Social is the way forward
When offered the right tools, knowledge and a push in the back, disadvantaged communities are able to create safe and healthy living environments in which their communities can flourish and grow.
Doing good, to us, is not what others call corporate social responsibility. That's just a piece of paper. At Good Hotel, doing good is rooted into the DNA of our business model. We think long-term – big. The sort of big that changes generations.
An equal start in life depends on two things: education and safety. This is why we employ a bilateral approach when it comes to helping build a future for local disadvantaged children.
Good Hotel Antigua donates all its profits to NGO Niños de Guatemala, which provides quality education to kids who live in poverty.
We have established a training program for single mothers, in order to provide them with the knowledge and self-confidence they need to move out of unemployment and illiteracy, so they can create a safe place for their children to come home to.
When staying at Good Hotel Antigua, you’ll meet some of these single moms. They are our hosts, housekeepers, supervisors, and chefs. They are the most genuine hosts one can imagine.
We believe your travels could, and should create a positive impact on local communities.
We apply this philosophy to all aspects of our organization, with the objective of generating a beneficial and scalable business with a measurable, social and environmental impact.
Local is social. Connecting with local businesses not only reduces our carbon footprint by minimizing the transportation distance of food and materials, it also gives us the opportunity to get involved in local communities. This allows us to gain the knowledge needed in to maximize our social and environmental impact, and to create a premium hotel experience that reflects the local atmosphere.
We believe in fresh starts and second chances. Renewing by rethinking: all it takes is a little love and care, in order to transform discarded materials into something of value and purpose. And all the rest should be bio-degradable. That is why we use natural, durable and re-purposed materials. Some of which we're very proud of: like our handcrafted wooden furnishings, made locally from the wood of our building before its renovation.
We believe everyone can shine under the right circumstances. That's why we offer our Good Training program, which provides a custom-made hospitality training to unemployed individuals, (re-)integrating them in the job market and offering them a real perspective to a better future. We place people at the heart in all of our decisions we make.
Premium quality will last a lifetime. When it comes to our products and buildings, we look for solutions that combine eco-friendly durability with luxury and beauty. Beautiful products with a timeless quality that last. Saving energy, by integrating natural ventilation systems and water reclamation systems into our hotel design. Saving the environment, by using renewable energy sources and locally sourced materials.
