Local hotel ranks best in the world in sustainable tourism
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.
