Rosewood Hotels & Resorts: A Beacon of Sustainability Excellence

In recent times, sustainability has become a buzzword for the hospitality industry, but luxury hotel groups like Rosewood Hotels & Resorts have made it a central pillar of their brand. Embarking on a journey to redefine luxury with a conscience, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts are knitting its high-end services with the threads of environmental and social responsibility. With the introduction of staunch initiatives like “Rosewood Impacts”, the brand aims to nurture a more responsible, inclusive, and sustainable future. This roadmap is structured on two intrinsic pillars: “Rosewood Empowers” and “Rosewood Sustains.”

“Rosewood Empowers” focuses on empowering the underrepresented communities through conscientious employment strategies, and by investing in the collective future through education and up-skilling. “Rosewood Sustains” focuses on embracing the circular economy to protect future generations.

Here’s a closer look at how this paradigm shift is unfolding at some Rosewood Hotels & Resorts in the Caribbean, in particular Rosewood Bermuda, Rosewood Baha Mar and Rosewood Mayakoba. We also highlight their other beautiful properties in the Caribbean as well as their sustainable initiatives.

Beyond leisure and refinement, Rosewood Bermuda is equally an emblem of sustainability. In collaboration with Bermuda National Trust, the resort introduced the ‘Juniper Initiative’ that aims to preserve the island’s native juniper tree population.
