On the 19th March 2016, Earth Hour brought together communities from across the world celebrating a commitment to the planet by switching off lights for one designated hour. People taking part were encouraged to continue the commitment to Earth Hour for longer than the designated hour in question. 

Our brand wide theme for this year’s Earth Hour is: #FUNPLUGGED. In light of this – we were serving a themed Funplugged & Tonic cocktail across all our hotel bars and lounges during the period 14-20 March 2016.
