The Tiaki Promise is a commitment to care for New Zealand, for now, and for future generations. We encourage all of our guests to follow the principles of the Tiaki Promise and to make a commitment to act as a guardian, protecting and preserving our home. The guiding principles of the Tiaki Promise are;
Care for land, sea and nature, treading lightly and leaving no trace
Travel safely showing care and consideration for all
Respect culture travelling with an open heart and mind
You will see these principles brought to life through our commitment to support environmental causes, and our caring luxury policy, our company values of integrity and respect, and our involvement with a host of community groups, charities, and other organisations. By following the tiaki promise while you journey through New Zealand you are making a commitment to act as a guardian protecting and preserving our home for future generations.
