Other Sustainability Initiatives at La Residence

Apart from the wonderful community upliftment organisations La Residence supports, we are also committed to the following ongoing sustainability initiatives:

STIMULATING LOCAL BUSINESSES

  • We source the freshest kitchen ingredients from local suppliers of fruit, vegetables, baked goods and diary, freshwater salmon and trout, wines, and a variety of handmade chocolate treats. These suppliers are all local, small-scale operations that in turn support their immediate communities
  • We have an incredible array of local artists on display throughout the hotel.
  • We empower local entrepreneurs through outsourced services and suppliers.

PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT

  • We make use of geothermal heating in each of our Vineyard Suites for all heating and cooling purposes.
  • We use energy saving light bulbs
  • All showerheads have been replaced with certified water-saving attachments.
  • Only indigenous trees are planted, and removal of alien vegetation is an ongoing mission.
  • We have removed all plastic bottles and straws.
  • We have four bee hives in the estate which produce honey for guests and benefit the surrounding areas ecosystem.

TRAINING
