Pamper Yourself.

When was the last time you said the words, "I need a break."? More importantly, when was the last time you actually acted on that and booked a holiday away from all the stresses of work and the city life? Today, let us take you on a trip down the green lane - where pampering yourself comes hand in hand with pampering the earth!

Here are some beautiful destinations that offer eco-friendly spa services:

Washington, D.C. : Nusta Spa

Nusta Spa stays on the green path by using sustainable, local and chemical free recycled materials throughout its interior as well as their products!

                                                                                       Peru: Inkaterra Machu Picchu

Located in an Andean village near the ancient city of Machu Picchu, the Inkaterra Hotel and its Uno Spa transcend the old and modern worlds. One of the greenest hotel resorts in the world, it is carbon neutral, and long recognized for its extensive sustainability commitment. This includes the use of green technology as well as supporting major ecology research and conservation programs of its rainforest surroundings.

Australia: Daintree Eco Lodge and Spa

Nestled in one of the most precious, respected rainforests, Daintree Eco Lodge and Spa peacefully resides in the heart of this incredible fusion of humanity and nature, and does its part each day to respect and nurture the Aboriginal tribe that so carefully crafts its life here.

A three-day Aboriginal Expedition allows you to walk the pathways, breathe the air, and live the life of a human being that is truly at one with nature. The green doesn’t stop there. Once inside, the spa menus are just as kind to the earth, so while you’re getting a facial, or immersing yourself in a massage, you can smile knowing that not only are you treating yourself, but you’re also helping the astonishing outdoor setting around you. The green spa’s partnership with the Australian Greenhouse Office ensures its daily reduction of greenhouse emissions, energy management, intellectual property rights, cultural heritage preservation, and the underlying movement of working at one with nature.

Ireland: Monart Destination Spa

Being Ireland's first destination eco-spa, Monart Spa is widely recognized as Ireland's top spa by travel authorities like Forbes magazine. Located on 100 acres of the Irish countryside, the spa was built to ethical standards, including every tree cut down used later in its construction, operating hydrocarbon-free, and according to stringent energy efficiency standards.

North Africa: Kasbah Du Toubkal

Not for the faint of heart, this beautiful one of a kind gem perched 1800 feet above sea level on North Africa's highest peak has been recognized by the King of Morocco for setting the responsible travel standard. The Kasbah uses mule transportation, minimizes electricity and partners with the local Berber community, funding local projects such as a school, waste disposal system and the area's first ambulance.

Costa Rica: Tabacon Grand Spa

 Amidst the pristine rain forest of Costa Rica and an active volcano is the Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort, rooted in its surroundings. Treatments are conducted outdoors to the sounds of waterfalls and the rain forest, and specialize in local ingredients, especially those using volcanic mud from the active Arenal Volcano, prized for its curative properties. Long a recipient of international awards and certification, Tabacon is considered one of the finest spa resorts in Central America.

These are only a few of the most sought after getaways around the world. What are you waiting for? Pamper yourself while staying on the bright green road.
