Eco-resorts are popping all across the globe — some more laid-back and rustic; others embracing high-end luxury. Many notable eco-resorts have made their home around some of the most raw, undisturbed places on Earth. You may think that building a resort in a pristine setting is an oxymoron, but it could actually benefit the surrounding local communities and wildlife when money is used to provide economic opportunities and protection for endangered habitats. As climate change and an exploding population continue to reek havoc on the planet, more and more hospitality companies are adopting socially responsible business plans. These six luxury resorts have begun doing their part and let’s hope others will follow suit.
-The hotel has an organic vegetable garden and orchard (using permaculture principals); a hydroponic garden; a mushroom cultivation hut where they grow oyster and woodear mushrooms on sawdust; and “green” waste management, chemical and energy programs
-It sponsors programs for intelligent consumption of energy, water, reutilization of waste, compost production from waste, the rescue of endemic species, the regeneration of forest zones, and the protection of national parks and maritime zones.
-The hotel is situated in a lush nature reserve, away from the touristy center of Manuel Antonio.
