Green Retreats

by Matthew Link

Yes, yes, Mr. Gore, of course we all want to do our part for the environment. But the inconvenient truth is that we're loath to trade in our resort's 1,000-thread-count bed sheets for rough-woven ones that feel like burlap. Perhaps we're asking for a lot, but aren't there hotels that are environmentally friendly and still sinfully sumptuous? The answer is yes: We've found nine eco-lodges that are as firmly committed to sustainable, eco-sensitive tourism as they are to spa treatments and gourmet cuisine. So drop into one of these green retreats—and check your guilt at the door.
