Saturday is Earth Day – celebrate by exploring getaways that are both deluxe and environmentally friendly.
Our collection includes eco-friendly villas in locations like Belize, France, Jamaica, and beyond. Not only do these villas offer incredible luxury – private pools, staff, spas, tennis courts – they also include green features. You’ll find properties with solar power, organic gardens, reusable water systems, and more. Your green getaway starts here:
Villa Estrella, Costa Rica
Experience eco-tourism at its best in Costa Rica. Visit the many national parks and wildlife reserves, teeming with exotic wildlife and lush tropical forest land. Staying in a villa here means supporting local conservation efforts. For example, learn about their water recycling system – bath and kitchen water is commonly reused for things like irrigation.
At Villa Estrella, you’ll go green in serious luxury. This all-inclusive property includes amazing views of your natural surroundings, a full staff, infinity pool, home theater, stocked bar, and easy access to the beach with pristine waters for snorkeling, swimming, and more.
Oil Nut Bay, British Virgin Islands
Oil Nut Bay is a completely sustainable resort community on Virgin Gorda made up of five private properties. It was built entirely as a LEED-certified community, meaning each villa is extremely resource-efficient.
The Oil Nut Bay villas range from two- to six-bedroom homes and have private pools, outdoor living spaces, and beautiful views – most with waterfront locations as well. Plus, you’ll have exclusive access to the resort’s beach club, wellness studio, kids’ club, hiking trails, dining, and spa.
Necker Island, British Virgin Islands
This private island retreat isn’t just about exceptional luxury (although it is, in part). Necker Island is very focused on sustainable tourism. Current efforts include water and energy conservation, locally sourced food, waste reduction, and recycling/composting. The island is also installing wind and solar power and designing an organic garden.
Plan your stunning and sustainable Necker Island getaway – book an individual one-bedroom Balinese-style house, or the entire island for yourself. All meals and drinks are included. And that’s just the start: enjoy a full staff (even watersports instructors!), two freshwater pools, beaches, tennis courts, sailing equipment, kayaks, spa, and so much more.
