Green Hotels: Protect the Amazon with Grand Hotel Kempinski Geneva

Grand Hotel Kempinski GenevaGrand Hotel Kempinski Geneva—the luxury landmark on the shores of Lake Geneva—is making it easy for environment-minded travelers to take action this year. They’ve partnered with Aquaverde, a nonprofit lauded for its work supporting the Amazon rainforest and the indigenous peoples who inhabit it. Deforestation in Brazil’s Amazon has risen sharply in recent years, an alarming trend because of the rainforest’s crucial role in sucking up greenhouse gases and preventing climate change. (The Amazon also has the largest freshwater reserve on earth, and is a bastion of biodiversity.) Among the special packages available at the Grand Hotel Kempinski Geneva, the “Green Package” supports Aquaverde’s program by planting one Kempinski Tree per guest on protected indigenous land (the Surui tribe). Also included with your luxury accommodations: Swiss chocolates in your room upon arrival.

With views of Geneva’s famous Jet d’eau and Mont Blanc in the background, the Grand Hotel Kempinski is home to a state-of-the-art gym and spa, excellent restaurants and a new kids club. The hotel is located at 19, Quai du Mont-Blanc, just a short walk from the Old Town. For more information, check out the website: www.kempinski.com/en/geneva/pages/welcome.aspx.
