#TravelKindly To DiamondHead Beach Resort!

May 11, 2022

The islands, beaches, & neighborhoods of Fort Myers welcome over 5 million visitors each year. As a resort, that’s a statistic we’re proud and grateful to be a part of. As locals & lovers of the planet, we can’t help but wonder how the environmental impact of such high traffic will shape Fort Myers’ future. So, we’ve actioned our dedication to these two things we really care about—travel & environmental sustainability— & partnered with Kind Traveler, a socially conscious Give + Get hotel booking platform. With a mission to empower travelers to positively impact the communities they visit, Kind Traveler offers exclusive rates and perks to users who make a $10 (minimum) direct donation to a local charity.

As an official Kind Hotel, we’re collecting donations to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) right here in Southwest Florida. Consider using Kind Traveler to book your next stay at DiamondHead & support CROW’s veterinary care, research, education, and conservation work — it’ll get you a few goodies upon check-in. Enjoy a complimentary cocktail, an eco-safe water bottle, & room upgrades & late check-in/out upon availability. Plus, the knowledge that your travels are having a positive impact outside of yourself — that’s the real reward.
