As a responsible organization, we want to make a positive difference to the people, the communities and the environment by following five core values. We achieve these values by actively:
From helping to protect and preserve our environments, to working closely with local communities and charities in some of our destinations, we have an ethical responsibility to look after the world around us.
By making these eco-friendly products, you'll be doing your own bit to help preserve our precious marine life, coral reefs and oceans.
We all have a responsibility to look after our environment, both on shore and at sea, not only for this generation, but for future generations to enjoy, and we actively encourage our crews and guests to help us to reduce our environmental footprint.
Our yacht and land-based crews have access to everything they need to ensure that we provide our guests with superior vacation experiences whilst making as little impact on the environment as possible.
Using a high concentration of chemicals has an enormously damaging effect on our oceans, reefs and marine life, so we maintain our yachts using a range of eco-friendly and non-toxic cleaning products.
We use some solar power whilst at sea, however, we turn off fans and lights when they’re not in use, and manage our systems so fuel is used to its optimum, ensuring that marine conservation is always on our mind.
We believe that we’ve found the right balance between minimizing the environmental impact of using air conditioning and giving you an exceptional level of comfort onboard. We also encourage our guests to open hatches from time to time and feel the sea breeze!
We opt to use reusable bottles and containers, which saves the environment from thousands of plastic water bottles that sadly make their way into our oceans each year. We also shop consciously and choose recyclable materials.
Our menus are planned in advance, and use the freshest produce available to ensure minimum food waste. Reusable food containers are used instead of plastic wrap and aluminum foil.
From training our staff and crews to live and charter green, to collaborating with yacht builders who share our passion to be environmentally friendly, we strive to live by our promise to look after and respect our environment.
Forming part of our AQUA·TERRA Collection, Mandala an eco-resort on Fetoko Island in Tonga, and the TRIBU VILLAS on the island of Mayreau, in St Vincent and the Grenadines are shining examples of environmental sustainability, as each property has been lovingly designed to complement its natural, tropical surroundings. Mandala, in particular, used sustainable materials to thoughtfully construct handcrafted treehouses and bungalows with living roofs to highlight the island’s natural beauty.
