Waldorf Astoria is phasing out annoying plastic card keys

Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah is the first property in the UAE to introduce the implementation of RFID-enabled room keys made entirely from wood in line with the Hilton Hotel Group’s commitment to double its social impact investment and cut its environmental impact in half by 2030.


Bold.


This initiative joins the steps already taken by Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah phase-out plastic with the FSC-certified wooden room keys designed to reduce the amount of plastic waste as they replace 20,000 plastic keys that are used annually at the property, taking further steps towards the eradication of plastic.

There’s also a great initive in the works for golf-loving guests who can also practice their swing whilst helping to promote Ras Al Khamiah’s marine life; they can hit ‘eco golf balls’ – made of biodegradable ingredients which dissolve into fish food – into the sea. Available daily, the ‘eco golf balls’ can be purchased for AED 15.
