​UXUA NOMINATED FOR SUSTAINABILITY AWARD

Thanks to the Virtuoso Network for nominating us for a very special honor.

Out of over 1000 properties in 100 countries worldwide, Virtuoso included UXUA among only 5 to be considered for the Sustainable Tourism Leadership prize, a part of their 2015 Best of the Best Awards. The winner will be announced at a ceremony in Las Vegas, Nevada on August 15, 2015.

More and more travellers are concerned about staying at hotels which show commitment to their community and good environmental practices. Since our opening we’ve enjoyed support from such socially conscious vacationers, and this has given all our team a lot of pride and satisfaction. Its just an added reward to see groups like Virtuoso now recognizing our initiatives.

We’re only an 11-casa hotel in a remote part of the world, but our selection by Virtuoso proves that even small, local efforts can have a positive impact not just in the immediate community, but beyond. We want to give big thanks to all our team and everyone contributing every day to our efforts.

UXUA is a Trancoso story, totally local, and our ‘no growth’ strategy means never expanding from here. But we’ll always try to grow and evolve the ways we can integrate and give back to our community, using hard work, investment, and creativity.
