2004 World Legacy Travel Award

Casuarina Beach Club

Local hotel ranks best in the world in sustainable tourism

Web Posted - Fri Jun 11 2004
One of this country’s hotels has won the 2004 World Legacy Travel Award in the General Hotels and Resorts category. It is the Casuarina Hotel at Dover, Christ Church.
The awards are a joint effort by National Geographic Traveler magazine and Conservation International, aimed at increasing awareness of sustainable tourism’s benefits and to recognise those who practice it well.

A statement from the organisers about Casuarina, states “No two rooms are decorated alike in the resort, which supports local artisans and educates its guests about how to conserve the local environment. Or as one manager put it, ‘Reduce, reuse, recycle and rethink!”

Jonathan Tourtellot, geotourism editor of National Geographic Traveler and co-creator of the World Legacy Awards said “We want to reward the people who are doing trailblazing work in forging mutually beneficial relationships between tourism and the destinations on which tourism depends.”

He added, “We want to put a spotlight on these awardees not only because they deserve it, but because we hope others will emulate them.”

The finalists were inspected on-site, a unique feature of the World Legacy programme. Reports from on-site inspectors were sent to a panel of judges who selected the winners.

The other categories were – Nature Travel, Heritage Tourism, and Destination Stewardship.
