This five-star eco-resort project for Passport Resorts honors The Sea Ranch design and planning traditions while drawing on state-of-the-art sustainable design practices. Special features include vegetated roofs, thermal solar heating, recycled timber, open space preservation and a flora-filter water system. Major program elements include 60 lodge rooms situated in cottage clusters, restaurant, spa, meeting facilities and recreation. Cart paths will service the hotel units, and guest vehicles will be restricted to designated parking areas. The new main building will house the restaurant, bar, reception and health and wellness facilities. Meeting spaces will be located in a new adjoining building that will have a “fireside room” for social gatherings. The project is designed to achieve a minimum of LEED Platinum certification.
