New eco-lodges and eco-friendly hotels on the ecobookers site

It's been a long time since the last post as we have been working hard on a re-design of the site. It's not quite ready yet but we're sure you'll love it when it is!

In the mean time, there are a few new properties on the ecobookers site, which are well worth taking a look at.

The first is Motswari Lodge in South Africa. As part of the Greater Kruger National Park Conservancy and traversing close to 150 square kilometres of pristine habitat, Motswari offers visitors the best of Africa; wide horizons, untamed wilderness and plentiful game in its natural habitat.
While every comfort is catered for with the finest wines, superb cuisine and understated but luxuriously appointed rooms with lovely river or savannah views, the emphasis is still on the bountiful wildlife and true wilderness experience. With almost nine hours of optional game drives, walks and informal talks every day visitors leave well informed, refreshed and inspired.

Next up is Chez Sven Bed & Breakfast in Wellfleet, Massachussets, USA. This eco-friendly B&B is centrally located on Old King’s Highway, a “scenic road,” unpaved as in colonial times. It is a quick walk to Long and Dyer Ponds or into the village (1/2 mile to Long Pond; 0.8 miles to Wellfleet center) and only 2 miles to spectacular Cahoon Hollow Beach.
Here you can discover Wellfleet at its best: traditional Cape Cod setting, newly renovated rooms, ideal location, close to ponds, ocean and town.
Chez Sven offers organic cotton sheets, 100% natural amenities, wholesome breakfast and kid-glove care.

Next, we move over to Gecko Villa in Thailand. This eco-friendly Villa is set in over 60,000sqm of private grounds, with a walled garden, fish ponds and orchards and nestles amongst the paddy fields, between three small, rural villages, in Thailand’s Isaan plateau. With its private swimming pool this stand-alone, 3 bedroom getaway is exclusively yours during your stay and is fully catered and serviced.

Finally, we have Spier Hotel in South Africa. This 155-bedroom eco-friendly hotel is built on the banks of the Eerste River and has panoramic views of the Helderberg mountains and vineyards.
The Spier Hotel provides four star comforts in a charming village-style setting with comfortable, spacious bedrooms grouped around six private courtyards and individual pools. Spier puts its focus on sustainability and, wherever possible, locally made and environmentally friendly products are used.
Spier also offers stimulating experiences, from exploring the collection of contemporary South African and African art to discovering the art in Spier’s wines. Guests can wander around the extensive grounds, landscaped with indigenous plants, or ramble along the riverbanks, watching the bird life or simply enjoy the peace.

More news of the re-design to come soon...!
