ENVI Lodges has signed a partnership agreement with Beyond Green, a global portfolio of hotels, lodges and resorts representing sustainable tourism leadership. Beyond Green is owned by Preferred Hotel Group, an international leader in the hospitality industry that provides high-performance sales, marketing and technology solutions to independent hotels and resorts. As part of the partnership with Beyond Green, ENVI will also benefit from I Prefer, Preferred Hotel Group’s loyalty rewards program, allowing guests to earn and redeem points in more than 650 hotels and resorts across 80 countries.
ENVI Lodges launched in September 2021 as the GCC’s first luxury eco-lodge brand and management company. ENVI shares Beyond Green’s core values — nature, culture and community — from its design to its operating philosophy.
“We are thrilled to join a forward-thinking and responsible brand whose values and objectives are completely aligned with ours,” said ENVI co-founder Noelle Homsy. “We developed our technical and operating standards to adhere to high levels of sustainability. So, forming a partnership with Beyond Green validates our commitment to responsible tourism and awareness in our industry.”
eyond Green members must meet a robust set of more than 50 sustainable tourism standards that are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In order to join the Beyond Green portfolio, every member undergoes a rigorous vetting process based upon three key sustainable travel pillars:
Implementation of environmentally friendly practices
Protection of natural and cultural heritage
Contribution to the social and economic wellbeing of local communities
“The world needs more hospitality companies that are committed to authenticity, inspiring guest experiences and sustainability leadership through action and impact. We are delighted that ENVI selected Beyond Green as their hospitality partner and look forward to welcoming their first lodge into our portfolio of world-class properties demonstrating travel as a force for good,” said Costas Christ, one of the world’s top sustainable travel experts and co-founder of Beyond Green.
Upon completing a required onsite inspection, every ENVI lodge will benefit from Beyond Green’s global distribution system, worldwide call and sales centers, booking engine, connectivity to OTAs, and 200 luxury travel advisor partners.
