Their sustainable actions and mindful Tourism experience makes it a perfect destination to host the multi-disciplinary platform of the Eastern Himalayan Naturenomics™ Platform to foster community conservation in the region. And to offer the participants, guests and dignitaries a bio-cultural experience and allow them to soak in sustainable living. While driving ideas, solutions and actions towards a sustainable planet.
“Vivanta by Taj”, Guwahati is a thriving eco-tourism destination of North East of India and is the trendiest place in town. They integrate local with modern experiences giving their guests a holistic experience of the natural and cultural diversity of the Eastern Himalayas. Guests are given a warm traditional welcome with saffron & a traditional Assamese scarf, the “Ghamosa” and a refreshing welcome drink Thekera- a nondescript fruit with awesome health benefits, cooling, souring and that aids digestion.
With a special focus on bringing glocal cuisine to the platform, they use seasonal products from their kitchen garden and call the experience “Locavore” and “Zero-mile cooking” leveraging most of the ingredients sourced organically and from local markets. They offer delicious smorgasbord of North east local fruits and a lip-smacking array of visually appealing and tantalizing the taste-bud vegan meals. They ensure maximum optimization and minimum waste as a policy. Segregated, recycled and appropriately disposed.
The natural green valley of Assam, its breathtaking scenery of green plains and blue hills at a distance is the picturesque view surrounding the Hotel grounds. The property is a fly ash brick hotel! I.E. pre-mixed concreate blocks - hence less water has been used during construction itself. Taj believes in reducing consumption and wastage of water by installing low flow fixtures and controlled pressure points. Practice rainwater harvesting for ground water harvesting and implementation of power conservation through installation of low power LED lamps. With a state of the art Sewage treatment plant, treated water goes directly to the gardens. An example of using sustainable design for architecture and glass paneled long windows, it beams of daylight, breath of fresh air and rhythm of life.
Its cozy green nooks of tranquil and abandon are a cradle for creativity and genius. Taj offers many opportunities to connect with nature from within the property and to practice sustainable living. Tree plantation and green cover, go hand in hand to craft a natural habitat for many species of birds and bees. Gifting a plant, gifting greenery to back wonderful memories and a piece of North East, nurturing nature is at the root of all of activities at the venue. It is an oasis of peace and tranquility. Taj is a treat for wildlife and nature lovers.
In our effort to create a global ecological footprint and to spread the message on promoting Eco- destinations in the region, Vivanta by Taj will be our host at The Eastern Himalayan Naturenomics™ Forum 2018 & 2019.
