Soon you will have a choice of traveling to the Caribbean instead of Latin America if you want to stay in a green resort.
Star Island (an acronym for Sustainable Terrain and Resources) in the Bahamas will be opening next Fall with 60-70 rooms, as an exotic green luxury resort and home site development which aims to be completely sustainable and carbon neutral. Whether you want a vacation in a hotel, or a vacation home, the on site amenities include a pool, spa, and gourmet dining for all guests and owners. Their restaurants and markets will feature local produce, organic products, and fair trade coffee, keeping the green theme in everyday practice. The bungalows all have waterfront views and private plunge pools; the hotel villas each feature infinity pools, full kitchens and living rooms, and the home sites even include personal docks.
All of us are awaiting the unveiling, repeating the mantra, "Open open, open."
