Fab Eco Travel: Luxury Eco Resorts

co travel is all the rage, but some hotels are greener than others. If you really want to go luxury green traveling, make sure you book an eco resort that truly adheres to eco friendly standards. This means initiatives beyond energy-efficient lightbulbs and low-flow toilets. I'm talking about the real eco resorts that are made from all natural and local materials, grow and serve organic food, use solar energy and implement a full scale recycle program. Sure, it doesn't sound glamorous but you'd be surprised how incredibly inviting these all-natural eco lodges can be. Take a look at some of my top picks for eco resorts from around the world:

La Cocotera Resort - La Barra de Santiago, El Salvador

La Cocotera is a picturesque green hotel in El Salvador designed for those who seek simple luxury and peaceful relaxation. The adorable thatch roof bungalows are mere steps away from the beach, and the beach hammocks that line the premises don't hurt either. For animal lovers, La Cocotera also sponsers a Turtle Release Program for the Olive Ridley sea turtle. Yes, you get to release baby sea turtles into the ocean!

Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa - Queensland, Australia

When I think eco resort, I think beach...but I also think tree tops. Being one with nature is definitely a priority for this breathtaking eco resort. The fifteen villas are nestled into the rainforest in tree house-style and really look like something out of a movie. Ever wanted a massage in the jungle? You can make it happen at Daintree.

Longitude 131° - Northern Territory, Australia

Yay Australia! One look at this picture and you'll know why this made my list of favorites. The fifteen tents are actually on steel stilts to leave the desert sands beneath undisturbed. It may be in the desert, but the accommodations don't skimp on the luxury. Since you're basically out in the middle of nowhere, you really have some time to relax and wonder at the beauty of the Australian outback.

Soneva Fushi by Six Senses - Maldives

If you love pristine beaches and clear blue ocean, Soneva Fushi is the only place you need to go. The resort offers 65 accommodations that are beach luxury at its finest. Each villa opens to its very own stretch of white sand beach just a few steps away, and some even include Private Sea Water Swimming Pools.
