No words are needed to describe the beautiful sights of this location! The Six Senses in Vietnam provides its customers with the best views while taking care of this wild piece of nature. How?

Eco Travel in Tasmania: Saffire Freycinet.
This Australian accommodation is the fifth of our list and still as beautiful as the former hotels.

For those who had doubts, here we have the evidence that eco-friendly can perfectly mean beautiful. Actually, this accommodation is extremely appealing because of its green purposes. The Park Hyatt, in the Maldives, is built over the Indian Ocean in order to minimize the interaction with the natural environment. Amazing!
Eco Travel in Costa Rica: Lapa Rios Ecolodge.
Since deforestation is a real problem in the country of Costa Rica, this hotel can be considered eco-friendly due to its aim of protecting the 1,000 acres within its private reserve. This solution, along with many others, makes this place sustainable and one of our top 10 hotels. Moreover, the sights are incredible!
Eco Travel in Zambia: Sindabezi.
Sindabezi, located in Africa, is a great example of eco-friendly accommodation. Some reasons: the resort is run by solar power and all the cleaning products are biodegradable. Additionally, the wood used to build the small cabins is sustainably farmed and a special water system makes possible to save around 20,000 plastic water bottles per year. Impressively green and beautiful!
Eco Travel in Australia: Longitude 131.
This fancy hotel located in the north of Australia has everything anyone could image, despite the rough nature by which is surrounded: the desert. Instead of buildings, the main spaces can be found under tents (fact that is already eco-friendly). In addition, the whole accommodation uses solar power for lighting, along with other respectful solutions.
Eco Travel in France: Hi Hotel.
Although this hotel, located in Nice, is surrounded by a really different landscape, it also has eco-friendly initiatives that make it pretty special. Of course it does not protect the forest since it’s located far away from the wild nature, but some solutions such as offering organic food or using recycled paper also count when taking care of the planet. A green option in the middle of the city!
