Why 2018 Is the Year of Sustainable Luxury Travel


You want to unwind, recharge, and get that sun-kissed glow that only a luxury vacation can provide. And as 2018 is the year of sustainable, eco-friendly luxury travel, you want to go green on your holiday.

Not only did the United Nations deem sustainability a best practice of luxury hotels and resorts, celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Jessica Alba, and Adrian Grenier are investing in sustainable luxury resorts.

According to a 2017 Pew research poll, over 50 percent of millennials are concerned about our carbon footprint, yet still want a luxe travel experience. We know it’s on-trend and popular with the celebs, but what exactly is sustainable luxury in the travel space, you might wonder. From farm-to-table gourmet cuisine, indulgent holistic spa treatments, and hoteliers committed to energy efficient practices, sustainable luxury travel resorts offer opulent experiences while saving the planet.

El Dorado Spa Resorts by Karisma, leaders in the sustainable luxury resort experience, have been committed to eco-friendly holidays since 2009. With properties on the Riviera Maya, Mexico, you’ll find pristine white sand beaches, underwater caves, and scrumptious coral reefs that offer some of the most lush, natural resources for you to play, unwind, and revive.

Indeed El Dorado Spa Resorts by Karisma have set the bar for the luxury resort experience, pioneering the way travelers experience resort vacations. In particular, we love the El Dorado Royale by Karisma, a resort set on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula in the Riviera Maya. Here’s why.

From authentic Mexican hardwood craftsmanship to sleek interior design, the property is situated on 450 acres of tropical jungle. The resort is nestled among hundreds of palm trees on one mile of unspoiled Punta Brava Beach. Throughout accommodations, energy efficient air conditioning keeps you cool, and detergent-free laundry eliminates waste to the native environment. Indulge in your vacation without the guilt of causing harm to the planet’s resources.

Holistic Indulgent Spa Treatments

The internationally renowned Náay Spa, available to all El Dorado Royale by Karisma guests offers leading holistic and environmentally friendly beauty, wellness, and extravagant natural spa remedies. Spa treatments are based in the Mayan beauty practice to bring about body-mind balance that is centuries old, and native to the land El Dorado Royale by Karisma stands upon. Taking advantage natural resources native to the Mayan Riviera, Náay Spa offers a bespoke spa experience with sweet escapes to nurture you from the inside out. Spa treatments include hydrotherapy, which uses the healing properties of water for rejuvenation, as well as thermal herbal body wraps to detoxify naturally. Oceanfront massages and body treatments at the Náay Spa will bring you to the world beyond your everyday life.

Farm-to-Table Gourmet Cuisine

Indeed, sustainability is not a trend for luxe hoteliers like El Dorado Spa Resorts; it’s a part of daily life, creating synergy between natives and resort guests. El Dorado Royale by Karisma is home of the 75,886 square feet, state-of-the-art hydroponic greenhouse yielding about 12 tons of vegetables and herbs every month, including three varieties of tomatoes, cucumbers and chiles – all organic, pesticide-free, farm-to-table produce for hotel guests. And, because it is located on-site, the Greenhouse cuts down on island pollution. Everything that goes into your body at your stay here is of the highest caliber ingredients.

Amenities at the El Dorado Royale by Karisma not only offer a slice of paradise, but raise awareness of environmentally responsible hotelier and resort practices.
