VOMO is a proud member of the Mamanuca Environment Society (MES), an organisation founded in 2001 to protect the stunning marine environment of the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji.
Along with other key stakeholders in the region, we are committed to the promotion of environmental awareness and to protect the marine and terrestrial resources in the area. To support this cause-worthy initiative, a nominal fee of FJ$5 will be added to the room charge per stay. It is entirely voluntary and the fee may be removed if guests choose not to participate.
‘MES remains forever grateful for the generosity of our sponsors’
VOMO is committed to reducing our human footprint and has implemented some steps towards making VOMO single-use plastic free. We started small by eradicating the use of plastic straws on island and replacing with paper ones. The next phase was the introduction of our own bottling plant on VOMO. We opened an automated bottling plant that provides guests with purified drinking water in sealed reusable glass bottles. We have also commissioned our own scented soaps and lotions and will be providing these in guest villas in beautiful ceramic dispensers, allowing us to do away with the small single use plastic bottles that hotels currently use. These are significant steps towards ensuring VOMO stays committed to our stated cause to care for our environment, so that generations to come can enjoy this pristine environment we call home.
Water Bottling Plant
VOMO produces pure still and sparkling drinking water at our own state-of-the-art bottling plant. Drinking water is produced through a reverse osmosis system and treated to the highest international standards to purify. It is mineralized and bottled in our own VOMO recycled glass bottles that have been sterilized at the bottling plant. The VOMO bottling plant aims to reduce the use of single-use plastic bottles and support our journey towards more sustainable practices and responsible reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
VOMO bottled water will be served in villas and residences and is served at bars and restaurants. It is completely safe to drink.
