According to research firm GlobalData, veganism in the US grew by a whopping 600% from 2014 to 2017, with vegans now making up 6% of the population. Based on this data, it’s no surprise that we are seeing a new crop of fully vegan hotels sprouting up all over the world. From the plant-based menus to the vegan furnishings, these hotels offer guests a completely animal-free experience.

Saorsa 1875, Scotland, UK

Everything from arrival to departure is vegan at Scotland’s Saorsa 1875, a 19th-century Victorian mansion featuring 11 rooms furnished with bed linens made from organic cotton, and pillows and duvets free from animal products such as silk and down. The vegan ethos also applies to toiletries and cleaning products, while staff uniforms are ethically sourced. Electricity even comes courtesy of UK green energy company Ecotricity, which is vegan-certified. Naturally, the menu at Saorsa 1875’s restaurant is 100% plant-based too.
