SALTs approach to travel is a responsible one, creating jobs where needed and being honest and fair in their relationships. Every SALT has its own farm, using permaculture practices and hydroponics to yield diverse crops, while each of the farms has their own vegetarian restaurant. Focusing on daily specials based on their harvest and fishermans catch, this ensures zero skill miles too.
Their commitment to cutting down is also seen in their recycling methods you will never find a single use plastic product at SALT, using products such as cornstarch in their packaging to ensure they can be composted after use.
Mirroring this earth-friendly ethos, the first SALT had to be in Mauritius; SALT of Palmar. Its their home, their love, and their pride and joy. Its an undeniable, exotic beauty and a melting pot of cultures, colours, sounds and tastes, as a result, Mauritius is ripe for exploration and steeped in history.
