The entire Vega concept was born from the desire to redefine the quality of hotel services on the Romanian coast and at the same time offer its guests a unique experience. After extensive renovation and modernization of the hotel structure, which had been built in the early 1970s, Vega was reopened in the summer of 2008 and awarded 5 stars.
The same year, the Vega Hotel beach obtained the Blue Flag certification, the only beach in Romania with this distinction since 2007. Blue Flag is a prestigious certificate ensuring international recognition of the quality of the beach and represents an important guarantee for tourists that the beach they visit is among the best in the world. Blue Flag is also an ecological label for the sustainable beaches of the world, obtained year after year with strict criteria on water quality, beach quality, environmental management, public safety and information.
With sustained efforts and matching investments, in the summer of 2009, Vega Hotel became the first Romanian hotel to receive Eco-Hotel Management System certification from Tuv-Rheinland Romania. Implementation of the environmental management system includes: the appointment of an Eco-Manager, management of the consumption resulting from the hotel’s activity, employee training and awareness and, not least, promotion of the Eco-Hotel Management System policy to the hotel guests.
The Eco-Hotel principles govern all processes within Vega Hotel by means of:
- controlling energy consumption: in March 2013 the Vega Hotel became the first hotel in Romania to use renewable energy (energy derived exclusively from renewable sources – wind, hydro and solar energy, significantly helping to reduce CO2 emissions). The company supplying us with this type of energy is UGM Energy.
- controlling the water and paper consumption and controlling the waste management and hazardous substances
- purchasing and using biodegradable products
Besides the minimal impact on the environment, the Eco-Hotel system guarantees that guests’ and employees’ health is protected to the maximum. In this sense, we are committed to providing the necessary organizational structure and resources.
Following recognition of these merits, Vega was very soon counted among the elite hotels in Romania. Only a few steps from the sea, on the largest private beach in Mamaia, the Vega Hotel redefines luxury in Mamaia with a design based on classic Feng Shui elements and a unique atmosphere that combines relaxation with entertainment.
