In response to the rise in demand for transformative travel experiences, eco-resort brand, SALT Resorts (Mauritius), is connecting travellers with locals and places in a completely sustainable environment – basically offering immersive local experiences.
Its efforts were recognized as Brand of the Year at the Positive Luxury Awards, which celebrates companies that promote positive change through ethical business practices. The growing desire for real connections and genuine engagement with locals drives SALT’s Skills Swap platform – guests are encouraged to impart their personal skills and learn new skills from the Mauritians. More meaningful than a destination souvenir, the gift of acquiring skills in basket weaving, pottery, home-cooked Mauritian curry or line fishing makes for a lifetime of memories.
SALT’s sustainable initiatives also aim to inculcate meaningful consumption habits – by removing buffets from The Restaurant, they encourage guests to participate in zero food waste management.
In all guest interactions, the resort advocates sustainable living through re-using and up-cycling; reinforcing the ban of single-use plastics by providing all guests with aluminum refillable bottles and installation of Nordaq Fresh water taps throughout the resort.
