Angsana Quan Lan Ha Long Bay Hotel and Villas is a new resort on Quan Lan Island. The resort was designed to complement the natural beauty of the island.
The hotel utilizes resource-efficient design features and technologies to reduce its environmental impact and save on operating costs. LED lighting, external shading devices, and an energy-efficient air conditioning system reduce the building’s energy use, while low-flow showerheads and water-efficient plumbing fixtures reduce the building’s water use.
The Angsana Group of hotels and villas has been developed by Banyan Tree Holdings, a leading hospitality group in the region. By certifying its Quan Lan Ha Long Bay resort with EDGE, Banyan Tree is demonstrating its commitment to sustainable development.
Angsana Quan Lan Ha Long Bay Hotel and Villas has received an EDGE Advanced certificate from SGS Vietnam.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window-to-wall ratio, external shading devices, insulation of the roof, air conditioning with a water cooled chiller, variable speed drive pumps, sensible heat recovery from exhaust air, a heat pump for hot water generation, and energy-saving lighting in internal and back-of-house spaces.
Water-efficient water closets and urinals, aerators for faucets, and low-flow showerheads and faucets.
In-situ reinforced concrete slab for the floor and roof and autoclaved aerated concrete blocks for internal walls.
*Part of the energy efficiency percentage may be associated with virtual energy for comfort depending on the presence of heating and cooling systems. Note that virtual energy does not contribute savings to utility bills.
