Isla Palenque Resort

Offer Image
Located just off Panama’s Pacific Coast, adjacent to the protected Gulf of Chiriquí National Marine Park, Isla Palenque is a private island sanctuary to experience ‘nature in the raw’. The island’s nearly 400 acres of jungle are framed by seven pristine beaches and house a number of wilderness trails and hidden archaeological sites. 

The total developed footprint is approximately 5% of the island, with over half kept as a nature reserve. Much of the wooden furniture is made on-site from trees which have fallen naturally on the island, and beachfront casita structures are made from local sustainable teak. Many of the ingredients used are grown on the island, and the resort is a proud partner of the community-supported Dock to Dish sustainable fishing programme. The island’s reforestation programme invites guests to plant a primary rainforest seedling of their choice during their stay.

Grootbos Private Nature Reserve

Offer Image

Grootbos Private Nature Reserve, situated two hours from Cape Town, is a pristine marine and botanical wilderness. Grootbos’s location is a showcase for the most biodiverse of the world’s plant kingdoms, the Cape Floral Kingdom. Beyond luxury and inspiring experiences, Grootbos is an award-winning pioneer in sustainable tourism.

Through the Future Trees reforestation programme, guests can plant their very own indigenous tree and decrease their carbon footprint. The on-site organic farm, 'Growing the Future', produces fresh produce, honey and free-range eggs for the lodges. The supply loop is completed as the organic food waste from the lodge kitchens is in turn fed to the pigs. Grootbos has introduced solar energy and greywater systems, and has committed to being completely single-use plastic-free by 2020. The reserve is a member of National Geographic Unique Lodges (alongside Red Carnation’s Ashford Castle and Bushmans Kloof).
