Olas Verdes Hotel

Olas Verdes Hotel

" In this industry, you always get complaints about room temperature, but since opening the Olas Verdes Hotel, guests actually tell us how much they love the Mitsubishi Electric units!"

In 2013, when a surf shop in Costa Rica lost its headquarters, six patrons turned investors jumped in to build a hotel the school could partner with. "The team wanted to integrate sustainability from the ground up," noted the project manager, Carl Kish, co-founder of STOKE Certified (the first sustainability certification program designed for surf and snow resorts, destinations and events). With the project as a catalyst for sustainable development in the area, choosing high-quality, energy-efficient mechanical systems was a central focus of the group. Their selection: M-Series systems from Mitsubishi Electric. Since opening, the Olas Verdes Hotel was named the first surf hotel in the world to receive LEED® Platinum Status and earned Costa Rica's Sustainable Tourism Certification. Download the PDF below to read more.
