Iberotel Makadi Beach

Iberotel Makadi Beach is a premium, five-star holiday resort in the heart of the Madinat Makadi Resort on the Red Sea. The hotel is a low-rise complex set amongst gardens. The structure blends beautifully with the natural environment and has even been recognized and awarded for the effort that has gone into maintaining the natural beauty of the natural surroundings. The main focus of the refurbishment was on lighting of rooms and public areas as well as providing hot water for the 313 guest rooms in an environmentally friendly way.

Description

The refurbishment included the switch to solar water heaters to provide renewable energy and environmental friendly source of hot water. Also replacing halogen and florescent lighting lamps with LED bulbs and fixtures has also helped saved energy.
