Earth Month may be over, but that doesn’t mean you should stop considering sustainable travel practices. Marriott International’s resorts across the world offer a commitment to sustainability. Check out these eco-conscious Marriott properties in the Caribbean, Costa Rica and Brazil.

Costa Rica Marriott Hotel Hacienda Belen and Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort

These sister properties are part of Marriott’s Serve 360 program. The initiative follows four pillars: nurturing the world, having sustainably responsible operations, empowerment through opportunities and the philosophy of welcoming everyone, along with the promotion of human rights. The properties offer education and career opportunities to the local communities, including a trade skill training program for vulnerable youth ages 15–24, a hotel training program for individuals with disabilities and training programs for women.

Renaissance São Paulo Hotel

The São Paulo property boasts a successful recycling program, aimed at reducing food waste. The hotel is home to a food bio-digester, which separates organic waste from non-reusable materials, thus maximizing compostable materials.

St. Kitts Marriott Resort & The Royal Beach Casino

The property commits to lowering its footprint on St. Kitts by repurposing a common type of seaweed found on the island. The resort partners with the Ocean Foundation and a local farm to collect and redistribute the invasive seaweed as a fertilizer around the property and on the farm.

The Zero Waste program promotes converting solid waste into products. Pack for Purpose encourages guests to pack supplies for the local communities in their luggage to deliver when they arrive.

Hotel Montalembert Review

When my daughter, Sharon, traveled to Paris in 2020, a month before the COVID-19 pandemic, she met her friend whose travel agent booked them at Hotel Montalembert. I recognized the name as one of Anne Jousse’s B. Signature Hotels & Resorts Group because I had stayed at its sister property, Hotel Bel Ami, in 2018. That’s where the hands-on, greet-guests-by-name Laurence Guinebretière, general manager of both hotels, (she commutes between the two on foot in about 10 minutes) had described its chic appeal. Sharon concurred. So, the Rive Gauche hotel was high on my list of “must-stays” during my fall 2021 trip to Paris.

Choose São Paulo for Stylish Meetings and Events

Rio de Janeiro, with its mountain- rimmed beaches and balmy weather, might be Brazil’s most iconic city, but São Paulo — or Sampa, as locals affectionately call it — rivals as the economic and cultural capital of South America’s largest country. Justifiably compared to New York, the sprawling metropolis of 12.5 million inhabitants boasts some of the Southern Hemisphere’s best dining, museums and entertainment. From Michelin- starred restaurants to legendary nightclubs that roar until the late morning to exquisite art galleries like MASP, São Paulo exudes endless sophistication and excitement. Cosmopolitan and welcoming, Paulistas (São Paulo locals) speak English well and love to share their hometown’s charms with visitors. As Latin America’s most important financial hub, the city naturally attracts meeting planners with first-rate MICE amenities including convention centers, business hotels and trade show venues.
