However, the current trend of eco accommodation providers seems oriented to be larger, more international hotel type luxury accommodation, operated by major chains, or to resorts in the wilderness. Paradoxically, in some areas, there may be resistance to allowing any form of fixed roof accommodation in more natural areas. In particularly, accommodation and hospitality services including hotel, resort and compounds continue to be the most criticized tourism component because of their potential negative impacts in the natural and cultural environment.
