Hoteliers are now consciously going green by adapting the sustainability life and mindset into their business. In addition, tourism and hospitality business owners have explored renewable energy sources beyond recycling, reusing and utility cost-cutting methods. They have now ventured into this grander scale effort, a Solar energy source.
Here are some hotels and accommodations that are worth our vacation days.
