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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Saffire Freycinet Hotel is committed to sustainability but doesn't lack in luxury. You can also choose special Tasmanian holiday packages which will show you the natural beauties of the East Coast of Tasmania. Enjoy a romantic getaway, food and wine and relax all your senses there.
