Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit


Grand service and amenities at this family-friendly oceanfront resort on Mexico's Gold Coast

Respect for the environment is a way of life at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. Eco-friendly practices permeate every process related to guest services and employees, including innovative water and energy-saving techniques, intensive separation of solid waste and full accountability for protecting the surrounding area. The resort has implemented a comprehensive Green Initiatives program which aspires to promote the conservation of natural resources. This results in a guest experience that is nothing less than extraordinary: a luxury resort that harmoniously coexists with its natural surroundings. Guests may notice the use of scented hand towels instead of paper products and multifunctional room entry cards to regulate electricity without compromising comfort. Grand Velas also features a range of less obvious measures such as solar heated water, biodegradable cleaning products, advanced air conditioning and the use of an internal combustion machine to avoid peak hours of energy consumption. Initiatives go beyond the resort's boundaries through community outreach, beach cleaning projects and participation in the federal sea turtle protection program.

Riviera Maya / Mayakoba

Banyan Tree Mayakoba


Luxury Riviera Maya retreat with spa, beach club

Melipona bees are a genus of stingless bees, several of which are kept for honey production and pollinators of the Mayan Jungle. Keeping Melipona bees has been a tradition for Maya communities for centuries, who believe the bees are imbued with a mystical power as messengers between the living world and the underworld; however these small bees have been in decline and are now threatened with extinction. Banyan Tree Mayakoba recently completed the second phase of its Melipona Bees: Mayan Legacy Project. Commencing in 2009, Phase One consisted of setting up a meliponary for the endangered community of bees located in Vida y Esperanza, 20km from the resort. Phase Two involved setting up a workshop to create handcrafted soaps using Melipona honey. The soaps are used as turn down gifts at the resort and for guests to purchase in the resort's gallery. Banyan Tree Mayakoba on the Riviera Maya, is 40 minutes from Cancun International Airport and within easy distance of three archaeological wonders - the Chichen Itza complex, Tulum seaside ruins, and Coba jungle temples. Featuring 107 pool villas, the resort preserves four eco-systems ^aEUR" the mangroves, dunes, low forests and coral reefs in which it is located in, and pays homage to 'Mayakoba' which means 'Village of Water' with villas built along the waterways and ocean front.

Treetops Lodge and Estate


Serene luxury lodge surrounded by pristine forest

The award-winning Treetops Lodge & Estate, located in the heart of New Zealand, is an elite lodge offering a uniquely New Zealand experience. This eco-friendly lodge (even its brochure is printed on 100% recycled paper), has an elegant, ecology-inspired architectural style derived from the country's pioneering past, with timber and stone finishes echoing the natural beauty and simplicity of the great outdoors. Particular attention was given to the design - high levels of insulation, heat recovery and recycling systems, double-glazing with low heat transmission glass, orientating the building to maximize sun collection. The lodge is totally self-sufficient and exports its surplus energy (approximately 50%) back to the grid due to the building of their own Micro Hydro system in the lodges' lakes. Fine cuisine that is prepared for guests uses locally-grown produce including sourcing and utilizing native herbs and ingredients found on the property that were traditionally used by Maori.
