Sustainability is fast becoming a prime concern for public and private sectors alike and the hotel industry is no exception. Nexus Resort & Spa Karambunai is instrumental in playing its part in promoting sustainability in its operations.

What began with as small efforts to reduce waste – such as reusable linens, electronic flyers – evolved to include efforts that mirror the three pillars of sustainable development. We at Nexus Resort & Spa Karambunai has undertaken the following as their Sustainability Projects.

  1. Organic Garden and Herbs Garden - As an effective way to reduce carbon footprint, farm-to-table dining has become a key feature that priorities sustainability.

  2. Water Harvesting - This project was conceptualized late last year and implemented for landscaping upkeep.

  3. Preservation of Natural Habitat - The resort believes in preserving the natural habitat for animals such as monitor lizards, squirrels, hornbill, various bird species, etc.

  4. The Green Finger Program - Edutainment of the importance of sustainability and preserving the environment as recycled materials are used to encourage kids at the Nexie Kids Club in their art and craft session. Also the usage of Coffee Grounds as Natural Fertiliser - Usage of recycle coffee grounds as fertilisers.

  5. Introduction of the Mangrove Sunset Cruise as an activity for guests - Guests, who that embark on the mangrove sunset cruise along Mengkabong River, enjoy amazing scenery and learn how the various flora, fauna and the uniquely adapted mangrove trees develop a complex symbiotic eco-system. Other natural phenomena to watch out for are the fireflies that congregate in the mangrove trees.

Nexus Beach Run

Nexus Resort & Spa Karambunai’s annual signature event – The Nexus Beach Run was conceptualised in 2016. It aimed to promote fitness in a healthy outdoor environment while supporting the less privileged in the community.

This fun race provides an excellent opportunity for participants to get active and challenge themselves while supporting local charities. Each participant is given a race pack that includes a t-shirt, medal, wristband, and a drawstring bag. Proceeds from the event will be donated to 3 homes chosen based on their dire need of funds.

The Nexus Beach Run is open to novice and elite runners. The 12km and 6km fun run courses cover a combination of running on the beach and on the road within the beach resort. As per previous years, the after party is the epitome of a race that is jam packed with awesome fun-filled activities, performances, and lucky draw prizes.
