Sweet treats for guests at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong with its own mono-floral honey

As part of its environmental responsibilities or Community Footprints, The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong has joined hands with local beekeepers to raise awareness of the vital role bees play in our environment and to save the global bee population from the threat of Colony Collapse Disorder.

The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, the tallest hotel in the world, has adopted a beehive at Bee’s Nest, giving hotel guests the opportunity to enjoy their pure honey in treats and spa treatments. The boutique bee farm specializes in producing premium mono-floral honey and guests will have the opportunity to learn more about these communities and take a private tour of Bee’s Nest bee farm where they will get to observe honey harvesting and learn about the urban farming movement in Hong Kong. For its excellent quality, the honey produced at Bee’s Nest was recognized as “Best Made in Hong Kong Product” by The Natural & Organic Products Asia Awards in 2014.
