Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson Does Its Part for Earth Hour 2019
On Saturday, 30 March 2019, in an effort to raise awareness on global warming, Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson took part in the annual worldwide Earth Hour movement for the second time around.
Thereupon, the resort switched off all non-essential lights and other electrical appliances in the front of the house and the back of the house, as well as dimmed the lights in the public areas, restaurants and the resort’s exterior for a whole hour between 8:30pm and 9:30pm. The usually well-illuminated resort was uncharacteristically subdued, yet at the same time thronged with high-spirited guests and resort staff alike in support of a noble cause. The resort also encouraged its guests to do their part by switching off the lights and electronic devices in their suites and villas. By going dark for a mere one hour, the resort could actually conserve up to 754.93 kilowatts of electricity.
During the celebration, the guests were entertained by a series of programmes specially planned by the resort. The event started off with a fire performance by the sports and recreational team, which took place outside of the resort’s main lobby. With bated breath, the in-house guests had the opportunity to witness jaw-dropping daredevil acts and limit-pushing stunts. Hotel guests and staff were then invited to partake in a candle lighting ceremony to commemorate this year’s Earth Hour. The candles were neatly arranged as the numeral “60” to represent the official logo of Earth Hour, illuminating the resort’s main lobby while the in-house band performed environmental and nature-themed songs to everyone’s delight.
