Responsible Tourism Award

In November, the Fauzi Azar Inn won the award for Best Accommodation for Local Communities at the 2011 Responsible Tourism Awards, presented by Virgin Holidays and ResponsibleTravel.com.

These prestigious awards are the most competitive of their kind in the world and are a collaboration between online travel directory ResponsibleTravel.com who founded and organize the Awards; UK media partners Metro Newspaper and Geographical Magazine, and World Travel Market who host the presentation event.

The central tenet of the Awards is that all types of tourism – from niche to mainstream – can and should be operated in a way that respects and benefits destinations and local people. Congratulations to all Fauzi Azar Inn staff and volunteers who worked so diligently to make this possible!
