Reka has always been committed
 to the common good

Added value instead of profit 

As a cooperative, Reka does not distribute profits. In line with our guiding principle, we invest the freely-disposable funds we generate in Reka Money, in our Reka Foundation for Holiday Aid and in climate protection. We follow a non-profit principle and provide our services from an economic, ecological and social point of view for the benefit of all parties involved and in consideration of future generations. Together with our employees, partners and customers, we create added value for society and are committed to the environment.

Qualitative services

  • In our holiday offer we focus on families, because they are economically more challenged than other groups. Due to many years of experience we know the needs and are constantly expanding our range.
  • The discounted Reka Money system generates an additional consumption of CHF 100 million per year. This helps promote the Swiss economy in the leisure and tourism sector.
  • Most of our own holiday resorts are located away from the busy Swiss tourist centres and thus contribute to the local economy.
  • We bring guests to the tourist regions even in the off-season and are a reliable service provider. To this end, we have steadily expanded our range of products in recent years.

Our Reka Foundation for Holiday Aid makes dreams come true

Holidays are important for the social development of children and for connecting the family. Through the Reka Foundation for Holiday Aid, we offer economically and socially disadvantaged families highly discounted holidays at a Reka holiday resort or partner company in Switzerland. Every year, more than 3,000 people benefit from this, especially single parents and their children.

More handicap accessibility while on holiday

Reka Holiday Villages have always been meeting places. That’s why it's important to make them accessible to as many people as possible. At least 50 per cent of our holiday resorts in Switzerland are set to be handicap acces-sible by 2022. We use renovation and new construction projects to remove physical barriers to housing, access roads, playgrounds and other areas. We are actively supported in this by the Denk an mich Foundation. Together we would like to play a pioneering role in tourism and offer far more than just physical freedom from obstacles.

Reka Holiday Villages become handicap accessible

The Denk an mich Foundation has been involved in the areas of holidays, leisure, education and mobility for people with disabilities since 1968. It is committed to ensuring that these people can enjoy an autonomous social life. Together with Denk an mich we make Reka Holiday Villages handicap accessible. In addition to structural measures, we also provide staff training and access to information on handicap accessibility and the booking process.

Off-road wheelchair for the beach

The Stiftung Cerebral (Cerebral Foundation) supports over 9,500 families with members affected by cerebral palsy throughout Switzerland. The Foundation is committed to helping people with cerebral movement impair-ment to live as independently and carefree and with as much mobility as possible and to enjoy nature. That is why they have sponsored an off-road wheelchair, the JST Multidrive, for our Golfo del Sole resort. It even moves through fine-grained sand without any problems.

Responsible action and building 

Travel results in resource consumption. We have always tried to limit this. Already in the past, when choosing the location of Reka Holiday Villages, care was taken to ensure that they were easily accessible by public transport. We have set ourselves ambitious goals with regard to the construction and energy consumption of our new holiday resorts. New facilities are built in accordance with the SIA Energy Efficiency Path. With the two Minergie buildings in Urnäsch and Disentis, we have already implemented two systems that meet this standard. By 2022, further holiday resorts are to be converted to renewable energy sources as part of the planned new construction. 

Already 70 per cent of the heat that was still being produced from fossil fuels in the Reka Holiday Villages in 2010 is now generated from renewable energies. Eight out of twelve Reka Holiday Villages generate their heating entirely from wood, geothermal or solar energy. We also obtain our electricity exclusively from renewable sources. However, we are particularly proud of our Blatten-Belalp Holiday Village with its future-oriented energy concept. The Swiss Federal Office of Energy even defines this as a flagship project. The holiday village was opened in 2014 and illustrates how a holiday resort can be practically self-sufficient in terms of energy, even in the Alpine region. The facility produces all of its heat energy and 70 per cent of the electricity it needs from solar energy and geothermal energy.

On the way to becoming the most sustainable holiday provider in Switzerland 

For us, sustainability is part of our DNA and means a sense of responsibility for tomorrow and all the days that come after tomorrow. We are consistently pursuing the path to CO2 neutrality and work every day to reduce our ecological footprint. As part of our sustainability strategy, we are renovating our holiday resorts and are making constant efforts to reduce the consumption of energy and resources. 

Book your climate-neutral Reka holidays

Holidays in nature are the best way to relax. That’s why we need your help to protect the environment, so that future generations can also recharge in nature. Thanks to the "Cause We Care" initiative from myclimate, you have the opportunity to make a climate contribution when you book Reka holidays. And it is even worth it twice over, because we’ll double your contribution. 

Your climate contribution

When booking Reka holidays, you have the option of donating an additional one per cent of your booking amount to the "Cause We Care" initiative from myclimate.

We are doubling

If you make a contribution to climate protection, it will count double. That’s because we’ll match whatever you donate and invest it in the "Cause We Care" fund.

CO2 compensation

From the fund, we’ll offset the CO2 emissions related to your stay through myclimate carbon offset projects. We’ll also invest in our local climate protection and sustainability measures.
