Travel Haiku - Maho Bay (St John, The Caribbean)
we learn how to holiday
beauty just a brain
away from ugliness
we learn the fine art of turning
rubbish into treasure
First opened in 1976, Maho Bay has reaped accolades as an eco-sensitive resort with 114 tent-cottages woven into the tapestry of the gorgeous St. John landscape. Its sustainable agenda includes the 'Trash to Treasures' program, where the resort's trash is recycled into crafts and fine art. The dwellings are also constructed almost entirely of recycled materials and are powered by sun and wind. For a bit more money, opt for the upscale Estate Concordia Studios, which feature spacious bedrooms and decks overlooking Salt Pond Bay. Rates dropped to $80 a night starting in May.
