The environment is of immense importance to the Paradis Plage. The Paradis Plage has a strong ethos of sustainability of the natural and social environment as well as creating 120 jobs within the resort.
The Resort covers 3 hectares of which 50% are open and full of beautiful plants and natural flora all gathered from within a 60 km2. The wastewater is treated at our treatment station in the resort and then used to irrigate our gardens.
Our accommodation and main reception and restaurants have all been designed to get the most from the natural sunlight. This in turn reduces the amount of electrical energy used.
Each suite, bungalow or villa has its own air conditioning system (hot & cold) and its own boiler. Communal areas have sensors that trigger the lights when crossed.
All our waste is sorted and recycled where possible.
Our resort has been built using only natural wood and stone. There is no steel to be seen. All of our furniture, pottery, lamps and weavings have been made or manufactured in and around Agadir and Marrakech keeping alive the old traditions of the Moroccan people. The paintings are the work of local artists.
Paradis Plage has a workforce of professionals, men and women who believe in our resort and what we stand for. Their enthusiasm and skills make the resort what it is today.
