Sustainability extends to the culinary offerings at Lesante Cape. All fish served in the restaurants is responsibly sourced from local fishermen, fostering a connection with the community and supporting sustainable fishing practices. Many herbs and vegetables used in dishes are cultivated right on the premises in the onsite organic garden, ensuring freshness and reducing the carbon footprint associated with transportation.

The resort's energy sources are also eco-friendly, with solar panels utilized throughout the property to harness renewable energy. Furthermore, Lesante Cape is committed to reducing plastic usage by substituting biodegradable materials whenever possible, showcasing a dedication to minimizing environmental impact. In these ways, Lesante Cape stands as a beacon of eco-consciousness and sustainability in the hospitality industry.
