Eco-Bungalows

You will be accommodated in one of our 7 stunning eco-bungalows, perfectly blended with the surrounding nature and situated between the beach and the forest.

Each bungalow is equipped with double or twin beds in the sleeping area under the palm thatched roof, a self-contained bathroom with hot & cold shower, a large living room, equipped with handmade furniture and decorated with African art, colorful fabrics, and a very comfortable hammock. Take your time to explore our eco bungalows and see for yourself what’s so special about them:

Rainwater harvesting

As there is no ground water source in the rocky substrate of the island, each bungalow collects its own freshwater supply from rainwater during the rainy season. This rainwater passes through a complex filtration system and is stored in spacious underground cisterns. The water is then hand-pumped through a solar-powered heating system into hot & cold-water containers for the shower and hand basin in the bathroom.

Composting toilets

Our compost toilets decompose human waste quickly and reduce it to a nutrient rich dry matter that is re-used in toilets and plant beds. The aerobic composting process is powered by a ventilation system of small wind-wheels fitted on top of long ventilation pipes and ensures our guests that it feels not different to using a regular toilet; except that composting toilets need no flush water at all, thus they effectively economize on water and prevent sewage from entering the reef where it would negatively affect the highly sensitive coral community.

Solar Power

Lights are powered by photovoltaic panels on the roof that provide ample environmentally friendly 12V energy for normal usage. The open design of the bungalows, with minimal barriers to the open air, allows for maximum through-draft for cooling of the bungalows; a form of natural air-conditioning. To enhance this louvers are in place that can be lowered or closed depending on the desired temperature.
