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 ingredients from local suppliers of fruit, vegetables, baked goods, dairy, 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. Removal of alien vegetation is an ongoing mission.
  • We have removed all plastic bottles and straws where possible.
  • We have four beehives in the estate which produce honey for our guests while benefiting the surrounding ecosystem.

TRAINING

  • We provide training and internship programmes for students from local colleges and academies.
  • We provide the venue for class presentations.

STAFF TRAINING & WELFARE

  • We provide continuous training for staff members through various health & safety, first aid, fire safety, inter-department, inter-company, study assistance, business coaching, and purpose & value initiatives.
  • We provide access for staff members to have an annual health check-up and contribute to every staff members’ Medical Aid.
