Dear collaborators,

We are pleased to be able to present our Hostal through the platform provided to us by these internationally recognized awards.

The Hostal Spa Empúries is much more than a hotel enterprise: it is a personal commitment. Our commitment is based on respect for nature, the environment and for human beings.

We treat our clients with a dedication to service, responding to the need to get our message of respect across to them, as we strive to offer service centred on a quest for excellence.

At Hostal Spa Empúries we manage our legacy so as to ensure the finest experiences for all our clients, while guaranteeing the highest quality for future generations.  

So as to better develop our task, we have chosen the most advanced tools to date in helping plan the majority of our actions. We refer here to the sustainable architecture certificate LEED, and to Cradle to Cradle, which is used to analyze and efficiently manage material and energy resources.

The expansion and rehabilitation of the Hostal Spa Empúries has been undertaken with the idea of ensuring a new building essential for our future. This is why we feel obliged to opt for materials that can be transformed into primary resources, so as to produce new materials with the same use value.

For these reasons we most favourably support the inclusion of our Hostal in the Green Building Solutions Awards 2015.
