Their aim

Not only does The Gran Melia Palacio de Isora boast luxury accommodation, services and restaurants, but this hotel is a huge advocate for looking after the environment and the local area. Having a ‘Sustainability Co-ordinator’ in place since 2012, the responsible hotel company aims to safeguard the environment around it and continually improve their systems to promote sustainable values. Alongside the positive effect which the hotel has on the environment, they also believe in reducing social differences and inequalities. To do this, they take local people into special consideration when hiring and they support local causes who help the more disadvantaged. As well as this, the hotel promotes a culture of equality and does not differentiate people based on gender, religion, cultural identity and/or ethnicity.

Through their ethics and beliefs, The Gran Melia Palacio de Isora has contributed, and carries on contributing, a great deal to society to protect the environment and support amazing causes that are doing good for those who need it. From Sustainable Oceans, to the Perenquen Foundation, to the Alcalá Women’s Soccer Club – the hotel’s social fund has supported many non-profit organisations, as well as getting stuck in by taking steps such as removing all single-use plastics from the hotel and cleaning up the local beaches.
