The Secret Retreats Annual Campaign

THE MISOOL FOUNDATION

At Secret Retreats we believe in responsible, sustainable tourism. We encourage and support our hoteliers’ sustainable and responsible tourism actions and focus on one foundation or key action per year in order to raise as much awareness as possible. This year’s foundation partner for our annual campaign is the Misool Foundation who from their home in Raja Ampat, Indonesia have been successfully promoting sustainable tourism and community-based environmental conservation to create an action that we believe will be sustainable, long term and will benefit generations to come. They are doing incredible work but with a marine park of reefs and islands of over 300,000acres to protect, they do need all the help they can get to continue their work.

Every booking made through Secret Retreats’ website or with the Secret Retreats Concierge will directly benefit the foundation with 2USD donated by Secret Retreats for every night booked. Thank-you for your support of this vitally important work and please click here hyperlink to https://www.misoolfoundation.org to learn more and to perhaps make your own donation to the Misool Foundation.

Book your Asian adventure, cruise in Asia or holiday or vacation in Asia and support the Misool Foundation here.

Our Members Own Actions and Initiatives

4リバーズ・フローティング・ロッジ

エコ・フレンドリーな建材のみで建てられた、4リバーズ・フローティング・ロッジは、タタイ川とカルダモン山脈に囲まれた中にあります。そうした立地にあるからこそ、企業としての環境保護への取り組みはもちろん、現地の持続的観光のための努力にも積極的に支援しています。たくさんの地元組織や村人たちと共に、この地ならではのエコシステムの保護を推進しています。過去数年では、ロッジのスタッフと村の人々で、絶滅危惧種のテナガザルを含むいくつかの野生の鳥や動物が地元熱帯雨林に戻ってきたことを確認しています。リゾートによる環境保護への取り組みが功を奏したものと考えられます。
