Sustainability is a central corporate value for us. Therefore, topics such as environmental protection, water recycling, waste avoidance and optimized energy use are of great importance for our actions. Therefore, in Punta Skala we have implemented a complex system together with international experts that minimizes our "ecological footprint" in the long term. A water treatment plant supplies the water needed for daily use on the vacation peninsula and generates energy for heating and cooling. In addition, a fully biological purification system ensures that our environment is treated with care.
At our Zadar resort we are dedicated to sustainability and going greener every year. From cutting down on food waste and recycling to the usage of desalinated seawater in our spa zone and gardens, Falkensteiner Punta Skala resort also encourages its guests to be mindful of their water and towel usage.
Let's take care of our planet together.
Water pump. Seawater is pumped from the sea into the plant at a constant temperature.
Energy generation. The sea water is used for cooling (summer) or heating (winter) the hotels and the apartment complex. This reduces the need for fossil fuels.
Desalination system. Part of the seawater is desalinated using an osmosis system and can be used as drinking water. The remaining water is discharged back into the sea.
Purification system. The waste water is purified by a fully biological sewage plant and stored with the collected rain and rinse water from the bathing facilities. The recycled water is used for toilet flushing and for watering the gardens.
Security is also a topic that is very important to Falkensteiner. Punta Skala is a gated resort with 24-hour security. The resort is car-free except for arrival and departure. We therefore ask you to use the central underground car park and not to leave your car alongside the streets or in front of the hotels.

In the resort, great emphasis is placed on correct waste separation. For this purpose, plastic, paper and organic waste are disposed in separate containers. In addition, plastic plates, cutlery, bottles and cups have been replaced by reusable materials.
