March 17, 2020 Hotel Deals No Comments Email Email

More and more Aussie travellers are interested in sustainable travel, with a 103% increase in interest for more eco-friendly trips in 2020 and one in ten flights booked through Skyscanner in 2019 being eco-friendly. The ‘sustainable tourist’ is someone who wants to make a positive environmental impact when travelling and prefers to travel to destinations that are ethically responsible and self-sufficient.

  • Ethically-conscious Cocktails for two:
    Experience an unforgettable romantic getaway in the stunning Hunter Valley. With a glass of locally sourced wine on your private balcony, you and your partner can take in the picturesque countryside of the Brokenback Ranges in style at voco Kirkton Park. Searching for the perfect gift to complete the weekend? Book your partner in for a cocktail master class, where you’ll be able to create your very own cocktails using locally-crafted spirits and botanicals. Discover more about your favourite drinks, and sample choice ingredients, such as the sustainably sourced honey from voco Kirkton Park’s very own beehives, used throughout their restaurants and bars. Follow up with a personal guided tour of the vegetable garden, where you will learn about voco’s sustainable growing and sourcing practices. You may also get the chance to pick your own dinner ingredients and enjoy fresh, seasonal produce straight from the paddock to your plate!

  • Sun, Sand and Sustainability:
    Searching for the perfect beach escape? voco Gold Coast has access to the best beaches, surf, and food. Relax and unwind by the pool, enjoy a fresh seafood dinner for two at Clifford’s Grill & Lounge and follow with a glass of locally sourced wine at the bar. Finish the evening off with a romantic stroll along Surfers Paradise Beach and take in the breathtaking sunset. Enjoy a guilt-free stay, knowing that voco is committed to sustainable practices such as smart down bedding made from 100 per cent recycled plastics, and renewable, plant-based and cruelty-free bathroom amenities. The voco Gold Coast rooftop is home to 300,000 bees and there is a resident beekeeper who looks after them. voco’s chefs then use the honey in our signature honey and lavender welcome shortbread biscuits, at the breakfast buffet and in Social House’s cocktail menu.
