The eco-accommodation sector’s history is formally traced back to 1994 when the term ‘ecolodge’ effectively received formal tourism-industry endorsement at the First International Ecolodge Forum held at Maho Bay Camps in the US Virgin Islands. The sector’s longevity, however, goes beyond that, as the term ‘ecotourism’, from whence the term ‘eco-accommodation’ is derived, was being used first by development and conservation professionals, and then in tourism, from the early 1980s. Ecotourism and eco-accommodation were originally developed as a means of bringing sustainable development to protected areas rich in fauna and flora resources such as national parks, game reserves and conservation areas. While ecotourism and eco-accommodation has largely moved out from the sphere of a conservation development operation into that of tourism, the ethos still remains the same. That is, the ecotourism or eco-accommodation outlet exists to bring sustainable development to the area of operation of that outlet.
Covered in this Report
Although terms such as ecotourism and eco-accommodation are by now relatively well understood, they are quite fluid in nature and it is therefore worth revisiting the definitions and descriptions. For example, in general usage and understanding the term ecotourism has morphed from an alternative expression for sustainable tourism, through to a catch-all phrase for any kind of tourism involving the natural world, to now a more technical appreciation of what the sector stands for and offers to tourists.
