6 of the best luxury nature and eco resorts
Sometimes it can be tough to unwind knowing that you might be having a negative impact on the environment. Stay green on your next vacation away from your superyacht by heading to these eco-friendly resorts in some of the world’s most beautiful coastal locations.
1. Pantrepant, Jamaica
Pantrepant is a beautiful 700 acre private farm, boasting nearly 60 varieties of fruit, vegetables and herbs as well as honeybees, dairy cows, sheep, donkeys and horses. Aside from providing the produce for nearby Island Outpost hotels Strawberry Hill, The Caves and GoldenEye, up to four guests of the hotels can stay in the luxurious cottage on site.
The property diverts a huge amount of recyclable products from landfill, composts everything possible and saves both money and energy by using solar power.
Guests will be able to go for a swim in the farm's natural water hole, go horseriding and even participate in hands-on farming experiences. Additionally, visitors can opt for sunrise yoga classes and spa treatments before heading out into the grounds to hike the stunning nature trails, stopping off to marvel at caves, forests and freshwater rivers.
Save time to experience meals at the Jamaican Country Kitchen, where the chef will whip up traditional favourites and culinary triumphs throughout the day.
As this is a very remote destination, arriving by helicopter is advisable — Pantrepant is 50 minutes from GoldenEye, 75 minutes from Strawberry Hill and 45 minutes from The Caves.
