Use of energy efficient bulbs (including LED) in the hotel and plan to use as many as possible to meet yearly goals.

Measure and monitor energy usage (electric, fuel and gas), and aim to reduce energy consumption.

Encourage all staff to save electricity e.g. to shut off office lights and personal computers during meal break, when attending training and/or leaving office more than 30 minutes.

All electronic devices are low consumption to reduce energy consumption.

Electricity is switched off in the vacant rooms and villas to limit the energy consumption

No air-conditioner in all rooms. All rooms have semi outdoor bathrooms.

The property is carefully maintained to ensure it is kept as green and natural as possible. This helps reduce pollution and creates a healthy environment for the guests as well as for the staff.

The swimming pool uses ionisation for water purification and minimizes chemicals use. To decrease pollution and noise, cars and motorbikes are parked at our garage far from resort.

All the fresh fruits and vegetables available in the villa are supplied locally and as needed to reduce waste. We use the first in – first out (FIFO) system to ensure freshness and good stock management.

The kitchen uses organic vegetables and herbs from our gardens.

 

Building

The natural land structure and local waterways were not altered, but rather respected and worked with the natural elements while protecting and preserving the environment around the resort.

The rooms offer natural ventilation and light with the availability of large glass windows. Curtains and blinds are set in the rooms and villas to reduce sun heat. The fence of every room in the villa is not made of concrete fence, but from a living tree fence.
