Sustainable hotels – editor’s picks:
Hotels and resorts which we’ve visited and experienced first hand and recommend for the exceptional and unique experiences they are providing:
Príncipe Island | Travel south from Ghana or West from Angola you’ll find the tiny African island state of Sao Tomé & Príncipe. The smaller of the two islands which compose this country, Príncipe is an ecotourism paradise – and Bom Bom Principe a lodging experience you won’t forget.
Peru | A National Geographic Unique Lodge of the World, Inkaterra Macchu Pichu Pueblo is a resort-style hotel unlike any you may have experienced. Right in the middle of lush rainforest, with hundres of orchidea, colibri and other flora and fauna to be enjoyed. The perfect base for exploring the Macchu Pichu heritage site.
Peru | A National Geographic Unique Lodge of the World, this upscale, boutique lodging in the Andean capital Cuso is an experience not to be missed. Few rooms, outstanding hospitality. Luxurious and at the same time down to earth.
Morocco | Up in the Atlas mountains and integrated in a typical berber village, Kasbah du Toubkal is an ecolodge with a view to die for. Princes have stayed here and so should you. The food is delicious and the installations are comfortable but not fancy, allowing for an authentic experience, being hosted by locals.
Switzerland | With a long history of catering to mostly Swiss travelers, Schweizerhof Lenzerheide celebrates local heritage and regional cuisine. Champions in offering relaxing and memorable experiences in alpine Switzerland for families and outdoor enthusiasts.
Finca de Arrieta Eco Village
Lanzarote, Spain | Finca de Arrieta Eco Village is the flagship sustainable accommodation by Lanzarote Retreats, a family-run business on the Canary island of Lanzarote, with strong focus on responsible practices. Have you ever slept in a yurt, just a couple of minutes away from a great beach for surfing and swimming? This is the place!
