With the world’s attention focussed on climate change, an increasing demand from environmentally-conscious travellers has meant that a lot of properties are approaching building and energy consumption in a new, eco-friendly way.
Here is our selection of villas that focus on being kind to the planet, as well as their guests.
Residence 4 at Six Senses Zil Pasyon
Up to 8 guests
The Seychelles is considered a paradise on earth. It is with this in mind that the Six Senses villa has a strong sustainability system in place that is focussed not only on habitat preservation but also on restoration. Solar energy is harvested for use across the island, the grey waters are recycled for irrigation, and the air conditioning is guaranteed low-impact.
This 4-bedroom villa also boasts natural architecture; it seems to spring from the island rocks to offer its guests unforgettable views, plenty of amenities, and an amazing 5-star service.
A private island is luxury at its finest, but Over Yonder Cay offers much more than this with its true commitment to preserving nature. Wind and solar power, together with a battery storage system, provide an average of 96% of the energy needed to run the property. Excess energy is used for irrigation and drinking water, greatly reducing waste.
All of this is done to help preserve the wonderful natural environment of the Bahamas, at the same time as providing an exceptional experience for truly discerning guests.
Nestled in a quiet corner of the glamorous ski resort of Verbier, the five-bedroom Chalet Rock boasts contemporary design features including a solar-powered heating and ventilation system which contribute to the cosy atmosphere of the property.
These eco-friendly facilities are complemented by a plethora of amenities such as a hot tub, games room, cinema room, and an integrated sound system. Guests can enjoy après ski drinks on the spacious terrace then indulge in sumptuous feasts cooked up by the private chef, accompanied by a selection of premium wines.
