ECO CHIC BOUTIQUE HOTELS, B&Bs AND LUXURY HOUSES

When you are faced with the the striking scenery of the Great Thar Desert, home to boutique hotel The Serai Jaisalmer, you can understand why the owners have so conscientiously ensured the least impact on their surroundings as possible and made sure that their property blends with the natural surroundings.

Take Coconut Creek in Goa, India which has a sustainable vision - there’s a recycling programme, water-saving measures in place and staff use non-toxic cleaning products - that doesn’t compromise on guest experience.

Many of our eco boutique hotels have a story behind them and an owner passionate about the environment. At Barbialla Nuova in Tuscany, it was Guido Manfredi Rasponi who decided to take the estate that had been in his family for generations and rally a group of friends to help him transform the organic farm into an eco-sensitive agriturismo with self-catering apartments. Fast forward 10 years and you’ll find solar panels, filtered water and wood burning furnaces in the 7 apartments and 1,200 acres of still organic land.

At Casa Talia in ancient city of Modica in south east Sicily, it’s the traditional Sicilian materials and methods used to restore the collection of small houses that is so considerate towards the environment (the vibe here is all about zoning out and slowing down). Rustic Don Enrique in Northern Argentina has been built using wood from the local area and all the fruit and vegetables you eat are from the garden, while Ilha de Toque Toque in Sao Sebastio in Brazil was created from eco bricks, eucalyptus and demolition wood.

Some of our eco boutique hotels, such as Grail Springs in Bancroft, Canada and Eremito in Umbria, Italy, are as concerned with your holistic balance and spiritual well-being as they are the environment. Others, like the Galapagos Safari Camp on the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador fit perfectly into an already well-established remarkable eco system (only 3 percent of the landmass is inhabited). What they all have in common is a love of the simple things in life: delicious food, an appreciation of nature and good living.

It is out of sheer respect for the environment that these small boutique hotels have been conceived, maintaining the luxury, service and style you would expect of a Chic Retreat while working to minimise their environmental impact, so browse our collection to find your top environmentally-friendly luxury hotel.
