Traveling environmentally friendly no longer means camping in a forest with a compostable toilet, not that there is anything wrong with that. These days there are literally limitless opportunities for the island adventurer looking for luxury without negatively impacting the environment.
Fiji is the latest local to hop of the environmentally friendly resort bandwagon.
New for 2010 is Laucala an ultra-exclusive, luxurious private island resort in the waters of Vanua Levu in the North East of Fiji. Owned by Dietrick Mateschitz, the swiss owner of Red Bull, Laucala is the perfect island escape for those who are seeking total privacy. Dietrick bought the island in 2003 and has since restored and renovated it using eco-friendly architecture based on traditional Fijian building techniques and local materials. Laucala runs on an almost self-sufficient basis. The resort breeds its own livestock and poultry, grows its own fruit vegetables, makes its own honey, bottles pure volcanic mineral water and even hand makes all its own guest and spa products, using the natural resources from the island. The goal is for the resort to be 85% self-sustainable within two years.
