The Seven Best Eco Resorts

An eco-friendly vacation doesn’t have to mean camping. More hotels are taking extraordinary measures to balance sustainability and luxury – stay at these green hotels with a clear conscience

Visit Soneva Kiri in Koh Kut, Thailand for tree-top dining and infinity pools

There’s no ignoring the fact that visiting remote destinations has a big environmental impact. Global air travel accounts for two percent of all human-created CO2 emissions. Consequently, ecotourism is on t he rise as more of us look f or ways t o enjoy t raveling, while ensuring we leave somet hing of a planet for future generations to enjoy.

An eco-friendly vacation no longer has to mean sleeping under tents in the middle of nowhere and peeing behind a bush. Global hotel chains are increasingly eco-aware, and are taking extraordinary measures to balance sustainability and luxury.

These hotels around the world are going above and beyond with their sustainability initiatives:

Soneva, Koh Kood,Thailand and The Maldives

Soneva luxury resorts in Thailand and the Maldives subscribe to SLOW LIFE (Sustainable-Local- Organic-Wellness Learning-Inspiring-Fun-Experiences). They work hard to use sustainable materials, recycle waste, conserve water and preserve ecosystems. They work with organizations such

as Whole World Water to reduce the need for water in plastic bottles, and include eco features like tree-top dining and an eco-den for children. Prices for a one-bed villa start at around $1,600 per night plus a two per cent carbon tax. Celebrity guests have included Paul McCartney and Madonna.

Hotel Skyler, Syracuse, NY

Converted from a former Jewish temple, this attractive 58-room boutique hotel in the New York University Hill district is only the third US hotel to achieve a LEED Platinum rating (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design certification is a badge of honor in the US). Using organic fabrics and low-emissions carpets and upholstery, and with 20 per cent of its building materials locally sourced, the hotel has made every effort to reduce its environmental impact. Heating and cooling is provided by a massive geothermal heat pump. They hope guests will play their part by reducing linen and towel changes, and by dividing trash in the room. A King Room costs around $199 per night.
