Planet Earth, forever our Muse

“Nature does not hurry yet everything is accomplished.” —Lao Tzu

Close your eyes and cast your mind back to a transformative moment during your travels; finally arriving at a natural place, encountering a wild creature, gazing across a stunning landscape that rendered you speechless … and relive the sensation that reinforced the awestruck wonder. Recognising these unique moments are the cornerstone of our humanity, for the more passionate and interdependent we feel towards our planet, the more driven we are to nurture and protect it from harm. By harnessing the power of good people, conscious action, honest travel and positive change, the sum of these values strengthens our human evolution. We simply cannot whittle down our respect for the Earth to one day – she must be celebrated and nourished daily.

Here, we shine a spotlight on inspiring luxury hotel brands who go above and beyond to tread lightly and demonstrate a sustainable impact, sharing a focus on one of many key initiatives.

Soneva

Read through the A-Z’s of Soneva’s Sustainability list, and it’s clear they put their money where their mouth is. With their uniquely Biophilic design – “meaning a deep love and craving for nature, [while] reaping the rewards of being immersed in the wilderness.” – and ongoing restoration projects, this is one brand to watch.

Soneva Jani has perfected ‘castaway chic’ in the Maldives, and with access to some of the most pristine waters in the Noonu Atoll, their Marine Biologists play an active role in marine conservation efforts. Join the Marine Conservation Expedition to work alongside them, where guests take part in a beach cleanup to help gather vital data through conducting micro-plastic and coral bleaching surveys.

Virtuoso travelers receive:

  • Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability
  • Daily full breakfast for up to two guests per bedroom (already included in property rates), served in the hotel restaurant
  • $100USD equivalent in local currency Resort or Hotel credit utilized during stay (not combinable, not valid on room rate, no cash value if not redeemed in full)
  • Early Check-In / Late Check-Out, subject to availability
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi

Six Senses

 

Since its inception in 1995, Six Senses has built a brand reputation that is synonymous with barefoot luxury, a zero waste philosophy, digital detoxing and always plucking from its own organic gardens. Earth Lab displays their consumption data as well as communicating work around marine conservation, forestry or farming initiatives, and harnessing renewable energy from solar or biomass.

Six Senses Ibiza fights plastic pollution by supporting Pachamama Beach through micro-plastic beach cleanups on land, and iBi Foundation, who runs a solar-powered catamaran dedicated to the same cause at sea. Using an integrated collecting net to retrieve plastics floating on the surface of the ocean, in 2022, 1.552 kilograms of plastic was removed from the coast!

1 Hotels

 

With all properties LEED Certified, advocating huge carbon offsets, and donations that have exceeded half a million dollars towards their charitable partners, 1 Hotels harmonises with the natural environment while tracking their progress through energy-tracking smart technology. On track to reach their goal towards 90% waste diversion from landfills by 2026, this ensures a future vision “where ‘away’ does not exist – where materials are repurposed, products are reimagined and food renourishes the earth.”

At 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay on biodiverse Kaua’i, spot 144.6 tons of salvaged materials around their island oasis which has been transformed into unlikely art pieces and furniture inspired by the surroundings. Touches of reclaimed Teak Joists and Puka lava stone can be found, and the mindful design of this sanctuary celebrates the natural world through its green roof, native plant species, rainwater harvesting system, and regional cuisine.

Virtuoso travelers receive:

  • Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability
    Daily Buffet breakfast for up to two guests per bedroom, served in the restaurant
    $100 USD equivalent Hotel Credit, applicable towards our Food & Beverage outlets or towards Spa Services, to be utilized during stay (not combinable, not valid on room rate, no cash value if not redeemed in full)

For the past three decades, Singita has taken every intentional step towards reducing their ecological footprint across their bewitching African lodges. By purposefully preserving wildlife and improving the lives of those around them, the essence of stewardship is felt when you become part of their family. Rest assured that your carbon offset levy is part of the package, with energy efficient systems to make your stay all the more guilt-free.

Community takes centre stage at Singita, whether it’s through running heartfelt programs within their lodge neighbourhoods, championing local artists through their design elements, or revealing language, arts and dance with the experience on the ground. Enforcing their sustainability partner Bioregional’s One Planet Living principles and framework allows them to ‘achieve their vision of a brighter, better future.

Complimentary Wi-Fi

Shinta Mani

Inspired to give back to the Khmer people of Cambodia, Shinta Mani Foundation which ‘Opens Doors, Opens Hearts,’ has shared a large percentage of their revenue to important wildlife and community initiatives. While some hotels pay lip service to community and environmental support, they go the extra mile by digging water wells, building school infrastructure, donating study materials and supplying food parcels.

With the Wildlife Alliance on their side, the figures speak for themselves. To share just a few of their successes, they have removed 14777 snares and 1999 bird nets, confiscated 10786 M2 of illegal wood and 685 chainsaws, and released 97 turtles and 1 sun bear. There is a commitment towards permanently ending poaching and logging in the Cardamom rainforest, as well as reintroducing wild tigers into the ecosystem.

Our Habitas

=

The Habitas ethos is built upon ‘immersive spaces that deepen our awareness,’ to ‘educate and inspire, while holding transparency in high regard,’ and fulfilling the UN’s Sustainability Development Goals for 2030. They construct with minimal environmental impact, have eliminated single-use plastics, and have an impressive portfolio of global initiatives funded by Our Habitas RISE which addresses social and environmental issues.

