Even though the term ecolodge might conjure up images of far-out, off-the-grid places with no hot water or real toilets, I'm happy to report that that's just not the case. Here are three spots where honeymooning goes hand in hand with helping out the environment.
Turtle Island Fiji has 14 luxurious private villas with hot tubs and outdoor showers. It's also Green Globe 21 certified, employs local people, spearheads a turtle-release program, and has planted more than 500,000 trees since its 1980 opening.
Nestled in the jungle of Costa Rica, Lapa Rios Rainforest Ecolodge has open-air thatched bungalows and gourmet cuisine like pumpkin and macadamia gnocchi. When it was built, the owners relied on local workers (paid a fair wage) and earth-friendly materials like bamboo. Today, the sustainability continues with solar panel-heated water and additional projects like wildcat conservation.
Tiamo Resort on South Andros Island in the Bahamas has swanky cottages with stone bathrooms, open-plan living spaces, and wet bars. It runs almost exclusively on solar power, has its own organic garden, and is constructed from sustainable pine.
