FOGO ISLAND, Nfld. — The Fogo Island Inn has joined Relais & Châteaux, comprised of 580 hotels and restaurants around the world dedicated to forging a better world through exceptional hospitality and cuisine. In the Inn’s 10th year of operation, this partnership presents an opportunity to work closely with liked-minded independent properties from around the world, each committed to championing place-specific hospitality.

In the context of increasing consolidation and corporatization of the travel industry, the union calls attention to the value of independent, unique and owner-led hospitality establishments. Fogo Island Inn continues to be a pillar of economic development for its community, and the Relais & Châteaux association offers a global network of places that practice hospitality that genuinely values local nature and culture.

Fogo Island Inn and Relais & Châteaux also share the belief that food is a powerful expression of culture. As contemporary interpreters of Fogo Island’s history and traditions, Fogo Island Inn’s culinary team innovates with hyper-local produce and seafood and pays homage to traditional out port Newfoundland foodways. With Relais & Châteaux, the Inn joins a collective of some of the best tables in the world that honour and preserve place through cuisine.

Fogo Island Inn will be the first Relais & Châteaux partner from Newfoundland, joining British Columbia, Alberta, Quebec, and Ontario as Canadian leaders forging an international reputation for world-class hospitality.

“The reputation Relais & Châteaux carries complements Fogo Island Inn’s commitment to care for people and place,” says Amanda Decker-Penton, managing director at Fogo Island Inn. “Through this partnership, the Inn looks forward to welcoming new conscious travellers who value human connections and culture in the magic of remote places.”
