Located in breathtaking natural sites, these establishments take care to reduce waste, save energy, and support local initiatives. Some even invest in forest preservation to maintain a wildlife corridor for the native fauna.
To promote economic development and education, they're also committed to hiring people from local communities. Some of these establishments rely on solar energy, and they're particularly strict about the use of water from local springs.
