TUI Sensimar Cabo Verde wins Travelife Award
Opened to guests in late 2016 TUI’s esteemed Sensimar brand finally arrived on Sal Island, Cape Verde when TUI Sensimar Cabo Verde opened its doors to eager guests in December. Now in its second year of operation, the Resort has been recognised by the international sustainability certification Travelife with its Gold Award for sustainability in tourism.
The third Resort developed by The Resort Group PLC to be awarded the recognition, TUI Sensimar Cabo Verde follows suit to MELIÃ Tortuga Beach Resort and MELIÃ Dunas Beach Resort & Spa. A strict qualification process, the Resort was assessed against 163 sustainability criteria, which will be reviewed again after two years. The assessment criteria included environmental issues, such as minimising the amount of energy, waste and water. The social criteria recognises positive actions for employee welfare, working with the local community and businesses, child protection and human rights.
The accolade means TUI Sensmiar Cabo Verde now appears on The Travelife Collection – a portfolio of certified hotels and accommodations that are working to protecting their local environment, and preserving the quality of their destination as well as the lives of local communities. Those thinking about a booking holiday destination which cares about people and the environment use The Travelife Collection to find the perfect accomodation.
The adult-only brand is TUI’s hotel concept for couples who attach importance to peaceful, stylish and comfortable hotels offering that personal touch and varied culinary experiences. Aptly titled ‘Time for being twosome’, the Sensimar brand places emphasis on the importance of uninterrupted quality time, putting the hotel at the centre of the holiday experience, ensuring every last detail means couples can reconnect, relax and recuperate in ultimate luxury.
Unable to resist the ‘no stress’ mantra of the archipelago, the 5-star hotel is the perfect escapism for couples looking for year-round sunshine, swim-up pools, jacuzzi’s and unbeatable cuisine. TUI Sensimar Cabo Verde sits just footsteps away from the shore, on Algodoeiro Beach and offers 302 rooms and suites all accompanied by spectacular views.
First established in the summer of 2009, the TUI Sensimar brand has grown to now operate over 50 hotels in several countries. One of the four core brands that allows TUI to meet the different needs and preferences of its customers, the Sensimar hotels mean TUI can embrace the latest trends and offer those unique holiday experiences which meet the requirements of couples looking for that perfect getaway.
The newly built TUI Sensimar Cabo Verde offers couples two freshwater pools, three bars, fully-equipped gym, YHI Spa and four restaurants including a stylish Japanese Teppanyaki venue, classic Italian and chic Culinarium. All suites are designed for two people, complete with air-conditioning, balcony or terrace and unbeatable views. Exclusively for TUI Sensimar Cabo Verde guests there is a private beach, lined with sunbeds as well as two outdoor pools surrounded by plenty of sunbeds and Bali beds as well as a snack bar to cater for every need.
In the last Winter and Summer season, Sensimar opened hotels in the Maldives, Sardinia as well as Cape Verde, highlighting that demand for adults-only hotels remains high, as the trend for couple’s holidays is on the up. The fifth operational Resort developed by The Resort Group PLC, TUI Sensimar Cabo Verde has proven a solid investment for the Group.
