Moonlight Head, Great Ocean Road, a new hotel development on Australia`s highest and arguably most magnificent headland, has been welcomed into the Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) Australian membership ahead of its opening in 2004.
This 51 room property has been designed to the highest environmental standards by one of Australia`s most distinguished Architects, Glenn Murcutt – Australia`s only recipient of the prestigious Pritzker Prize for Architecture and holder of the Green Pin from Denmark for Environmental Design.
The distinctive attributes of the property and its standards of service excellence have made the hotel worthy for membership prior to opening. comments Lynne Ireland, Regional Director for SLH.
SLH is the first independent hotel consortium to join the International Hotels Environment Initiative (IHEI). As a member of IHEI – the hotel industry`s environmental programme – SLH is driving a pro-active enterprise to promote responsible and sustainable tourism progress across the globe.
We believe our role is to encourage social and environmental responsibility within our members, and to develop further understanding within the broader community, comments Lynne Ireland. By adopting ecotourism principles, our hotels are not only preserving and enhancing their natural environment and resources, but also supporting local communities (and often wildlife) in the process – Moonlight Head, Great Ocean Road is a perfect example this.
Moonlight Head, Great Ocean Road takes the Australian membership to 12, with another new member to be announced soon.
The hotel is located only 2 1/2 hours drive from the Melbourne CBD and just 15 minutes by car to the famous 12 Apostles. Opens 2004.
