Tourism cannot ever be completely green or fully socially responsible, since each of us would negatively affect the environment in some way or the other. This is one reason why sustainable and responsible start-ups are necessary more than ever before. We wish to keep our natural, cultural and social environment in balance. And below we have highlight our mission in a nut-shell.

We are a team of locals focused on the development and inclusion of the Local Economy. We not only employ locals as team members, we also involve over 99% of local stakeholders in each business area. We emphasise in providing all year around income to our team members, which is a substantial part of our strategy. We take services-selection criteria very seriously, we thrive to offer only those services that we can sustain with our local team members. We avoid preparing food items which are not regional/local-produce (km0). We have removed meat/beef completely from our menu and replaced it with soya products. The only meat product we offer is chicken and we would love to remove this also from our menu in the future. With these measures we contribute heavily to the local economy and at the same time encourage a partnership based tourism model through a sustainable outlook.

We have objected to getting GRID electricity, since concrete electrical posts along the water would destroy the natural look of our lagoon front. We have Solar run lights which reduces the use of our diesel Generator.
