Hats off to the Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok. The luxury hotel hailed for its riverside location and the largest spa treatments rooms in the city gets serious props for its new eco-friendly investment. The hotel has spent Bt 13 million to install solar panels across a 938-square-meter space on the rooftop to power a solar water heating system. This installation is the largest such solar system to be found in the hotel business in Thailand.
Committed to environmental conservation and social responsibility, the Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok is reducing its carbon footprint by harnessing the power of the sun as a renewable energy source. The newly installed solar water heating system will enable the hotel to heat 25 million liters of water a year, which is sufficient hot water production for the 802 guestrooms of the Shangri-La Wing and the Krungthep Wing.
