AVANI

AVANI proudly supports the Heinecke Foundation, which gives back to the community by awarding scholarships to students – from early childhood education levels through to graduation. Since the foundation’s launch in 2000, thousands of children have been supported.

AVANI properties also participate in social and environmental initiatives from Earth Hour to support for local charities in individual destinations, in addition to sustainable practices in development and operations, a consistent emphasis across the Minor Hotels portfolio.

One of its newest environmental initiatives, AVANI has eradicated the use of plastic straws in all of its hotels and resorts in Asia as of 1 January 2018. Plans are underway to expand this globally by the end of the year. A variety of biodegradable and reusable alternatives – such as bamboo and stainless steel – are being introduced. The throwaway nature of single-use, seemingly harmless plastic straws contributes to these products actually being one of the top two polluters of the ocean. AVANI hopes to inspire guests and other brands to follow its lead in rejecting plastic straws in their own day to day lives and operations.
