Eco-Lodge: Sustainability & Responsibility
The philosophy instilled by the founders since 2007:
– Sustaining the development of the island and welfare of its inhabitants
– Encouraging the protection of the rich local culture and environment
The first step was to entrust local teams from the island and neighboring villages with the construction of the facilities.
Thanks to this project, the electricity was brought to the island.
In the same spirit, for its opening in 2007, the Lodge recruited and trained exclusively people from the island. They account for 98% of the team.
More ambitious projects, regarding essentially health and education, have also been undertaken by the Lodge, with the help of its guests and the villagers.
Lodge and guests bring the funding for materials and equipment, while the villagers bring the manpower, the whole project being followed through by the Lodge’s management.
Some past and current projects are presented here below. All our guests are always welcome to support the projects and visit them while cycling around Don Daeng.
