Earth Hour and a new #guestcommentswednesday

It’s Wednesday, so we’ll bring you the latest #GuestCommentsWednesday , but also some news of upcoming events at the Bonnington in JLT.

As always at the end of March, #EarthHour is happening this coming Saturday from 8.30 – 9.30 p.m. Dubai time. We’ve been part of it since we first opened our doors and, over the years, have made great inroads into lowering our energy consumption and carbon footprint. The Bonnington was one of the first hotels in new Dubai with solar panels on its roof and LED lighting and motion sensor controls were also part of our setup for years.

Even more traditional than Earth Hour is the Dubai World Cup, the world’s richest horse racing event, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

As always, we’ll be telecasting it live in our Healey’s Bar & Terrace and this year, we’re throwing in a free welcome drink:

We’re switching off! Switch off, too!

On Saturday, 31st March, we will again be supporting the worldwide Earth Hour initiative. We have been taking part in the annual Earth Hour celebrations since 2008 and on Saturday, we will be switching off all external lights on our building for one hour between 8.30 – 9.30 p.m.

We will also be reducing light levels in our public areas and in the Cavendish Restaurant and Healey’s Bar & Terrace.

The Cavendish will offer an a la carte dinner menu by candle light, while Healey’s Terrace will be lit by torches and Healey’s Bar will serve flaming cocktails.

We hope you join us in marking this year’s Earth Hour! You can find out more about this initiative at
