Responsible tourism: Diving holiday in Gozo, Malta


Environmental awareness is a way of life now on Gozo. The majority of our farmhouses have been renovated from traditional old farmhouses and great care has been taken to preserve their historical beauty and their Gozitan charm.

Recycling is now part of life here with each farmhouse containing details of where, what and when items can be recycled which helps the guests to sort out their daily waste. Recycling bins can also be found in various spots around the island making sure it is easy to dispose of your recyclable waste.

Most of the farmhouses do not come with air-conditioning as the buildings are built with extremely thick walls from their local stone which keeps the farmhouses cool. All come with ceiling fans for when temperatures start sore in the summer months and these prove adequate ventilation for these buildings.

One of the hotels we offer, the Kempinski San Lawrenz, has been awarded a Travelife Gold Award showing its high commitment to sustainability by encouraging others to get involved, constantly seeking new opportunities for improvement, and actively communicating the progress. This is the second accreditation for this hotel after it has been the first and only certified hotel in Gozo achieving the Eco Certification from the Malta Tourism Authority.

The EU recently designated the Ta’ Cenc habitat as a Special Area for Conservation under the European Natura 2000 network. Ta’ Cenc, where the Ta’ Cenc Hotel and Spa is located, is one of 25,000 protected areas within the EU Member States, which essentially safe guards the vast array of endemic, and sometimes unique, species found in this lush natural region.


Our farmhouses are located all around the island and are interspersed within the local communities. Each farmhouse contains an information pack for our guests on where to purchase homegrown products, local restaurants in the area, details on the island’s vineyards hence offering encouragement for the guests to sample some of the Gozo communities’ products and hospitality. Gozo hosts a large number of festivals and our excellent local agents will inform guests of what is on and where to help guests join in with the community and experience their way of life.

One of our hotels that we offer, the Ta’ Cenc, provides guests with local sample products such as wine, honey and oil which is all made by either the staff or the local community. These can also be purchased from the hotel. This hotel has also set up a project with the village council to help conserve the local traditions and to encourage the young people of this village to interact with the tourists.

Most of the employment within the hotels are locally sourced as are the local agents, tour guides etc.
