How We’re Practicing Sustainable Hospitality

By Odyssey Resorts

Every action no matter how small can make a difference in reducing our carbon footprint.

When planning a vacation, it's important to consider sustainable options that minimize the impact on the environment. Odyssey Resorts is dedicated to sustainable tourism and constantly works to create eco-friendly properties. A small action can make a big difference, and through our Sustainability from the Heart initiative, we are committed to leaving a lasting legacy of sustainability for future generations.

This is especially crucial given that Odyssey Resorts operates in places with rich biodiversity and wildlife. Mindful sustainability practices while traveling help protect the natural beauty of our world, and every small step taken by our team and guests has the potential to make a meaningful impact in preserving the environment and promoting responsible travel.

How We Implement Sustainability in the Hospitality Industry

Odyssey has recently pledged to promote sustainable travel by signing the UNESCO Sustainable Travel Pledge. The pledge comprises five pillars that Odyssey strives to improve: community engagement, energy conservation, water conservation, waste reduction, and single-use plastic reduction. As part of our commitment, we have initiated the transition of interior lighting to LED light bulbs, and currently, over 80% of our lighting is already energy-saving. We aim to reach 100% energy-saving LED lighting in all our properties by 2024. Resorts are also equipped with water dispensers to promote the use of reusable water bottles.

If you're looking for an eco-friendly travel option, Odyssey is the perfect choice! By choosing our properties over other options, you're making a responsible decision and contributing towards sustainable tourism. Odyssey is committed to sustainability in hospitality, taking small yet impactful steps towards making a change. When we look at the bigger picture, these efforts can create a more sustainable future for all. From using eco-friendly products to supporting local businesses, every step taken is a step towards a brighter future for the planet.

Sustainable Minds Elevate Your Vacation

Whether you’re revisiting a familiar spot or exploring a new destination, everyone deserves a break. This is your opportunity to let go of any stress and fully immerse yourself in the present moment and have fun!

At Odyssey Resorts, you’ll have the chance to try seasonal outdoor activities like paddle boarding, canoeing, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, fishing, and so much more. Our guided experiences offer a range of options, all led by friendly and patient experts. Engaging in these experiences allows us to reconnect with our passions and discover new hobbies, which promote our well-being and enable us to spend our time mindfully doing what we love most.

Each season of life is different, and when things get hectic, it’s especially important to remember to set aside time to do nothing and relax. For your next trip up north, be sure to carve out time to simply soak up the peaceful environment to enjoy the moment by practicing mindfulness and giving yourself the time and space, you feel you need to support your personal wellness.
