Sustainable hotels around the world


You are a traveller and at the same time, a fervent advocate of the environment, it is quite normal that when choosing to book your accommodation, you wish to remain ecological!

Sus. live will take you on a journey to discover new sustainable hotels.


1. Bambu Indah, BALI

Bambu Indah is a must-see for every eco-friendly traveller visiting Bali. This location is the ideal blend of off-grid living and a high-end hotel. Imagine waking up to the sounds of cool spring waterfalls and pristine nature before spending the day exploring the tropical jungle, reclining in riverside hammocks, grazing on the permaculture farm, and even cleaning local buffalo. Yes, dear eco-friendly travellers, you'll want to stay in this pure natural bliss indefinitely.

2. Finch Bay Hotel, Galápagos

The luxurious Finch Bay Hotel in Galapagos is regarded as the region's most environmentally friendly hotel. This is since the company's entire business is based on the utmost regard for nature. Solar panels provide the majority of the electricity, which is rather impressive.


3. The Hideout, Koh Yao Noi, THAILAND

The Hideout on Koh Yao Noi is a 30-minute boat journey from Phuket and is situated on a former cashew farm. It comprises four suites in open-air cabanas, all created from locally available sustainable materials. Spend time in the infinity saltwater pool, dine on delicacies cooked with local ingredients, and unplug in this electricity-free resort where the island breeze will keep you cool.

4. Mashpi Lodge, Pichincha

This is one of the most enjoyable spots to visit throughout the summer. It was constructed in the heart of the forest to create a unique and natural experience for interested and other visitors. You'll get a chance to see and enjoy its rare fauna and flora.

5. Adrère Amellal, EGYPT

Do you dream you could find a place where you could unplug from the outer world to reconnect with nature? This is the kind of emotion you get when you visit Adrère Amellal, which is located near the Siwa salt lakes. There is no power and the property is lit by gas lamps, candles, and the moon, so you can dine under the stars. The hotel's architecture is composed of kershaf, a traditional clay, sand, and salt mixture, and all of the hotel's cuisine is grown in its gardens. One of our favourites is the natural spring pool, which is surrounded by a palm grove.


6. The Kip, Sri Lanka

The terms "innovative, creative, and atypical" come to mind while describing this authentic Sri Lankan location.

This four-room B&B, which was once a fisherman's home, aspires to return to a more conscientious lifestyle. You can go surfing in the morning before dining at the popular on-site café, which is surrounded by jungle and just feet from the beach. As you fall asleep to the sound of waves breaking on the shore, expect comfortable mattresses and contemporary décor.

7. Treehotel, Sweden

Treehotel is an environmentally friendly hotel complex that allows you to live out your childhood fantasies. During your stay, you will be accommodated in a tree-strewn room with a breathtaking view of a river. It's one-of-a-kind and luxurious!

8. Pench Tree Lodge, INDIA

This eco-friendly hotel provides ethical glamping experiences, which will appeal to wildlife enthusiasts. Each of the 12 treehouses and cottage resorts is built from natural resources, including sal wood, and is located just 20 minutes from Pench National Park in Madhya Pradesh.

Take a soak in the pool and discover more about the surrounding flora and animals while tucked within 40 acres of forest.

9. Song Saa Private Island, CAMBODIA

Song Saa Private Island, the apex of ecological design, demonstrates that luxury and environmental responsibility can coexist. Crafted from salvaged lumber and materials from Cambodia itself, the design for the tropical retreat was the vision of Melita Koulmandas Hunter.

Driftwood is transformed into tables, rescued wood from destroyed fishing boats is transformed into floorboards, and even ancient oil barrels are recycled as functional products like lamps in each house.

The purpose-built sewage and irrigation system, which recycles 100 percent of the waste generated, is a particularly stunning and unique feature of the green resort. The water is subsequently cleaned at a custom-built wastewater treatment facility, and the grey water is used for irrigation while the black water is recycled.

Song Saa Private Island's food program, too, is environmentally conscious. The resort collaborates with a local fisherman who uses environmentally friendly fishing practices, and the majority of the veggies are grown on-site. Never before has the colour green looked so good.

10. Laucala Island, FIJI

We believe that being 86 percent self-sufficient qualifies you for a spot on the list of the world's most sustainable hotels. Laucala Island, a private island in beautiful Fiji, is 12 square kilometres in size, with 25 houses and 240 acres of farming. The majority of the food served at this hotel is homegrown, with the hotel growing its vegetables, herbs, and fruit, as well as breeding its cattle, pigs, goats, and ducks.

Some villas are nestled among the crops, while others are surrounded by jungle or perched above the water. Each location was built using natural materials, and inside, locally grown rain trees were used for countertops, doors, and turned-wood handles.

This opulent resort's commitment to environmental stewardship extends into the future.

The luxury resort's commitment to sustainability extends to the spa. The hotel's four signature scents are created with locally cultivated herbs, spices, and flowers, while body scrubs are made from volcanic soil.

While the concept of sustainable hotels may appear to be an oxymoron at first, most new-build establishments are including it in their design. Hoteliers around the world are focusing on using environmentally friendly materials, planting gardens with fresh vegetables, and creating grey water recycling facilities, as well as eliminating customary in-room amenities like plastic water bottles, toothbrushes, and shampoos. Fortunately, several forward-thinking and sustainable establishments have already figured this out.
