Impact Experiences provide enriching activities that positively impact the local community in a real way. Experiences can be incorporated within a meeting agenda during a lunch or coffee break or arranged outside of the day’s events. On-property activities include:
Partnering with the hotel’s culinary team to prepare the ingredients for a regionally adapted dish to be donated to a local hunger relief organization
Assembling school supplies and art materials in backpacks to be donated to students whose academic success is threatened by poverty
Collaborating in teams to assemble emergency preparedness kits that will be shipped to a disaster relief facility or community organization
Designing and creating greeting and birthday cards for children in a local pediatric healthcare facility or children’s organization
Impact Hour, a platform for leaders from The Ritz-Carlton Community Footprints partner organizations to showcase how they are successfully addressing social and environmental issues
Additionally, Signature Impact Experiences invite groups to take part in an offsite, destination-based activity. In Muscat, participants can help safeguard Oman’s unique ecosystem by restoring the Mangroves Nature Reserve with new plantings. They’ll also learn about the reserve’s future through a presentation from the Ministry of Environment.
The Ritz-Carlton carries a genuine commitment to support the community and environment, and has instilled initiatives that protect natural resources while still delivering an unparalleled guest experience.

In the community, the resort’s ladies and gentlemen contribute to projects including native plant restoration, the protection of endangered species and the creation of community gardens.
