Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino takes pride in being one of the Queen City’s non-smoking hotel. This movement was pursued officially on December 15,2015 in support of City Ordinance 2241 or the “Comprehensive Anti-Smoking Ordinance.”
Waterfront, known as one of Cebu City’s premium hotels, pushed this movement not only to be at par with the international hotel standard of having designated smoking areas, but because the management truly believes in the benefits it can do not only to the guests and the establishment, but to the community and the environment as well.
“This will definitely reduce the risk of fire. And for guests both external and internal, it is a fact that smoking is compromising the health and safety of the public especially to those whose immune systems are less resistant (to smoke),” Mr. Rex Yap, Waterfront Rooms Division Director expressed.
“As a hotel that strives for the clean and green movement, implementing this would greatly help the environment as it minimizes the ill effects it poses to the environment such as the emission of harmful chemicals to the ozone layer which contributes to its depletion. We also believe that through this, we are saving the lives of smokers and secondhand smokers,” Waterfront Marketing Communications Manager Arnel Aparis added.
