Luxury Eco Getaways

6 July 2022

Eco-consciousness has become much more than just a movement; it's part of our day-to-day. More of us are looking for ways we can enjoy life without having to compromise on our planet promises. Let's consider holidays; nowadays many luxury getaways not only deliver on sustainability, but will also inspire some new ways of eco-conscious living. Here are just a few that have piqued our interest.

Jewting is a jewel in the ecotourism sphere and one worth exploring.

Bringing together the local community and environment to support a thriving getaway, Mashpi Lodge is the place to explore and discover the natural environment of Choco-Andean rainforest and its 400 species of bird, frogs, trees and endemic species. The construction of this resort was so carefully planned that not a single tree was removed, and the local residents of surrounding communities can be part of the shareholders scheme to help build a resort with sustainability at its core.

Bambu Indah - Bali
A jungle retreat with the luxury of a hotel service, Bambu Indah combines the vibrance and power of its natural jungle surroundings and fuses that with all the convenience of a hotel styled service complete with daily yoga classes and fine candlelit dining at the majestic Minang House which overlooks the river valley. The hand-carved teak houses and bamboo huts utilise the natural elements for their construction which is mirrored in the use of their naturally derived swimming pools. 

So we needn't compromise on our next getaway; we can combine luxury experiences with sustainable living while we're there.
