Eco practices

Perched on a forested hill slope, the resort is unique by always giving the natural environment priority even when it was being built. Buildings were built around existing forest trees, nesting sites left unmolested (even if it meant resiting a building) and the slopes were only minimally disturbed.
We serve drinks with steel straws and say no to plastic ones.
