Abstract: Eco resort has been broadly categorized as sustainable built environment. But, what is sustainable built environment, actually? This research sets out to investigate eco resort from the perspective of sustainable technology and its relevance with vernacular architecture. Sustainable technology in this research is differentiated into high and low technology, while vernacular architecture, which categorized as low technology, will be analyzed through its contributing qualities towards sustainable building in its relevance as a climate responsive architecture. The research investigated three established eco resorts in different regions in Indonesia as they represented different socio-cultural and environmental background, which affect how they applied various technologies and eventually define the character of the sustainable built environment. The case studies has reaffirmed that there are many factors that contributed to the making of sustainable built environment like eco resort. It can be concluded that eco resort is a multi-characteristics entity and identifying it through sustainable technology is only one way to define it. The case studies have shown that vernacular architecture is very relevant to low sustainable technology as it promotes climate responsive architecture through passive design strategy. In the context of eco resort, adapting vernacular architecture is the most appropriate form of the local socio-cultural values representation that will enhance tourists’ experience.
