Hotel Membership

why we exist

Built by hoteliers for hoteliers with a commitment to regeneration.

Regenerative Travel was born from the need of one hotelier both to connect with other properties that shared a commitment to tourism practices that actively improves its environmental surroundings and its stakeholders, and to make it easy for their conscious travelers more easily to find values-aligned hotels.

We believe in continual evolution

Regenerative Travel is built for hotels who share a similar approach to doing business the right way and a willingness to share best practice so that the entire travel community can move towards regeneration and an equal commitment to social justice and human equality as to environmental preservation.

Hospitality is increasingly saturated with brands claiming sustainability credentials and conscious consumers are demanding more detail about business’ social and environmental practices than ever before. Regenerative Travel helps hotels measure and communicate their impact across our metrics that demonstrate how your property contributes to the community and place where you are located. Our standards connect to broader frameworks such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals and B Corp certification, but are customized for small hotels. We establish benchmarks for your hotel and the entire collection and help you track and report how you grow and improve over time.
