According to a survey of high value travelers, eco-resorts need to improve quality and variety of food, facilities on offer, and provide more design and stylish accommodations to attract visitors.
Eco-resorts scored well on cultural awareness, activities for travelers and opportunity to meet local communities. Air conditioning and Internet access were the two most missed items if not available.
The survey, conducted online among 283 travelers on behalf of Cacao Resorts, a luxury eco-resort developer, was conducted prior to the development and investments of the Cacao Pearl, the World’s first non-profit luxury eco-resort community.
The Cacao Pearl, Palawan: the world’s first non-profit and luxury eco-resort community will be built on a 124 acre private island in the Calamianes archipelago, at the northernmost tip of the Palawan Biosphere Reserve in the Philippines.
