A night at Concordia

Our next to last night on St John was spent at Concordia, Maho’s sister property on the east end of the island. The resort is made up of eco-tents,

connected by elevated boardwalks (made of recycled newspaper! how cool is that):

The tents are definitely a step up from Maho in luxury…

… but also in eco-practices, since they all have solar heated showers,

composting toilets (how about that for a toilet with a view!)

and no electricity! there is a propane stove, and all lights and fans work with a solar battery (so awesome!)..

This place demonstrates quite well how far you can go on almost exclusively natural resources – it was so inspiring!

Eco-practices aside, this place has another fascinating feature: from almost everywhere you get these gorgeous, sweeping views of the island’s most rugged dramatic side, over Salt Pond and Ram Head:

We hung out at the swimming pool,

cooked (and the smell of chris’ ragu attracted a furry visitor that just wouldn’t give up):

chilled out on the amazing deck,

and even found time to go on a full moon hike to Ram Head!

The moon was so bright that we didn’t even need a torch to find our way. Not looking forward to going back to the normal world.
