Today, we have the privilege of sitting down with Lars and Bernd, the masterminds behind AQUA Organic, to gain deeper insights into their journey, their passions, and their perspectives on travel and conscious living.

1. What do you love most about traveling?

Lars and Bernd: Escaping the daily routine, having time for each other, and discovering new countries, hotels, and cultures.

2. How do you choose your travel destinations, and what is particularly important to you?

Lars and Bernd: We choose our travel destinations based on the season, climate, hotel facilities, and sports offerings. For several years now, the fitness and sports offerings at the hotel have been particularly important to us. Of course, the location is also crucial, and we place great value on a peaceful environment during our vacations.

3. What is your favorite vacation destination that you can never get enough of?

Lars and Bernd: South Africa, especially the Western Cape with its breathtaking nature, unique light, and incredibly friendly and open people. The hospitality is unbeatable, the culinary experience is delightful, and don’t even get us started on the wines. Moreover, the area boasts some of the world’s most beautiful golf courses.

4. Which hotel experience has impressed you the most and why?

Lars and Bernd: We’ve stayed in many different hotels worldwide, and each has its charm. However, we particularly enjoyed our time at the Mount Nelson in Cape Town. It’s an old “Grande Dame” from the colonial era, offering impeccable service in all areas. The impressive park with divine tranquility amidst the city is truly remarkable.

5. What is the one thing in your suitcase that you can’t travel without?

Lars and Bernd: That’s a tough question because there are so many things we bring along when traveling that we can’t do without. Lars always needs to have a “Flat Cap” for sun protection and his travel shaving kit. Bernd, on the other hand, can’t travel without his facial cream.

6. What does it mean to you to be conscious travelers?

Lars and Bernd: Choosing hotels that strive to be sustainable. Being conscious travelers encompasses various aspects, starting with the way you travel and ending with the choice of accommodation. Do I stay regional or take a long-distance trip? Do I go on a cruise or travel by train, car, or plane? How often do I travel? Everyone must find the right balance for themselves.

7. What tips would you give for positively impacting your daily life?

Lars and Bernd: Live in the present moment. Think positively. Try to keep your mind and body fit.
