattresses, blankets & pillows, to zero waste skin & body care, reusable tote bags, sustainable hammocks, luxury loungewear and much more. A percentage of sales from the booking of the suite will directly benefit Heal The Bay, a local environmental non-profit dedicated to protecting and preserving our oceans.
“With our close proximity to the ocean, we think about the future of our oceans and the planet every day. Fairmont Miramar is deeply ingrained in enriching our community and pushing the needle to help support sustainable initiatives that provide a better future for our ecosystem,” says General Manager Sam Jagger. “Our new EverBlue Sustainability Suite perfectly exemplifies our commitment to ‘going green’, or blue in this case with a premium selection of earth-friendly brands making a positive impact on our planet, and we are proud to build this new initiative into our existing and growing list of sustainable practices hotel-wide.”
