Barefoot luxury is sustainable luxury

by | 2 Jul, 2020 | Travel Industry Updates

It’s a reflection of our philosophy: Small is Beautiful.

Recognising the beauty of our natural surroundings as our most precious resource, we treat mother Nature with the highest respect, continuously seeking new ways to reduce our footprint and increase our sustainability on this little slice of Paradise.

We extend that respect to the local communities and our team who works in an inspiring and purpose driven environ- ment, operating as a family, sharing common values, honour and integrity.

Nay Palad takes every opportunity to help our family of makers and dreamers thrive, from fostering best-practices, to spreading our commitment for positive change to our guests. We focus on finding sustainable solutions to ensure a las- ting, positive impact.

We pride ourselves on the colourful variety of vegetables and herbs we grow at our very own organic farm, where all the captivating flavours and aromas of Siargao come together. Feel free to visit our garden with chef Marc to see where he sources produce from the farm and ready for your plate.

Our organic vegetables are grown with sustainable and ethical approaches according to the seasons.

Nay Palad Hideaway is part of the Long Run Initiative, aiming to create truly sustainable luxury experiences, applying the “4Cs” — conservation, community, culture and commerce — to help ensure that these unique locations are available for generations to come. We care about the communities and ecosystems that make our resort experience possible and work to support their well-being.

We create limitless Barefoot Luxury experiences and lifetime memories for our guests & friends. We envision a world in which people feel at home again by developing places to retreat, rejuvenate and reconnect with nature. We treat the world like a home. We take our shoes off at the door, take care of what we have, and are always welcoming to others.

After all, we’re only visiting.