For the Escapists and seekers of exotic destinations looking for something unusual, landing in Our Habitas Atacama, Chile is the closest alien landscape resembling Space on Earth. Here, silence and desolation reign supreme across its deserts and mountains – a place to fully switch off, bury yourself in ‘the stillness and clarity that arises from life’s simplicity,’ and connect deeply with Nature through the Habitas spirit.

Embrace the Slow Life

Ah, getting away from it all – there’s nothing like it. But what if you really need to slow down life’s rollercoaster, step off, and spend a week or two gently unwinding. Welcome to our pick of slow-living ideas that will make you really appreciate the natural world at its most alluring.

Amangiri, Utah, USA

The super-luxury and soul-soothing silence at Amangiri at Canyon Point, Utah is something special. People who know about the 900 acres of vastness go there to be – and to feel – remote, and with the eerie beauty of the Utah/Arizona terrain for miles and miles all around, this wilderness feels nothing short of humbling. Its crisp edges of polished rock are redolent of Native American architecture. The fantastic centrepiece pool curves around a rock formation, and the Aman Spa has all you need to empty your mind – the same for being able to view the desert from most beds or baths. The modernist suites offer an inspiring welcome to this most dramatically secluded setting.

Virtuoso travelers receive:

  • Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability
  • Daily continental breakfast for two guests per bedroom, served in restaurant
  • $100 USD equivalent Resort or Hotel credit to be utilized during stay (not combinable, not valid on room rate, no cash value if not redeemed in full, to be applied towards incidentals excluding alcohol & boutique)
  • Early Check-In / Late Check-Out, subject to availability
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi

Son Bunyola, Mallorca

Richard Branson’s latest dreamscape, Son Bunyola, is worth the splurge. Three spacious, traditional Balearic villas (one has five bedrooms, the others four) lie sprawled across 680 acres on Mallorca’s northwest coast. Each has its own heated pool, sleek kitchen, and courtyard with dining area, although Son Balagueret – housing a bedroom in the original 13th-century turret – has its own magic. The lush estate includes vineyards, olive groves, and citrus orchards; you can walk to the beach, hike and bike on miles of mountain trails, or play some of the island’s almost two dozen golf courses.

Virtuoso travelers receive:

  • Daily Continental Breakfast for up to two guests per bedroom, served on the Terrace of each Villa
  • For all-inclusive bookings only: A complimentary cooking class with a private chef for the entire party

NIHI Sumba, Indonesia

There are fewer than 30 uniquely designed villas here but every single one has a captivating Indian Ocean view, and this beautiful place is further lit up by the smiling welcome you’ll receive from the Sumbanese people who look after it on behalf of the owners. Something you can do here that takes you right away from everyday stresses and strains is swimming with Sumba’s horses, and after that exhilaration then it’s time to explore the Nihioka, a truly blissful spa. We can also recommend stand-up paddling through slow-moving local rivers as they wind past sultry Sumba villages and hidden local waterfalls. It’s as surreally relaxing as it sounds. Indeed, the resident team can devise an itinerary for you with all sorts of serene experiences, from bird-watching to immersion in the ancient heritage of the Marapu people along what was once a remote and secret beach.

Virtuoso travelers receive:

Annandale, New Zealand

On Banks Peninsula, clinging to the edge of New Zealand’s South Island, are the four distinctive villas created by the Annandale farm; it almost defines getting away from it all. Despite the stunning coastline and breathtaking views of the glittering Pacific Ocean, you’re on a working 4000-acre farm where the large grazing herds of Angus cattle and Romney sheep dot the landscape of rocky outcrops and wind-blown tussock grass. We absolutely love the old fashioned veranda of the restored 19th century Homestead, which can sleep up to 12, and has its own heated pool and even a private tennis court. There’s also masses to enjoy outside, including mountain-biking, kayaking, hiking, cooking classes and nature cruises.

andBeyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge, Namibia

This is the only private reserve in the Sossusvlei area featuring the dunes of Namibia on the world’s oldest living desert, so when you’re in the lodge you’re at the centre of 31,000 acres of pristine nothingness. The utter tranquility and extraordinary quality of light makes this area magical by day while at night the sky is so clear – it’s near an internationally recognised Dark Sky Reserve – that the stargazing through a powerful Celestron telescope in the Observatory will keep you up til dawn. The accommodation is all about sustainable luxury: 10 beautifully appointed stone-and-glass suites offer shaded verandas, private plunge pools, and large retractable skylights above the beds. Other signature features include a sunrise-view gym and sunset-facing wellness centre.

Titilaka, Peru

At an altitude of 3800 metres above sea level, the air on the shores of Lake Titicaca where Titilaka Lodge is tucked away is crisp and wholesome. It will leave you thoroughly refreshed while exploring this dramatic and enormous stretch of water. There’s island-hopping on the lake itself, excursions from the boathouse on the peninsula, unforgettable birdwatching, and Sillustani – the large and important pre-Hispanic funeral ground and archaeological complex where Peru and Bolivia come together in the Andes. The rooms, each with a splendid lake view, are contemporary and sumptuous. Almost all the lovely staff are locals, and the fare is delicious, seasonal and satisfying. You’ll have amazing days and sleep like a log…
