In all aspects of human existence, sustainability is a worldwide requirement. A sustainable approach to a pleasant environment is required in all sectors of human activity, including hotel amenities and services. The goal of this study was to analyze sustainable green practices in hotels in order to raise hotel managers' and tourists' knowledge of green practices for sustainable hotel amenities and tourism growth. The data for this study was collected using a structured questionnaire administered using purposive sampling. Each of the 20 hotels selected for this study received eleven (11) questionnaires, one for hotel managers and ten for guests, totaling 220 questionnaires. Descriptive and inferential statistical tests were used to examine the data. In several hotels, visitors' awareness of green measures was assessed. Out of the twenty-two (22) mentioned sustainable green facilities, five (5) variables generated the highest mean between (1.80) and (2.90).This indicates that guest awareness of green practices in the hotel is limited to energy-saving bulbs (2.90), low-flow water in the bathroom and toilet, reusable plastics, towels, cutlery, and bedding (2.70), eco-friendly retail (e-commerce or transact) (2.80), repair and refurbishment (1.80), and purchase of local or indigenous food in the hotel kitchen (2.30).The Chi-Square test revealed a significant connection (P = 0.000) between preference for green practices and hotel awareness of green practices. However, there is a substantial link between respondents' preference for green activities and their age (P = 0.000), marital status (P = 0.000), and degree of education (P = 0.000).To maintain a sustainable environment and protection of our natural resources, the research advises that sustainable green practices be incorporated into our society as our mother tongue, expanded into hotel facilities, and utilized as a standard for hotel licensing.
