Get to know the world of the Responsible Hotels of Switzerland.
A trailblazing social sustainability project
In the heart of Valais, on the north-south arterial route, is the Roman town of Martigny – home to the mARTigny, a hotel that is truly one of a kind. As the hotel’s name suggests, art is centre-stage here. Each of the 52 rooms and suites is named after an artist – reflecting the hotel’s partnership with the Fondation Pierre Gianadda.
The mARTigny also runs a pioneering social integration project: the hotel employs 40 people with disabilities, thus lending structure to their lives. This is equivalent to 60% of the workforce. Thanks to this social commitment, these employees benefit from contact with the outside world and their fellow human beings. As well as this, they are gradually able to take on responsibilities – helping them to acquire the «ART» of living.
The hotel building is constructed in compliance with the Minergie concept. Preference is mostly given to local suppliers, so regional and seasonal products are offered. The Boutique Hotel has also been awarded the «Valais excellence» label for Valais enterprises that achieve top performance and show the greatest commitment.
