Eco hotel is a hotel or accommodation that has
made important environmental improvements to
its structure in order to minimize its impact on
the environment. The basic definition of a green
hotel is an environmentally responsible lodging
that follows the practices of green living. These
hotels have to be certified green by an independent
third-party or by the state they are located in.
Traditionally, these hotels were mostly presented as
Eco Lodges because of their location, often
in jungles, and their design inspired by the use of
traditional building methods applied by skilled
local craftsmen in areas.
Room rate: Rs 8,343
Green USP: The hotel group is 100% energy selfsufficient. It produces energy through its own windmills,
generating exactly as much energy as it requires. By
reducing the flow rate of bathroom showerheads and
washbasin taps from the standard 12-15 litre per minute
to 8-9 litre a minute has cut its water consumption by
Room rate: Rs 1,500
Green USP: The ethnic
cottages and thatched
tents blend into the
and make for an ideal
setting for 300 odd bird
species that inhabit the
cooking? Freshly caught
fish from the river
alongside, what else?
Room rate: Rs 7,783
Green USP: All the material used in building the hotel was
sourced locally. For instance, an abundance of the region's
eco-friendly brick red laterite stone can be seen throughout
the hotel. From the design stage, due consideration was
given to leaving the existing forest intact and conserving
the surrounding paddy fields. This makes the property a
bird watcher's paradise.
Room rate: Rs 9,647
Green USP: It is a zero garbage hotel, among the
first in the country to achieve this goal. The hotel
has an ongoing vermiculture project on site that
not only eliminates the garbage but also takes care
of the gardens in and around the hotel.
Room rate: Rs 6,300
Green USP: Organic, home-grown food, rustic
furniture that's mostly made from reclaimed wood,
and the energy and water conservation drives have
earned this property an Ecotel certification.
Green USP: While most true green resorts think indigenous,
right from architecture to decor, how many extend the
concept when it comes to staffing and reaping profits?
That's where this resort, which is owned and operated by
the local villagers, stands out. Thinking local is the surest
way to ensure that a resort goes easy on the planet.
Green USP: All the high-flying rooms, about 80-90 ft
above the ground, have been built using biodegradable
material used by the native tribal population and
consist of one bedroom with attached bathroom. We
especially like the ingenious water counterweight cane
lift that is the only way to access one of the treehouses.
