From volunteering your time to knowing your money is being well spent, today’s modern getaways don’t compromise on style and take altruism to a whole new level.
North Island Seychelles
Ongoing conservation is at the heart of North Island’s philosophy and volunteer work forms a vital part of the island’s Noah’s Ark Rehabilitation Program. In partnership with Wildlife ACT, guests have the unique opportunity to join the team of environmentalists as an ecotourist on North Island which allows you to accompany scientists and Seychelles volunteers while focusing on endangered species monitoring, marine conservation, and ecosystem restoration. No more than four participants join a dedicated conservation and research team on a private island and get involved in all the activities of the Environmental Department and conservation volunteers – from field work to data entry.

The Seminyak Beach Resort & Spa, Bali
The Seminyak Beach Resort assists local projects and one such is its contribution to ROle Foundation’s Soap Recycling Program. Every year in Bali, 75 tons of soap is thrown away by hotels and villas. The soap may have only been used once or twice (or sometimes not at all) by guests. Every month ROle collects it and then it is delivered to the Foundation’s small-scale soap reprocessing center at the ROle Foundation campus in Nusa Dua, where it is broken down, sanitized, and reprocessed to create new soap. The aim is to recycle 19,500 bars of used hospitality
soap annually. The soap is then supplied to poor communities and orphanages in need of hygiene products.
