MÖVENPICK made a Statement regarding an article about sales of ivory in their hotels…Please, read, it is important!


I didn´t controlled  this message, so it is my duty, to publish the comment of MÖVENPICK: And as I could see, it´s a serious Focus for MÖVENPICK

I excuse me, I feel very sorry –

“Statement from Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts regarding an article about the sales of ivory in our hotels.

Wild Travel Magazine, specifically its online outlet wildlifeextra.com, has published an article asserting that the Anwar Al Madinah Mövenpick Hotel is selling ivory on its premises.

This accusation is incorrect. In fact, the video shown has been filmed in an independent shopping mall which is partly merging into the hotel building, partly separate. The mall and all shops are not managed by us, nor are we responsible for or involved in the lease of any shops.

The management of the hotel is not in any way related to this incident. However, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts takes this very seriously, since sustainable practices are at the heart of our business. Our hotel management have taken immediate initiative and spoken to the shopping mall management. The management has promised to investigate further and will approach the shop owners. We will continue to monitor the situation and express our concerns with all involved to push for an appropriate resolution.”
