According to an email we just received, eco-resorts have got to spiff up a bit if they want to attract “high spenders.” Of 283 travelers surveyed, more than 60 percent would pay a premium for an eco-resort. But among the delicious tidbits: “Air conditioning and Internet access were the two most missed items if not available.”

This comes courtesy of a company that’s building “chic eco-homes” at the tip of a biosphere reserve in the Philippines. Sigh.
