Sustainable Travel In 2022

With travel slowly but surely roaring back to life - sustainability certainly doesn’t need to take a backseat while you’re on holiday. In fact, it can even start with where you choose to stay on vacation as you think about travelling more consciously.  

From the wine country wonder of New South Wales to the deep-sea adventures in the Maldives and the vibrant hustle and bustle of Seoul, we’ve rounded up five hotels and resorts for some inspiration for travellers as they dream about their next sustainable escape:

 voco Seoul Gangnam

Just opened on 23 April 2022, voco Seoul Gangnam is the first voco hotel in South Korea. Located in Sinsa-dong in the heart of Seoul’s energetic Gangnam district – one of its main tourist areas and economic hubs well known for trendy restaurants, designer-brand shopping malls and vibrant nightlife, the hotel offers a communal kitchen on every floor for guests’ usage and is the first to introduce the eco-friendly large size bathroom amenities from Antipodes, an award-winning plant-based organic skincare company.


Regent Phu Quoc

Just opened on 19 April 2022, Regent Phu Quoc is the first resort in South East Asia under IHG Hotels & Resorts’ upper luxury brand. Set on the waterfront along the pristine white sands of Long Beach with views of the calm waters in Bai Truong’s Phu Quoc Marina, off Vietnam’s southwest coast alongside a UNESCO-designated World Biosphere Reserve. The all-suite-and-villa resort has been designed as a sublime haven, infused with the soul of the island, with world-class dining experiences, private beach, spa, pool and gym facilities.
