Spice Island Beach Resort
With its whitewashed walls and modern graphic-print fabrics, this 64-room beachfront resort isn't your typical Caribbean all-inclusive, though you'll still be able to order a rum punch without hauling out your wallet. You'll sip your cocktail with a clear conscience, knowing that the property's water is solar-heated, the bulbs are energy-saving compact fluorescents, and the pool is treated with salt instead of chlorine. Another point in the eco column: recycling is de rigueur, with food scraps composted and guest soaps ground for use as laundry detergent for hotel uniforms.
Grand Anse Beach, St. George's; 473/444-4258; spicebeachresort.com; doubles from $805, including meals.
