Sustainability & Giving Back

The environment around us

  • We are accredited Leaders in Sustainable Tourism and work closely to GTA to continue to improve what we do.
  • We are committed to a sustainable future and to improving the social, economic, and environmental well-being of our community, and the planet.
  • We are committed to working locally to celebrate the beauty of where we live, and harness this by supporting local produce, local businesses, and communities.
  • We are serious about a clean planet and reducing toxic waste; our housekeeping products are all biodegradable and contained in re-cycled bottles; all our guest amenities are locally produced, organically farmed, biodegradable, and recyclable.
  • We actively re-cycle and re-use, and we rarely waste.
  • Water is precious and we respect that every drop counts. We have a water harvesting plant that collects, filters and cleans water for re-use within our hotel operations.

The People we work with

  • We show our guests our appreciation for them by providing them with memorable
    experiences, and value for money. We deliver service which is professional, yet warm;
    informative yet not overbearing; efficient yet relaxed.
  • Our team is key to all that we do. We prioritize them; we are honest, we listen, and
    we value their input. We operate an employment environment of respect for all and
    encourage and support the growth and development of our employees.
  • We appreciate the hard work of our partners and suppliers and are committed
    to ensure that we work together to get the job done.

our outreach programme

In the belief that education is an important link to future success within our communities we have created an education support programme called ‘Ease the Journey’. This currently supports four education initiatives; Pre-School Teaching Assistance; a School Shoe Project: a Back to School Supplies & Surprise Project, and Professional Development for our team.

For each guest who stays, we contribute to the funds of Ease the Journey, and in turn, give the guest a beaded bracelet to remember the contribution they have made to local education by staying at The Living Journey Collection of Boutique Hotels.
