Christmas with A Cause

Committed to the craft of the stay, Capella Hotels and Resorts are fast becoming recognised for offering meaningful hospitality experiences, which are curated for the curious mind. With this in mind, and as the season of goodwill approaches, the group is renewing their commitment to being social custodians of each destination, with several community-focused initiatives designed to help guests give back during the festive season.

Capella Ubud

This December, Capella Ubud, Bali has pledged to donate 1% of the revenue generated from all bookings that are made through its website from 1 – 31 December 2019 to Trash Hero Indonesia. Trash Hero Indonesia is a national chapter of Trash Hero World, a global voluntary movement that is made up of non-profit, community-based organisations with the mission to bring communities together to clean the environment. The movement aims to reduce waste through trash clean-ups, educational workshops on the environmental impact of trash, and long-term sustainable programmes that empower communities to better reduce and manage waste.

The proceeds from this month-long promotion will be utilised to support the Trash Hero Kids program, the Trash Hero Learning Center and the upcoming publication of the Trash Hero Kids Book, intended to educate the younger generation on waste management.

Capella Shanghai, Jian Ye Li

During the holiday season, Capella Shanghai, Jian Ye Li is embracing the spirit of community; throughout December, they will be working with World of Art Brut Culture, a local organisation that provides free art development courses for those with intellectual and mental disabilities.

Through this partnership, children from surrounding neighbourhoods will be invited to the property to create ornamental wish lists with their Christmas wishes written on them. These ornaments will be hung from the Capella Shanghai Christmas tree, and hotel guests will be invited to make donations to help make these wishes come true.

Capella Breidenbacher Hof, Düsseldorf

The picturesque city of Düsseldorf is alight with Christmas lights and festive markets throughout the season, and Capella Breidenbacher Hof, Düsseldorf will be celebrating the season in a meaningful way this year. For several years, the property has been supporting local charity, KIDsmiling, who work to offer meaningful experiences to children from disadvantaged backgrounds. Ahead of the Christmas season, Capella Breidenbacher Hof, Düsseldorf will host several children for a cooking class with Chef Philipp Ferber in the hotel kitchen.

During the session, Chef Philipp will share his expertise and teach the children the important process of selecting ingredients and the skills required to prepare their own meals. At the end of the session, each child will receive an apron, wooden spoon, and recipe card to help them recreate the dish at home.

Capella Hotels and Resorts are masters in the craft of the stay, and this festive season, the properties are committed to helping to support and protect their local community as they spur on the spirit of giving back. The Capella Hotels and Resorts portfolio consists of properties in Singapore, Ubud, Shanghai, Sanya, Düsseldorf and Bangkok in a few months, as well as hotels in the Maldives and Sydney set to open in the near future.
