Tobago Welcomes News of New Eco Resort
The Immortelle Nature Resort will soon become one of the latest additions to Tobago’s collection of hotels.ÊDr. Kenny Watson, owner of the resort, introduced his project to delegates attending STC-7 during the round table on marketing and communications.
ÊUnlike traditional holiday accommodation options on the island, this 50-room resort is located approximately 700 feet above sea level and occupies 100 acres of a 500 acre estate, replacing what was once a cocoa plantation, Dr. Watson said.
“For every tree cut to build the resort, two were planted in its place,” said Dr. Watson, who stressed that the facility was developed with an acute environmental awareness.
He added that the lumber used for construction was sourced from sustainable plantations around the world.
The soft-adventure and nature enthusiasts such as mountain bikers, hikers and bird watchers, particularly from North America, are his primary target markets.
