ECO COTTAGES & FACILITIES
All eco-cottages have been traditionally handcrafted using natural materials with minimal impact on the surrounding environment. Purposefully designed as a practical and sustainable way to live as close to the earth as possible, you will experience living wide open to the jungle and the symphony of its inhabitants in a simple, comfortable and refreshing manner. From frogs in the toilet to trees in the bedroom, we are not sanitized from the jungle, rather we are part of it.
Every cottage has its own individual garden terrace surrounded by the serenity of nature and includes an en suite private washroom with an open air shower for bathing under the trees.
