Sustainability policy

Los Cauquenes and its responsibility towards the environment

Since its inception and opening in 2005, the hotel’s management has been committed to preserving resources, implementing eco-efficiency and getting better each day.


Three years ago we began to put into practice a sustainable management plan. First, we established our policy and implemented good practices involving all the staff, then we designed a system of sustainable management and obtained the Biosphere Hotel certification in 2012. Since May 2015, we became part of Green Leader By Trip Advisor being Green Leaders Silver Level.

The Green Leader By Trip Advisor standard recognizes hotels and B&Bs that engage in environmentally friendly practices, making it easier for travelers to find and book a greener stay. This program was developed with help from national and international green industry experts including the US Green Building Council's LEED Certification Program, the United Nations Environment Program, the US Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR program, and other sustainability experts.

By being part of Green Leaders, Los Cauquenes meets certain requirements, which helps and brings to minimize its impact on the environment while promoting the social and economic development of the local community. Our resort offers its guests a quality, distinctive product maximizing the tourism experience by integrating visitors into the community life through a deep knowledge of the value the destination has to offer.
