    Cayuga Sustainable Hospitality, owner of several eco-lodges, eco-resorts and sustainable hotels & resorts in Costa Rica and Nicaragua, was among the 15 companies selected by Condé Nest Traveler to receive its 2012 World Savers Award.

    A panel of independent judges was responsible for choosing the visionary companies around the world that are using the power of travel to do good, one of Condé Nest Traveler’s goal since it was launched 25 years ago.

    All companies were assessed on how they exercise social responsibility in five areas: Poverty Relief, Preservation (Environmental/Cultural), Education Programs, Wildlife Conservation, and Health Initiatives.

    This year, 48 finalists were chosen by the editors from 111 applicants. The judges then ranked the applicants in each of the five areas. The final winner of each award was determined by compiling the judges’ rankings.

    According to Condé Nest Traveler the hotels, resorts, cruise lines, airlines and tour operators selected “prove that when you give your travel dollars to environmentally and socially responsible companies, you’re not called upon to give up your creature comforts in exchange. Yes, you can have superb trips, at the same time knowing you have helped the planet and its people.”

    Cayuga Sustainable Hospitality was selected precisely for combining luxury with socially responsible operations, and it was the winner of the Poverty Award.

    One of the positive contributions of Cayuga Sustainable Hospitality is that it buys locally, employs locally, and supports local culture too.

    “Buying locally has a profound positive impact on the local communities around Cayuga’s hotels. At Lapa Rios, on Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula, the biodegradable Aromas para el Alma (“Scents for the Soul”) bath products come from a woman-run micro-enterprise that donates money to conserving the nearby Corcovado National Park—thereby benefiting both people and planet,” said Traveler.

    In addition, Cayuga was praised for investing in the local people with extensive on-the-job training.

    Cayuga also won in 2010 in the Wildlife category.
