A certified reality

Looking forward means not setting limits in order to not limit the future

Earth’s natural resources are becoming scarcer and our first priority is to fight against every kind of waste. A water and energy consumption Analysis is being carefully taken in our 4 Sicilian realities: Arenella, Tindari, Taormina and Scicli and its aim is to find new efficiency possibilities. This evaluation will be completed in 2019, and the analysis of the other hotels of our chain will follow: this journey will end in 2021. The GSTC (Global Sustainable Tourism Council), established in 2007 by UNWTO (United Nation World Tourism Organization) with the aim of promoting sustainability and social responsibility in tourism, is the organization that will accompany us along this path and will certify our choices and our improvement.

No more plastic

We believe that great goals can be achieved also through small acts

We decided to announce that from next summer we’ll stop using disposable plastics in our hotels. We know that plastic is one of the most polluting material: it takes 500 years for a drinking straw and 1000 for a bottle to be disposed of. It is easy to understand how every hotel can affect the environment if we think, for example, about the summer period, when the consumption of drinks is very intensive and the material needs to be properly disposed of. That’s why VOIhotels decided to significantly reduce plastic waste by eliminating 1.1 million plastics in 2019. And the commitment of VOIhotels will continue in the education and awareness-raising of its guests, promoting a more responsible plastic consumption and its sustainable disposal.

Local and Bio Menus

For us respecting Earth is living in harmony with the territories that host our hotels

In our 11 hotels located in Italy (Sicily, Sardinia, Apulia, Calabria and Rome) our guests will find special corners with local and “short distribution chain” products; our buffets have more vegetarian and vegan options in order to offer a fuller range of products during the guests’ stay. At VOI Tanka Resort in Sardinia we realized a garden with biological products: it is the result of our strong desire to dialogue with the territory and its excellence products. To be responsible : for us it means also to have care for food intolerance, offering adequate solutions to guests with specific needs, in order to make them enjoy their stay at its best. It is the case of gluten-free products: that’s why VOIhotels resorts in Italy by 2020 will be certified by AIC, the Italian Coeliac Association.
