We ask for our customers support in conserving water while visiting Cobalt Coast Dive Resort, one of the world's most precious resources. We ask that if they find drips or leaks, to report them immediately and not to leave water running unnecessarily.
Our 'Water Sense'' toilets and faucets are efficient conservation water management fixtures, using minimum volume to flush the toilets and showers.
The air conditioning system has an environmentally friendly R410-A coolant in it. We ask for our visitors help in reducing the carbon footprint of Cobalt Coast Resort by closing windows and doors when the A/C is on, and turning the A/C off while they are out. The rooms cool down very quickly. There are wonderful prevailing breezes on most days, bringing fresh air and a gentle cross-breeze into your room.
