The Whitepod, Switzerland
This eco-resort is one of the best luxury hubs the world has to offer. This place is inspired by the atmosphere of the Swiss Alps, with dome shaped pods to properly round off your experience (pun intended). Staying at this eco-resort will be like nothing you’ve ever experienced before, as not only do you have the stunning view of the Lake Geneva nearby, but the furniture is of the highest quality. Plus, of course, it’s important to remember the eco aspect, with wood stoves and eco-friendly insulation, you can relax guilt-free.
This place takes an eco-friendly approach seriously, as the hotel is partly powered by solar power, as well as the timber used for the construction origination from reforestation areas. Despite all of the recycling, however, your experience at Kiaroa will be extremely luxury, as you have the opportunity to go on boat rides across the sapphire blue sea, as well as simply chilling out by the Kiaroa pool and soaking up the hot Brazilian waves. If you really want some peace and quiet, you can rent out your own bungalow with private pool, too.
Anse Chastanet, St. Lucia
Architect owner Nick Troubetzkoy believes passionately in nature. So he created a hotel that makes the foliage and the flowers, the perfumes and the peaks, the sea and the bird song an integral part of your vacation experience. The estate encompasses 600 lush tropical acres bordering two soft sand beaches. Not only do you get a World Heritage Site anchored by the twin peaks on land, the resort’s two crystal-clear bays are part of a designated marine reserve protecting miles of colorful coral reefs teeming with tropical fish. With such a unique setting as his canvas, Nick Troubetzkoy was inspired to design a one-of-a-kind resort. He was committed to an environmentally conscious development before “green” became fashionable. ANSE CHASTANET is St. Lucia's only resort property with the iconic view of both the Piti and Gros Piton mountains floating upon the Caribbean Sea.
