The Most Luxe Eco-Friendly Hotels in the World
From a South African safari to a Costa Rican paradise, these properties make a case for going green

Calilo in Greece
This stunning Grecian hotel and spa is a paradise, yes, but president Vassiliki Petridou works hard to maintain the verdant utopia. Their Elektra project, for instance, saved the 500 centuries-old olive trees on the property, and over 41,000 newly-planted trees and bushes line the pathways. Swim leisurely in one of the private pools, knowing it is heated by solar and geothermal energy (your post-swim shower will be as well). A more all-encompassing spa will open on the property in 2020, but in the meantime, Calilo offers a range of outdoor spa treatments that integrate the elements, whether it’s in a shaded cave or on the shores of the cerulean Mediterranean sea.
