Halsall Travel International works with many hotels and destinations that care passionately about their communities and environment. This goes beyond the issues of global warming. It runs deeper.
At Halsall Travel we are committed to sustainability and believe that the travel industry can be a powerful catalyst in the world. Our beliefs are aligned with our partner Virtuoso’s own in-house sustainability program and that of their three pillars: celebrate the culture, support the economy, and protect the planet. We look forward to planning your next journey with these pillars in mind.
There are many great hoteliers and hotel companies putting sustainability at the core their business and we are proud to highlight a few that we love to promote and send our clients to. These are by no means exhaustive and as the industry develops and opens further projects we look forward to sharing them with you.

Small Luxury Hotels Considerate Collection
“STAY SMALL STAY CONSIDERATE”
‘Staying small’ goes hand in hand with travelling sustainably. ‘Small’ has always been the mantra of SLH, and whilst having a global reach, still behaving as a local has always been in their DNA. Most of the SLH collection have no more than 50 rooms, they are all independently owned and many have been in the same family for generations. From a biodiversity-promoting rainforest lodge in Costa Rica to a culture-preserving Provençal château, they are often repurposed or renovated properties – reinvigorated and revived – rather than large scale new-builds. People are the heart of their hotels. They champion their local community, and cherish their culture and environments.
By taking small steps these hoteliers are making a big difference and going a step further the collection has launched the Considerate Collection, a new ethos driven green and ocean blue standard for boutique hotels that go the extra eco mile. This initiative allows the curious considerate traveller to make carefully considered travel choices. To avoid confusion over global certificates, and to cut out greenwashing. So we take care of the carbon footprint of travel and these hotels take care of your stay. As near a perfect combination as possible.
