The Savoy: London’s most sustainable luxury hotel’?

Katie Hill - Editor-in-Chief, My Green Pod

In a bid to become ‘London’s most sustainable luxury hotel’, The Savoy has developed a package that lets guests experience the luxurious and ‘green’ sides of London.

The ‘Elements Stay Package’ includes a ‘Green Butler’, who will be on-hand to share all he knows about what The Savoy – and London – has to offer for the eco-conscious tourist. Intellectually curious travellers can enjoy a three-hour sustainability-themed walk with Context Travel, or experience London’s wild side with a trip to ZSL London Zoo, which has been attracting visitors of all ages since 1847.

10 squids for the zoo

At the zoo you’ll get to meet and explore the habitats of over 750 different species of animal, and learn about some of the zoo’s wild animal conservation, education and science programmes. On top of that The Savoy will donate £10 to The Zoological Society of London (ZSL) charity on your behalf.

During the stay you’ll be able to enjoy meals in Kaspar’s, which is a member of the Sustainable Restaurant Association, and a gourmet organic hamper can be arranged if you feel like going out for the day. The concierge will be able to point you in the direction of heritage sites, nature walks, cycling and jogging routes, wildlife centres, conservation programmes and community projects for volunteering.

If the weather’s not great and you don’t want to make use of one of the hotel’s BMW bikes (and helmets), there’s a one-day travel card to fall back on. But, after being picked up in a chauffeur-driven luxury Mercedes ‘BlueTEC’ hybrid on arrival, the Jubilee line at rush hour may seem a bit of a fall from grace.
