Rarely is jet-set glamour associated with social responsibility, but Hotel Sezz St. Tropez aims to change that. Sure, it has a Dom Pérignon bar and villa accommodations that would have made the Rat Pack proud, but it also focuses its attention on rainwater recycling and LED technology so that guests can indulge guilt-free. The hotel was designed to integrate into its natural surroundings, and to that end, its builders managed to preserve nearly every existing tree on the site. Carbon-absorbent eucalyptus trees surround the car park area, and extra thick walls and integrated window filters that absorb ultraviolet rays add to the property's energy-saving efforts. Guests can borrow bikes to pedal to the beach, and then return for dinner at Restaurant Colette, where produce is sourced from local suppliers.
