Leonardo DiCaprio’s 104 acres private island resort to be eco-friendly


Leo DiCaprio’s anticipated 104 acres private resort island, Blackadore Caye Resort, will be eco-friendly. The eco-resort in Belize is expected to open in late 2018. He bought the 104-acre Blackadore Caye almost a decade ago with a partner for $1.75 million (£1.17 million) after falling in love with the country.

The hotel will feature 36 resort bungalows and 36 estate homes for rent on the island, with half of the island will be a protected wildlife preserve.

To design the accommodations, the project’s lead design architect Jean-Michel Gathy took inspiration from Mayan architecture, using thatched roofs and wooden features and adding a modern twist with elements like marble.

Inside, guests will find features like circadian lighting, and solar panels will be installed outside to provide power and water will be collected from rainwater.

Blackadore Caye Development Group, which is leading the development of the project, plans to improve environmental conditions by replanting mangroves, bring in native species to replace invasive ones, and work to improve reef and fish breeding conditions.

The project is one of DiCaprio’s efforts towards making protective environmental changes, which also includes the recent release of his new documentary, “Before the Flood.”
