Lotus and Jasmine, a Meaningful Vacation: the last few months have been challenging for all of us. However the concern for environmental protection and personal health are now under the spotlight of consumers, companies, and governments. In 2019 I started working on a project that seems to suit perfectly this new post Covid-19 era: Lotus & Jasmine, Vietnam and Thailand. Boutique eco-friendly lodging facilities and organic restaurants will showcase a range of activities with a strong focus on awareness, environment and community. We aim to enhance the guest experience by creating moments of responsible tourism and generating a positive impact on the environment, society and economy of local communities.
