Sustainable Travel

Eco Hotels & Resorts Anniversary!

Celebrate with us our 3rd anniversary! We're so grateful for all our fellow eco-travelers and member hotels. Let's keep making sustainable travel the only kind of travel!

On November 6th, 2019 Eco Hotels & Resorts (EHR) went live! So today we celebrate our trajectory and achievements! It’s been three years since the company was founded, and every single day EHR’s team has done an amazing effort to promote sustainable travel, teach travelers worldwide to make better decisions, push hotels to work harder to do things differently/ Dare to go against what we are all used to and choose a way of living and traveling that positively impacts the world.

A Mexican start-up founded by Maria Olazabal, driven by the lack of sustainable options in the hotel industry, Maria seeks to make sustainable travel as accessible and real as possible, where travelers can find more than 35 eco-luxury hotels in 19 different countries. 

Hotels are evaluated against 12 standards set by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC),  ranging from sustainable management to the socioeconomic, cultural, and environmental impacts of the projects.

The platform allows travelers to book luxury sustainable hotels, with the guarantee that the complexes comply with certain standards and do not fall into practices of greenwashing.

EHR’s philosophy is that together, we’re stronger!  Travelers worldwide have the power to change the industry, push the hotels, and demand change. And Eco Hotels & Resorts is the platform that boosts and connects the hotels that have already listened with eco-travelers worldwide. In addition, Eco Hotels & Resorts builds awareness around sustainable travel, red flags travelers should look out for. Building a stronger, healthier community to have a healthy planet. 

Our main goal is to make sustainable travel, the only kind of travel. Where every hotel in the world would meet EHR’s standards, from boutique hotels to all-inclusive huge resorts. Educating people and making every traveler become an eco-traveler, being more conscious. And last but not least, to eliminate the idea of having to sacrifice luxury when traveling sustainably. 


EHR’s Trajectory 

Eco Hotels & Resorts started from scratch. Giving the team a chance to build a curated collection of the best hotels and resorts that truly are luxurious and sustainable. With just a few hotels from a couple of countries, today, EHR has a collection of 40 hotels in 19 different countries! 

At Eco Hotels & Resorts sustainability is based on 12 different pillars. Every hotel or resort in the collection is committed to each of these pillars focusing not only on not damaging the environment but on regenerating it.
