Hotel of the week: Star Island, Bahamas

David Sklar has turned Star Island into a carbon-neutral resort. Power is generated from photovoltaic roofs and wind turbines.

Opening this year, Star Island aims to be a guilt-free paradise, said Barbara Ireland in The New York Times. David Sklar, a Georgia developer, has turned a 35-acre Bahamian cay into the “world’s first truly carbon-neutral resort island.” This private island, once “home to nothing but sand, coral rock, and trees,” now features bungalows, hotel villas, and an “uncompromisingly luxurious” clubhouse—none of which rely on burning fossil fuels for energy. Photovoltaic roofs and wind turbines, found on every building, generate power for the resort.Contact: Starislandbahamas.com
