Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
1. Waste: As much as possible we eliminate the use of disposable plates, cups, and utensils. Where we must use disposable plates and cups, we try to use those made of paper instead of plastic.

2. Water: We educate our guests about ways of saving water: we post discreet signs reminding them to shut off faucets when not in use, and inviting our guests to accept towel and linen changes less often. Reduced water consumption directly reduces the amount of wastewater generated by our hotels

3. Energy: We encourage the use of fans as the acclimatization devices with the lowest energy consumption and ask to not leave them on unnecessarily. Air conditioning equipment is accountable for some of the highest energy consumption, and we ask our guests to keep their room doors and windows closed while the air conditioning unit is on, and to turn it off when leaving the room. One degree variation in the comfort zone, which is 22°C-27°C, entails a 6% difference in power consumption. A reduction in acclimatization consumption, however, should not affect service quality.

4. Transport: The benefits of cycling are not just for the cyclist, they also help enhance the environment. Cycling helps reduce carbon emissions and also reduces pollutants in the air which are a threat to health. Cycling helps reduce noise and pollution, reduces traffic congestion and helps protect green spaces, monuments, and building from the adverse effects of pollution
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

1. Friends and Neighbours: Social commitment has a firm place in our company culture and we regard it as our contribution to the sustainable development of society while helping communities to preserve heritage and culture.
Our itinerary in Udaipur includes a visit to Shilpgram, a rural arts and crafts complex that depicts the lifestyles of the folk and tribal people of the region. With an objective of increasing awareness and knowledge about the rural arts and crafts, the Shilpgram provides an opportunity to rural and urban artists to come together and interact through the process of workshops, as well as showcase their products.

On our way to Jodhpur, we provide an opportunity to visit the Bishnoi Village. Bishnoi's are particularly keen to protect nature, especially plants and animal species, and to completely abolish the practice of hurting the environment. This is also the place where we can see how the weavers work together to create the “magic carpets”, locally referred as “durry”.

2. A Fair Deal: All the services provided to guests, such as transport, guide services, and services related to catering and accommodation are provided by local staff. Our tours include visits to local communities and countryside not traditionally on the tourist routes. This provides an opportunity for the creation of widespread economic and social benefits for local communities living on the route.
