Eco Efforts

Protecting Our Environment

Ocean reef.

Mote Marine Partnership

Our partnership with Mote Marine will flourish in late 2020 and will involve many efforts in restoring our reef. Major focus will be on installing a site directly off our Great House in Newfound Harbor. A tract of coral will be cultivated for growth and continually be transplanted to help area reefs. www.mote.org

Restoration of Sea Grasses

Following the devastation of Hurricane Irma, our goal was to restore the natural coastline of the island. Appropriate sea grasses were planted on our beach as a result, and underwater buoys were installed to protect the seagrass in the surrounding waters.

Bath Amenities

We no longer utilize tiny bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Our suites are appointed with our signature Coco Mango bath & body essentials in large multi-use pump bottles.

A Strawless Escape

Plastic straws are not used on our island. Paper straws are available on request and metal straws with the resort logo are available for sale in the island boutique.

The mangroves.

Conch Republic Marine Army

We donate to the Conch Republic Marine Army, to help in their efforts to clean and restore the marine habitats of the Florida Keys.  The mangrove forests that protect our reefs still have many items that need to be retrieved.  This noble group of local volunteers use their time to do just that. www.conchrepublicmarinearmy.org

Lighting and HVAC

While rebuilding the property following hurricane Irma, high efficiency HVAC systems were installed in all our island structures. Our gorgeous landscape lighting as well as interior lights were also upgraded at LED products.
