By choosing to book a hotel that has strong ties to their local community, you are directly contributing to the economic and social development of the region. Hotels in our Community Purpose Category collaborate with local stakeholders, making sure that the compensation they receive from the tourism industry is shared amongst the entire community. That way when you travel you know your money is not just going into a big corporation or global brand, but having a truly positive impact on the destination you are visiting. Together we can consciously choose to support hotels that build strong, symbiotic relationships with the communities and its members where it inhabits.
