With Earth Day around the corner on April 22, travel companies offer sustainable travel experiences. Check out the latest from these sustainable hotel brands.
This boutique hotel in St. Barth commits to sustainability with new and expanded initiatives. The 44-room property recently introduced a zero-waste culinary concept at its beachfront restaurant AMIS. The hotel also expands its partnership with Coral Restoration St. Barth, offering interactive guided dives, starting this month.
This Jamaican, family-owned all-inclusive resort brand works with its charitable organization, Sandals Foundation, on a large-scale tree-planting event to combat food insecurity in the Caribbean. The Trees for Life event plans to plant more than 500 food-bearing trees across the Caribbean. Since the Sandals Foundation’s inception, 21,651 trees have been planted. More than 90 percent of the produce and poultry served at Sandals Resorts comes from local farms. Sandals Resorts also recently launched composting sites at select resorts to assist in sustainability goals.
The vacation club brand soon launches a Planting Seeds environmental education program. The new program introduces guests at WorldMark Portland Waterfront Park to the concept of urban permaculture through various workshops. Urban farming offers benefits from sustainability to fighting hunger. The on-site workshops are complimentary for all guests, and any produce will be donated to a local CSA.
After a stressful pre-holiday season and a busy work schedule, there was no better time for a relaxing spa experience than during my recent trip to Pasadena with the FXExpress Publications, Inc. team. We headed to The Langham Huntington, Pasadena for the 20th anniversary of the GT Tested Reader Survey awards, which meant a jam-packed trip, but I managed to carve a little time out of our busy schedule to visit Chuan Spa at the hotel.
Don’t risk losing all the money you’ve spent if you must cancel your trip at the last minute. Allianz Travel Insurance can give you:
You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
Incentive travel has long been a way for organizations to drive sales and reward employees with opulent trips to exotic destinations. Today it encompasses even more.
Copa Airlines unveiled its newest route to Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, offering passengers a seamless way to travel nonstop between the North Carolina region and Panama City, Panama (PTY). The service, beginning June 21, will operate four times weekly.
