Lux Eco Lodges

My story on eco lodges is up at ForbesTraveler.com (MSNBC.com and the Today Show’s website

also picked up the story). This article focuses on high-end resorts

with an eco angle, from environmental conservation to light-on-the-land

building techniques to the embracing of local culture.

 

 

Going green is not a new concept in the world of travel. For decades,

resorts like Maho Bay in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Turtle Island in

Fiji have demonstrated that eco-awareness and sustainability can

coexist with tourism. But in the past five years, the “eco” buzz has

been amplified within the travel industry—and throughout popular

culture as well.

 

 

 

 

 

If you’re going to spend the cash for a lux getaway, you might as

well do it with some conscious. This Top 10 list includes resorts with

thatch-roofed huts on a beach to cabins afloat on raft foundations in

fjords. Their structures are influenced by sources as diverse as

Robinson Caruso and Renzo Piano.
