People With A Passion
The Cayuga Way
At the Cayuga Collection, we work exclusively with extraordinary people. We hire 100% of our employees from the local area – every one of them has a dedicated passion for hospitality and a true appreciation for The Cayuga Way. More than colleagues, they’re our community, our biggest champions for sustainability, and the lifeblood of our Collection.
Our hotels and lodges pride themselves on their commitment to offering authentic service. And by offering our employees the opportunity to develop both professionally and personally, we’ve created a warm and inspiring culture that our staff loves and our guests feel from the very moment they check in.

Our employees are memorable characters too, bringing plenty of personality to their roles and providing a window into the local culture. They welcome guests as if they were family and always have a story or two to tell – for many, it’s these fascinating conversations and experiences shared with locals that make stays with us truly special.

Opportunities For Growth
We Invest in
We believe that skills can be taught — but nothing beats that sparkle in the eye. From there, we find it’s easy to invest in our staff to help them reach their full potential.
Many of our staff come from humble beginnings, but we’ve proven that when we can provide professional growth, offer ongoing training, promote internally, and fuel their desire to grow — incredible things can happen.
We were honored with the 2018 People Award by the World Travel & Tourism Council, Tourism for Tomorrow Awards, for our commitment to improving career opportunities in the locations we operate.
Hospitality With Personality
“This hotel is not really a hotel, it is much more than that. It’s intimate, charming, impressive, welcoming and truly fantastic. Every day the sunset is a surreal event – this alone is worth staying here. However what really sets Kurà apart is the people. The service is unbelievable, you feel like you’re surrounded by friends and that’s something I’ve never experienced before at any other hotel. For me, this is what brings Kurà to another level.”
