why choose to stay in ecohotel properties ?
- A high proportion of properties listed on ecohotel have won major Australian tourism awards, including luxury accommodation, indicating that operators who look after the environment are often the same ones who go to great lengths to look after their guests. Just take a look at all the awards won by ecohotel properties! The properties on ecohotel defy preconceived notions that staying in "green" accommodation means a lessening of standards.
- Properties on the ecohotel website are all taking environmentally friendly steps, whether water or energy conservation, recycling, or reducing the consumption of natural resources through bulk amenities and eco friendly cleaning. This means less waste of the world's precious resources for you and future generations and cost savings which can be passed on to you!
- Ecohotel properties provide facilities to enable guests to minimize energy use, conserve water, recycle,and reduce waste.
- Building any type of accommodation facility in an eco-sensitive area means that the local ecosystem may be damaged or even destroyed, if not done with great care. This impacts on animals, native flora, soil systems and air and water quality - and it is then necessary to bring in other resources to supply the needs of the resort. Ecohotel properties situated in vulnerable areas have undertaken environmental management plans to minimize this impact and to contribute as positively as they can to rehabilitation and landcare programs.
