VIANA HOTEL AND SPA

June 2015

Viana Hotel and Spa, a member of the exclusive Small Luxury Hotels of the World and Long Island’s only green built feng shui hotel, is located in the heart of Long Island. Designed to provide a soothing environment, all spaces are inspired by the ancient art of feng shui paired with state-of-the-art technology, and imbued with a vibrant sense of joy and harmony.

As an eco-friendly, LEED green hotel, the Viana Hotel & Spa has made an unwavering commitment to sustainability with a number of eco-friendly initiatives in place.

The Viana Hotel and Spa has guest rooms that use computerized state-of-the-art occupancy sensors and lighting and comfort controls to both save energy and give guests the ability to adjust the climate in the room for their greatest comfort. The Viana’s 50 rooftop solar photovoltaic cell (PVC) panels produce an estimated 12,100 kWh a year, reducing fossil fuel consumption and, as a result, making the Viana’s carbon footprint delicately small.

State-of-the-art LED lighting is being used throughout the Viana’s Lobby and Restaurant. LED lighting reduces the lighting electric load by at least 60% compared to traditional T-12 fluorescent bulbs. The energy savings are even greater compared to incandescent bulbs and energy-hogging halogen bulbs. LED lighting lasts at least 10 times longer than florescent lighting. (No mercury is used in LEDs as there is in fluorescents. This makes LEDs much safer and probably the greenest form of electrical lighting around.)

The Kohler dual-flush toilets installed in the Viana guest rooms will use as little as 8/10 of a gallon of water: half the water as standard toilets, contributing to LEED certification through LEED WEc2; Water Use Reduction.

All carpet being used in the Viana is independently tested and certified as Green Label Plus carpet by the Carpet and Rug Institute, certifying it emits low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
