Leading the region in  sustainable development, the hotel was also awarded Gold certification by the  United States Green Building Council (USGBC) as the first LEED Gold hotel  property by Majid Al Futtaim in Dubai. This is in line with the company’s strategy  of making all its new developments compliant with world-class green building  standards to achieve sustainable economic growth in the communities where it  operates.
