The demand of the Eco tourist is rising fast and hotels around the world are becoming aware of this genre of tourism and becoming greener to both save the earth and attract these tourists.Thankfully the hoteliers on the island of Curacao have listened to this rise in demand and are not an exception to the rule anymore.
In my research in finding the top eco-friendly hotels on the island , I found that except for hotels there are many other companies that have invested in making their company and therefore Curacao as eco-friendly as possible.Companies like Green Town Curacao ( http://www.greentowncuracao.com/) CUNACO (http://www.curacaonature.org/), Eco Energy (http://www.ecoenergycuracao.net/) and many more are making it their daily business to make Curacao as green as possible. I am proud to say that the list of companies that are into “ going green” on the island is growing fast.
So read on for an overview of the top eco-friendly hotels on the island ( in random order ) :
The Natural Curacao
This small scale resort in Curacao offers various bungalows made out of eco-friendly materials.These brand new bungalows are situated on top of a hill which as you imagine offers cool wind and therefore air conditioning is not needed.Solar panels, a water recycling system and a battery backup system instead of a generator are all reasons to add the Natural Curacao to the list of Top Eco Friendly hotels on the island.
