Green Stewardship

Green Stewardship for a Green DestinationOur Team and the environment are our most precious assets. Tigh-Na-Mara is committed to continually enhance our guest services in a respectful, supportive and natural environment. We are grateful to have 22 acres in one of the most beautiful parts of Vancouver Island, and perhaps, the world. Tigh-Na-Mara recognizes our role in stewardship for this property. We support our community and the environment through sustainable practices while creating memorable guest experiences.

Going Green at Tigh-Na-Mara

Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort & Conference Centre continually implements new techniques and technologies, staying at the forefront of environmental stewardship.

Reduce, Re-use, Recycle and Re-Think

Recycling is a part of every day life at Tigh-Na-Mara. Our team recycles paper, bottles, plastics, cans and food waste. In our guestrooms we offer recycling pick up. As we replace appliances throughout the Resort, energy efficient models are installed. In addition, gently used room amenities are donated to community service organizations.

While building the Resort the owners took great pride in reducing the number of downed trees. To this end, all trees removed, were used where possible in our log-style design.

Guests staying at Tigh-Na-Mara can participate in our linen re-use program, reducing water, energy and waste. Guestrooms and linens are cleaned using biodegradable products and our culinary team has a comprehensive compost program in place, to reduce food waste.

Electric golf carts are used throughout the Resort as our primary mode of transportation.

Edible Ecosystem

The seasonal bounty of a rich Vancouver Island harvest is served daily in each of our three West Coast themed restaurants. Items such as fresh seafood, locally grown greens, vegetables and cheeses punctuate our menus seasonally. Rosemary, basil, thyme, and chives are harvested from the Resort herb garden adding a flavourful punch to seasonal dishes.
