Go Green, in Luxury: 5 Eco-Friendly Villas

We’re celebrating Earth Day by showcasing our top eco-friendly villas.

April 22 is Earth Day, and that inspired us to highlight a few of our top eco-friendly villas, where luxury living is also environmentally conscious. These villas – in gorgeous spots like St. John, Costa Rica and Mexico – include features like solar panels, energy-efficient appliances and organic gardens, as well as private pools, spacious decks and onsite staff. Introduce yourself to eco-luxury and make your next vacation a green one!

Eco Serendib: Rendezvous Bay, St. John

This luxury spa retreat has found a way to incorporate eco-friendly elements almost everywhere, from the onsite organic garden where you can pick your own produce, to the recycled glass used in the mosaics surrounding the pool. Travel + Leisure even recognized this villa for its sustainability – as well as the extra-private, extra-scenic island location. View Eco Serendib >

Villa Mandarinas: Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

This multi-level 10-bedroom villa is completely powered by solar energy, allowing you to enjoy the infinity pool, outdoor kitchen, and pizza oven without being harmful to your beautiful hillside surroundings. You’ll likely spend all your time outside anyway, in the tidepool, on your private pier, or around the fire pit. View Villa Mandarinas >

Breeze: Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Eco-luxury reigns at this jungle hideaway. Breeze has a sustainable green roofing system that reduces storm water runoff, and the breezes from these water features help to cool the villa naturally. Complete your Costa Rican adventure with nearby outings and activities, a pool and outdoor shower, and outdoor dining. View Breeze >

Stargazer: Providenciales, Turks and Caicos

You won’t be the only one soaking up the Caribbean sun at this beachfront villa with solar panels. The gated, very private estate also has its own fruit trees. But it’s not skimping on luxe extras: you’ll have a tennis court, two pools, secret grotto, chef, sauna, and even a dance studio. View Stargazer >

Hacienda Chekul: Riviera Maya, Mexico

You can relax while your villa does the work: this self-sufficient beach house uses solar and wind power systems to bring you modern comforts, including air conditioning. Your getaway will also include drinks on your rooftop terrace, a dip in the infinity pool, and a full onsite staff. Happy Earth Day! View Hacienda Chekul >
