Our journey as hoteliers has given us a new mission: we aim to give nature a holiday. La Siesta Hoi An resort & spa wishes to create a clean and sustainable resort where you could relax in the knowledge that we are trying our best to protect our environment - Small changes can make a big difference.
Closeness to Nature
Thanks to our team of dedicated architects and designers, we were able to build a resort that allows us to make great strides in sustainability, something that lies in our core values. Our mission has encouraged us to use as many natural and renewable materials as possible in the construction of La Siesta Hoi An Resort & Spa such as bamboo, wood, palm leaves and bricks.
We make sure to compliment the beauty of nature with its own sweeping landscape, with 70% of the resort’s land dedicated to plants and greenery.
The greenery system at La Siesta not only creates fresh air and enchanting natural landscapes, it also acts as a natural sound barrier against the bustling of the city and provides natural cooling effects against the hot tropical weather.
At La Siesta Hoi An, we care about the environment. That’s why one of our top priorities is to improve the ecological and carbon footprint of the resort operation. Reflecting a love of nature and increasing our efforts in making the world a better place, we are on the journey to reduce energy, water, and waste, and improve our impact on the environment.
Our goal is to become plastic-free with the help of renewable and recyclable products in the future. In addition, we are trying to reduce the use of single-use plastic materials by replacing plastic bottles for shampoo, conditioner, and bath gel with ceramic containers.
To further diminish the threats to our environment, we have introduced toothbrushes, combs, and razors wrapped in soft recyclable paper packages.
We wish to deliver cold beverages to you while staying environmentally friendly – we use acrylic, and stainless steel straws. These substitutes of plastic straws are completely recyclable and can be reused after thorough cleaning.
Our guests enjoy drinking water which is bottled in reusable glass bottles. This saves around 120 000 plastic bottles per year from the resort and to the landfill.
Garden re-invention. Falling leaves are turned into homemade compost and re-introduced back into the rich soil as natural fertilisers for our beautiful gardens.
Our commitment to keeping alive the fabulous traditions of Hoi An are evidenced in our construction. Wooden columns, yellow walls and the yin and yang roof tiles architecture is matched in beauty with amenities made of stone. Décor celebrating local culture, all sourced from local artisans in a bid to support these ancient trades and craftsmen. The restaurant also champions delectable Hoi An cuisine with a huge selection of regional delicacies.
All the paintings, photos exhibited within the hotel are created by local artists all across Vietnam. Life, traditions and sceneries of Hoi An are brought to life by these local artists.
Many of our staff were born and raised in Hoi An, and we cherish our community by providing jobs to locals as well as people from all over Vietnam.
To raise funds for the Go Green Foundation, which supports worthwhile projects such as planting trees, helping endangered animals and so on, our team sells old/used clothes and second hand goods online and at flea markets. Everyone is welcome to contribute goods for sale and hotel guests can also donate items they no longer need – or even help out on the flea market stall!
