Experience HotelsCGH Earth is a five-decade long experiment in hospitality. Our properties both preserve and reflect the cultures they are born from. Nothing has been added that does not already belong, because nothing more was necessary. The result, we like to believe, are experiences as immersive as they are authentic. Every CGH Earth Experience rests on a set of non-negotiable core values. These values provide, not just the invisible pillars on which our efforts stand, but also serve as a daily inspirations, made visible in hundred little details. CGH Earth believes that it is these details that collectively create the singular mosaic that is a ‘CGH Earth experience’ in itself.

Local experiences and a sense of place are at the core of our business identity. Our stake holders, whether guests, employees, tourism industry or local community, identify us as representing the heritage of the place where we are located.
