SUSTAINABILITY
Many of Cayuga’s hotels occupy remote Rainforest locations. That’s why Cayuga makes it a priority to preserve the natural surroundings, protecting thousands of acres of endangered tropical rainforest. the shores of the Marino Ballena National Park are some of the cleanest in all of southern Costa Rica. So much so that they’ve been awarded the national Ecological Blue Flag award in recognition. Kura supports local entities that have been set up to make sure our beaches hold onto this accolade. Plus, Kure uses fully biodegradable products that do not contain hazardous chemicals so they won’t adversely affect the local ecosystems or the community.
Cayuga Collection hires 100% of its employees from the local area. Providing professional growth, offering ongoing training, promoting internally, and fueling the team’s desire to grow! Caluga won the 2018 People Award by the World Travel & Tourism Council, Tourism for Tomorrow Awards, for their commitment to improving career opportunities in the locations they operate. To keep sustainable innovation, Cayuga created an Innovation Contest to tap into the collective knowledge of their 400+ employees. Taking sustainable luxury even further at the Cayuga Collection. Kura fully believes that the concept of “local” is key to sustainable hospitality. That’s why they hire local and buy local, and make sure that our community and natural surroundings are well taken care of.
Cayuga Collection believes that the concept of “local” is essential to sustainable tourism. That’s why they hire locals, buy local, and invest in the well-being of the community and natural surroundings. Making a conscious effort to source as many products as close to home as possible. Therefore, all Cayuga’s Collection mini bars are stocked with only local drinks and snacks. Their Spa products and bathroom amenities are 100% national. The gift shops offer a variety of products handmade by local artisans.  To support the local economy even more, much of the furniture and art is also locally produced. Creating an authentic sense of place for the guests. Kura works with a non-profit organization to support a school in Uvita. Through the generous donations of their guests, they have been able to fund infrastructure projects such as building new classrooms, as well as provide teaching materials and essential school supplies.

Cayuga collection thrives to offer the ultimate eco-luxury experience, teaching guests to be more conscious and responsible,  so it’s fully recommended for guests to turn off & unplug everything in their rooms while they are out for the day.

 

Kura works hard to keep their carbon emissions as low as possible by using solar technology to heat water for the guest suites and staff rooms. If it happens to be cloudy, Kura has energy-saving auxiliary water heaters as a Plan B.

The solar panels just under the pool are also hard at work. They feed into two batteries which we use during power outages at the resort.

A smart solution to irrigating their lush hotel grounds. For many months of the year, the grounds of Cayuga’s rainforest properties become bone dry and need to be watered. To ease the demand for freshwater, Cayuga’s hotels and lodges put their wastewater to good use by purifying it onsite through a special biological system, making it completely safe and suitable for irrigating their gardens. Their drip irrigation systems then make sure that not a single drop is wasted. Instead of chlorine, Kura’s infinity pool employs a special chemical and filter system that uses salt to keep the waters clean. That means if you swim in that pool you won’t be exposed to any harsh chemicals. Only glorious sunshine and mind-blowing views.

Four rules Cayuga Collection lives by: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse & Recycle
Cayuga Collection banished all single-use plastics from all their hotels. These products take a vast quantity of fossil fuels to produce and are non-biodegradable, and can’t be recycled either. Instead, Cayuga replaced all single-use plastic straws with locally-made bamboo, and other biodegradable products that are compostable, which helps reduce the amount of non-recyclable waste.
