To celebrate Earth Day on April 22, here's our pick of the most glamorous, green and groovy hotels on the planet. Run by the lively ex-mayor of Quito, Roque Sevilla, Mashpi Lodge is a labour of love hidden high in the Ecuadorian cloud forest. The 3,200-acre reserve is part of the Chocó biodiversity hotspot, so it’s a big one for nature nuts and twitchers. And for those who get off on hanging out with scientists, there is an on-site laboratory and a big naturalist team who will take you romping about the jungle looking for capuchin monkeys and leaping into waterfalls. Those employed by the lodge include ex-loggers, and profits are poured back into local conservation and community engagement.
