Sophistication and Sustainability for Luxury Travelers
Traveling to discover new worlds and have authentically local experiences, with the least environmental impact, are key components that define the contemporary luxury traveler. Fairmont Mayakoba, host of the first edition of ILTM Americas, offers participants of the world’s leading luxury travel expo the possibility of discovering innovative and responsible tourism practices.
Since opening in 2006, Fairmont Mayakoba has been committed to environmental care and sustainability bringing to reality the harmonious equilibrium between luxury and nature. Its construction contemplated the use of recycled and sustainable materials whenever possible, the relocation of more than 10,000 plants and a commitment to implement actions to conserve the natural resources, support the development of local communities and encourage guests to actively participate in the conservation of the environment while providing facilities and premium experiences in a majestic setting surrounded by mangroves, rainforest, water canals and the spectacular turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean.
“Sustainability includes not only environmental management but also socio-cultural aspects and economic benefits to local communities” mentioned Ian L. Robinson, Regional Vice President and General Manager of Fairmont Mayakoba. “In our commitment to promote responsible tourism, we are pleased to participate in ILTM, Americas and share luxury experiences in harmony with nature and, our knowledge to a real sustainable tourism with unique services with true value for the sophisticated traveler”.
Guests attending ILTM Americans can participate in sustainable practices even before their arrival to the Riviera Maya. The hotel invites all guests to help underprivileged children by supporting Pack for a Purpose program, in which the empty space left in their luggage can be used to bring a donation for the community centers of Save the Children in Playa del Carmen.
