leoatthebeach.jpgAfter picking up a 104 acre island called Blackadore Cay off the coast of Belize a few years ago, Leonardo DiCaprio is finally ready to start doing something with it. While hopes were thin the guy would simply leave the location in a natural state, if anything was going to happen with it we’re happy the actor/environmentalist will be the guy running the show.

Apparently, DiCaprio has agreed to partner with with the owners of the Four Seasons Resorts chain to create a ‘green hotel’. Beyond an expected start date of 2008, very little additional details have been leaked. We can only assume that these hotels will have a neutral impact on the planet — sourcing energy either from the surrounding ocean, sun, wind, or other methods. We would also love to see the resort incorporate as much of its natural surroundings as possible; rather than tower above the sand and surf. No doubt, he’ll be sitting down with Francis Ford Coppola and tearing some pages out of his own successful eco-resort empire.

All we can predict is, if you’re interested in staying the night at Leo’s, start saving.
