Each year, Conde Nast Traveler publishes its annual hot list detailing the best of the best of the posh, sexy, and generally impressive new hotels around the world from the last year. 2012’s Hot List betrays an increasingly pervasive trend in luxury resorts: sustainability.
A major part of planning a trip is deciding where you’ll lay your head at night, so travelers normally spend a decent amount of time choosing accommodations. While the majority of travelers will head right to hotel chains, there are other, greener, options.
Late last year, Lonely Planet released their must-visit destination list for 2011, and although we’re half way through the year already we thought we’d take a look at the list and see what each of the chosen hotspots offers in terms of ecotourism and green stays, so you can plan your trip accordingly.
Travellers are spoilt for choice these days when choosing environmentally responsible and sustainable locations to vacation, so deciding where to go can be difficult. Here we present five of the top eco resorts worldwide that boast some of the best renewable technologies, making them true green stays, and your decision a whole lot easier.
