ABOUT BAMBOO ECO RESORT & SPA
The vision for Bamboo Eco Resort & Spa is to enhance the quality and diversity of Jamaican Tourism by creating an environmentally sustainable luxury resort, while also providing a positive socio-economic benefit in the local community.
Bamboo Eco Resort & Spa, Inc. (Bamboo) was formed to respond to the growing global market demand for luxury eco resorts and wellness spa destinations. Recognizing Jamaica as an established tourist destination, well suited for eco-tourism, Bamboo has created a pioneering plan to build the island’s premier eco resort and spa. With extensive planning, development, and research, Bamboo has the ability to develop a resort unparalleled in the hospitality industry.
In 1994 Bamboo Eco Resort’s Founders, James Burr and Jill McKenzie Burr, moved to Jamaica to explore sustainable living and island culture. Together they traveled island wide, gaining a passion for Jamaica’s warm friendly people and lush tropical beauty. They discovered the island to be rich in natural abundance, yet many rural villages were vitally in need of sustainable environmental and economic development. James and Jill quickly realized that Jamaica offered an excellent opportunity for ecological resort development, renewable energy production, natural products development, and Certified Organic farming.
