The five-suite Inn at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, Calif., is the first hotel to be awarded the platinum Well Certification from the International Well Building Institute's collaboration with Green Business Certification. Going a step further than LEED certification, the designation awards buildings that enhance people's health and wellness. Among the structure's wellness amenities are high-quality air filters in the suites and the shared guest lounge; purified water from every tap using the inn's whole-house water filtration system; food signage that encourages guests to select from the fresh, healthy, organic menu options in the Breakfast Basket and the snacks in the Guest Lounge; more than 75 percent of all regularly occupied spaces situated within 25 feet of windows; and cardiorespiratory and muscle-strengthening equipment for guests and employees to use. For a buyout, the inn can hold 10 to 25 people.
