Eco-friendly Luxury in Oceania
Mar 20, 2020
Oceania's breathtaking islands are one of the most attractive tourist destinations in the world.
Still, if you want to be eco-responsible when you travel, some of the most luxurious hotels in Oceania are also sustainable.
You can find eco-friendly accommodation in some of these fascinating Oceania destinations:
The islands of Fiji have it all — white, sandy beaches, jungle waterfalls, coconut palms, and stunning landscapes. And let's not forget friendly local people who enjoy meeting tourists.
The luxury hotel chain Six Senses may be the most luxurious accommodation on Fiji but it's also the leader in eco-tourism. Their solar installations run on Tesla battery packs, while they also collect rainwater and store it in septic tanks. They also
have their own reverse osmosis plant, which allows them to supply drinking water for their guests. Six Senses even has an organic fruit and vegetable garden to be self-sustainable.
This little island offers dreamy beaches like Les Tipaniers Beach and Tema’e Beach, where you can enjoy sunsets with the locals and get lost while watching the horizon. You can even try out fun activities like kayaking in a glass-bottom boat
to explore coral gardens or visit the Lagoonarium, a protected area of the lagoon where you can feed fish and snorkel. No wonder this island is a great honeymoon idea.
Luxurious hotels on Moorea, such as Manava Suite Resort Tahiti and Manava Beach Resort & Spa Moorea, have started an environmental initiative, in an attempt to obtain EarthCheck certification. It will serve as proof that these hotels are completely committed to sustainability and low environmental impact.
3. Daintree Rainforest
This is a privately-owned rainforest in Australia, which has been listed on the World Heritage List and for a good reason. It is a beautiful area unspoiled by artificial structures, offering only stunning natural beauties.
In case you want to explore it, try checking in the Daintree Eco Lodge and Spa. It has so far won three awards — the ‘World’s Leading Eco Resort and Spa’, ‘World’s leading Eco-Lodge’ and ‘Australia’s
Leading Green Hotel’. And what's amazing is that it doesn't lack luxury — spa treatments, delicious food, pleasant staff, and a lot more.
4. New Zealand
New Zealand doesn't need a lot of introduction. It is a unique part of the world with many indigenous plants and animals, specific natural wonders and places. It simply has to be experienced. Even if you are accommodated in one place there, you should
travel to other parts.
Kimi Ora Eco Resort is a lovely resort where you can choose the level of luxury, ranging from self-contained wooden chalets to elegant spa suites. Organic products, solar water heating, and energy-efficient lighting are just some of the sustainability features there.
5. Lord Howe Island
If you are seeking truly unspoiled nature in a remote place of the world, then look no further. It's hard to find a more remote place in Australia.
Its unique beauty was awarded an international recognition when it was listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1982. The whalers and palm harvesters have been almost completely removed from there, allowing wildlife to thrive unthreatened.
Capella Lodge is a luxurious resort that fits perfectly into the wild beauty of the island. You will definitely be pampered in this resort and enjoy the local cuisine based on fresh food. You’ll also be impressed by the view as the resort is built
near the Lovers Bay, at the foot of the impressive mountain twins.
Hayman Island is truly one of Australia's loveliest regions; a perfect place for snorkeling, yachting, hiking, and camping. The Great Barrier Reef is close enough to make a short trip and enjoy this natural wonder.
The Hayman Island Resort is very close to the Reef and it has taken the matter of sustainability and eco-friendliness very seriously. After Cyclone Debbie demolished the place in 2017, the resort turned the situation into its advantage and refurbished
everything with a twist. Now, the hotel is incredibly modernized but also with a minimized environmental impact.
Besides the stunning beaches and wild beauty, Freycinet offers many exciting things to see and do. They include visiting the popular Freycinet Marine Farm, which grows succulent oysters around Coles Bay. If you visit its national park, you can experience
the splendid Wineglass Bay Lookout and take some amazing pictures.
Even if you are a true environmentalist, it doesn't mean you have to give up comfort and luxury. Oceania is a perfect part of the world for all those who enjoy natural beauty and have respect for wildlife. There, you can feel you are a part of nature
and find true peace. By visiting Oceania and staying in one of its eco-friendly hotels, you'll see that it's possible to be spoiled without spoiling nature.
