We believe in playing our part in looking after the environment, being a positive member of the community, and looking at how we use energy.


Being part of the solution

Mariner Suites is committed to a dedicated path of initiatives and procedures to ensure the best practice for our environment, our local community and the planet.



We make every effort to reduce our footprint and are looking for ways to actively adopt and participate in initiatives that lead to better sustainability and minimise our impact on the environment.

Heating and cooling demands are greatly reduced by having solid concrete block walls, being well-insulated and double-glazed. Bulk purchasing ensures plastic packaging is kept to a minimum and we focus strongly on reducing single-use plastics. Our pillows are made from sterilised recycled plastic bottles so 3316 bottles have been saved from landfills while paper-based Forest & Bird Eco Stick amenities have been chosen as they not only breakdown in landfills in under 10 years but a percentage of every purchase goes directly to Forest & Bird to support their invaluable work in protecting animals and wild places.



A commitment to engaging with and supporting the local community is essential to Mariner Suites

We support local businesses wherever possible with suppliers who embrace sustainable practices being actively sought as partners. When our towels and bathrobes are considered no longer suitable for guest use, but still in very good condition, they will be given away within the community. Mariner Suites contributes to fundraising efforts for local schools, organisations and charities and we loved working with our children’s school Enviro Group from who we purchased many of the grasses planted on our bank.



Energy conservation, recycling and commitment to new technologies are all essential to the sustainability philosophy at Mariner Suites.

Recyclable materials are sorted, while batteries, printer cartridges and coffee pods are all recycled. In anticipation of electric cars being in much wider use in the future Mariner Suites has EV plugs in place. Energy efficient LED lights have been used throughout with daylight sensors and timers working to reduce energy use further. We do our own laundry in house, with the exception of sheets & pillowcases and all of our appliances are purchased with their energy efficiency rating as an important element in the selection process. We have also installed an electric robotic lawn mower
