Traveling fuels our wanderlusting souls. Whether it’s a quick getaway to San Francisco or an international affair, we’re always looking for the latest and greatest spots to visit. And if we can give back while doing so, then we’ve truly hit the jet set jackpot. Yes, it’s true. You can do good all while soaking up rays (with a margarita in hand) by the infinity pool. (How’s that for multi-tasking.)
Before you plan your next trip, check out these hotels and resorts that give back to those in need (and stray animals, too!). Just think, you’ll never feel guilty about spending your hard earned money on traveling again!
Omni Hotels & Resorts just launched a do-good campaign called Say Goodnight to Hunger. With every stay booked directly on OmniHotels.com, the brand will donate a portion of proceeds to Feeding America to provide an entire family of four dinner for a whole week. What this means for you? There are literally gorgeous properties all across the country (their stunning Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort included!), as well as in Mexico and Canada, so the options are endless.
So before you book lodging for your next trip, check out their long list of destinations. Whether in Orlando (only 8 miles away from Disney World!) or in a major city, you’ll rest peacefully knowing that you’re in the lap of luxury and feeding a family in need!
For the ultimate beach vacation that gives back, book a stay at Playa Viva. This gorgeous (and eco-friendly) getaway is nestled on the western coast of Mexico in between the Pacific Ocean and the stunning Sierra Madre Mountains. While you’re enjoying some serious fun in the sun, you can also dedicate some of your time to the turtles. Guests can collect turtle eggs and help baby turtles find their way back to the ocean. Just think about all the cool Instagram shots to be had.
San Francisco is one of our favorite close-to-home escapes, and for many good reasons. The Ritz-Carlton hotel in Nob Hill being one of them. In addition to offering stunning city views, unmatched service, and top of the line amenities, the property also donates unclaimed lost and found garments to The Salvation Army to give back to those in need. Plus, they send leftover soap to Clean the World, where it’s recycled and distributed to underprivileged people around the word to help prevent illness and disease.
Calling all animal lovers, this hip resort is everything you’ve ever dreamed of. The Temple Tree at Bon Ton on Langkawi, Malaysia is a cluster of antique buildings turned into stunning villas. Tucked away from the island’s touristic areas, you’ll feel like your worlds away. Not only that, but a percentage of all profits go directly towards LASSie in efforts to help save stray animals on the island. Perks: freshly baked pastries delivered to your room each morning and cute, fluffy cats and dogs roaming around that have been rescued!
