Non-Profit Eco-Resort Planned

 
The world's first non-profit and luxury eco-resort community to commit 100 percent of operating profits to environmental protection and social improvements 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.

The Cacao Pearl will occupy an entire private island, with 124 acres of rainforest and coconut trees fringed with over a mile of pristine beaches, according to its operator, Cacao Resorts, Singapore. This new approach to resort communities is nestled within the eco-tourism destination of Palawan - Philippines, an eco preservation area within sailing distance of two UNESCO World Heritage sites and four marine reserves. The Cacao Pearl is an eco-chic, low-density boutique resort concept promising sustainable development and sustainable enjoyment - designer living units with zero carbon cost, 5-star service, an infinity pool, wreck and reef diving, a secluded destination spa, organic gardens and bar, a restaurant, and private media rooms.

"Forget old luxury, welcome green luxury," says Joel Cere, CEO at Cacao Resorts. "In a world of homogenous, over-developed, concrete destinations, disinterested developers, fake themes, over-priced mini-bars, token green gestures, and disenfranchised communities, Cacao Resorts provides an authentic experience for the grown-up backpacker, a guilt-free option for the traveler with conscience, a breath of fresh tropical air for sophisticated urban escapees."

Cacao Resorts operates a "greenprint" for operations and benefits from sustainable construction methods, ethical management practices, and ecologically responsible operations. That means 100-percent renewable energy, and, for the first time in the hospitality industry, 100 percent of the resort's net operating profits will be used to support local environmental and social programs.
