ENSO ANGO Social responsibility strategy

The operator and parent company of ENSO ANGO, Ango Hotels, believe that social responsibility is not just a philosophy, it’s a lifestyle.

We created and promote our own brand of shampoo, conditioner and soap which is used in our hotels. The brand products have not been tested on animals, as we believe in protecting their rights; in addition these products also break down easily and safely, reducing the negative impact on our precious biosphere.

We have greatly reduced the use of throw-away plastic items in our hotels in order to reduce garbage and keep our oceans free of plastics.

We collaborate with NGO's and organizations throughout Asia and choose to use their fair trade products in our hotel rooms, with the aim of protecting women's rights and eliminating child labor.

In our restaurant and lounges, we select locally-grown produce wherever possible.
