This fully operational hotel acts as a veritable showroom of green technology. If it’s green, it’s here. Every inch of green space has been turned into some sort of chemical-free garden, bustling with herbs, veggies, and flora; solar panels bedeck the many rooftops; and the gorgeous clear-blue pool is ionized to minimize the use of chlorine. The staff is committed to green practices, and the facilities are often host to a number of local natural-cooking classes and eco-aware seminars. The prices keep extended stays within reason.
