Whenever we could, we used local and discarded material to build our property. Many of our tables from old palettes and Kohomba (Margosa) tree, and chairs from leftover woods.
Our secluded cabanas are nestled among tall coconut trees that ensure shade and tropical landscape. The Palmyra leaves surround the cabanas for added privacy, and thatch coconut leaves cover the roofs.
Roof structure allows the cooling wind to enter and ventilate the rooms, reducing the need for ventilation or AC to the minimum.
As a trial period we are going to plant fresh veg in our resort.
We operate local first preference.
All most all of our staff come from local village, within one KM; we trained then to we trained and helped to become steward, supervisor, and pool manager.
All our food is sourced from the local fishermen, as well as local vegetables and fruits.
The local villagers lead the tours and activities we offer to our guests. We only outsource when competence or availability requires it.
Support local community handy craft, we have a gift shop that sells bracelets, chain ear studs made out of seashells.
It has been hard to combine our ethical believe and business, we are satisfied with the result and we currently recycle food waste to feed local animals,
practice trash can separation and bring plastic containers to the recycling.
Our new pool uses salt water chlorination system to reduce the use of chemicals.
Our water filtration system to allow our guests to refill the provided glass containers that will eliminate plastic bottles in our resort.
Laundry uses lot of water electricity, micro fibers are big issue in waster system; hence we change sheets every two days.
We band the use of strews, reduce the use of plastic.
we use energy efficient lighting and the lights are kept to minimum after every one go to bed.
We use ground water and filter for general use.
Our hand picked garden plants dont need to be watered often in dry seasons.
Currently, our resort is fully powered from the city grid.
To change this into a more sustainable source, This will allow us to be off the grid during the day, powering lights and other small appliances, internet, kitchen, cabanas, and to some extend hot water in most showers, and more. Basically everything except for AC.
