Locals designed, built, and furnished this unique gem of a hotel, for a vibrant, joyful place where colour equals happiness. Inspired by the islands upbeat vibe, SALT of Palmar pops with energy against a mellow natural backdrop and is Green Globe Sustainability Certified. With a salt room in the spa, no single-use plastics and a direct farm to restaurant supply, this is the ultimate luxury escape.
The core of SALTs mission is to align with the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals and the 10 Principles of UN Global Compact. By adopting fundamental responsibilities in the areas of Human Rights, Labour, Environment and Anti-corruption, they put good governance and sustainability at the centre of their business. They bring support to the communities in every destination where they operate on a range of issues from inclusive community development, healthcare, poverty reduction, to environmental projects such as endemic biodiversity conservation.
Their Ray of Light initiative engages the community and other stakeholders in multiple projects aimed at uplifting those suffering from various types of marginalisation. SALT collaborates with NGOs dedicated to offering quality education to children coming from disadvantaged households, healthcare to the needy, support for gender equality through women and girls empowerment, advising and guiding the disabled towards self-reliance, through sports or IT projects.
