Cavallo Point Contributes


Our Philosophy

Cavallo Point shares the commitment to the community and the environment demonstrated by Passport Resorts and its sister properties. The San Francisco hotel management company is internationally known for developing and operating award-winning resorts that promote environmental and social responsibility, support sustainable development, and offer a luxurious and soulful guest experience.

Since its inception in 1998, Passport Resorts has embraced the philosophy that "what is good for our earth is also good for business." Our commitment is to take as little from the environment as possible and to give back as much as we can. All Passport resorts share a reverence for the land, community and local culture.

To manifest this philosophy, we lead by example and pursue these strategies:

  • Create a responsible partnership with the local community
  • Inspire, educate and communicate with staff, community, guests and others
  • Preserve and protect the environment
  • Respect others with whom we share the land, and preserve and impart their culture
  • Develop staff and the local economy, recognizing the impact of local employment
  • Provide opportunities for philanthropy (both guests and corporate donors)
  • Support other non-profits with similar priorities

At Passport Resorts, we pursue what we call "holistic hospitality." This means we engage with guests, staff, the community and nature with intention, integrity and respect. Today, as we see our long-held values regarding environmental stewardship and community support gain momentum around the world, Passport believes that luxury and sustainability are not mutually exclusive, but work ideally together.
