Sustainable Accommodation in Reunion
Reunion is a small island but offers a diverse range of accommodation, from luxury beachside hotels and rural gîtes, to furnished apartments and youth hostels. The eco-conscious traveller will not be disappointed as most of these options will allow you to truly immerse yourself in the traditional island lifestyle.
For a luxurious vacation Reunion offers green hotels that engage in sustainable practices set in lush gardens by the sea. Alternatively, you can choose a rural gîte offering accessibility to hiking trails that provides modern comforts and a tranquil ambience to relax in after hours of rambling in the mountains. Some gîtes are situated strategically for those trekking the islands highest point, Piton des Neiges, or heading to the viewpoint overlooking the active volcano, Piton de la Fournaise, so hikers can take a rest or stay overnight and take in the sunrise.
You could also select a bed and breakfast or rent accommodation where you are living among the islanders and can engage with the authentic island lifestyle. Rental properties are designed to be cosy and exist in harmony with the environment. For those wishing to truly commune with nature and prefer outdoor living, camping in an idyllic location can make your holiday memorable. You can opt to either pitch a tent at a campsite or book a pre-installed safari tent that is equipped to ensure your stay is comfortable and relaxed.
