Other Things to Note
For us it is very important to have a positive impact on the environment. Our greatest asset is nature and without it, this project would be meaningless.
Since our inception we have taken into account very basic concepts such as materials reuse, recycling and responsible use of available resources.
Examples of this behavior is the manufacture of all our furniture with recycled wood. We reuse Pine pallets entering the country with the import of machinery. The nails were removed, the holes filled, sanded wood, and reused to create unique quality furniture without cutting trees.
The decoration of the hotel was designed through family and friends building ideas. We have also received the support of several local craftsmen using traditional techniques such as the Tigua.
Good nutrition is a keystone of our philosophy by which we have developed an organic garden which provides us much of our ingredients for the kitchen. The rest comes from organic markets which support local farmers who have decided to say NO to chemicals.
By visiting our hotel you will have the option to calculate your carbon dioxide emissions and plant trees to offset.
