Shangri-La Sydney has eight beehives on its level three rooftop, where the honey is naturally harvested and hand-spun without heat treatment.
Partnering with The Urban Beehive, the hotel’s colony of bees average 50 kilograms of honey per year, producing over 300 kilograms.
As the first luxury hotel in the city to start the urban beekeeping trend, the beehive initiative is a sustainable take on the farm to table and slow food movement.
The Rocks has proven to be the perfect playground for the Shangri-La bees, with the urban colony yielding a unique flavour of honey due to Sydney’s exotic collection of trees and flowers, and vicinity to Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens on the harbour foreshore.
The hotel-made honey is used in the kitchens to offer guests raw, unfiltered honeycomb, and the honey can also be purchased by guests.
Shangri-La Sydney is proud to support Project Youth, a Sydney charity that helps young people who are facing disadvantage.
Project Youth strives to provide aid and assistance to individuals aged 12 – 24 who are impacted by homelessness, mental ill-health, substance dependency, family dysfunction, lack of education, unemployment, involvement in the criminal justice system, abuse, neglect and poverty.
The Education, Employment and Training team re-engage young people with schooling, provide access to potential job opportunities and offer programs which create opportunity for their futures.
Shangri-La Sydney has supported young people through Project Youth since 2017 by providing trainee and employment opportunities as well as mentorship through the Job Readiness program and Hospitality Course.
