What’s a Cool Retreat?
Sustainability & Eco Awareness
All Cool Retreats properties are renovations of existing period properties; we have used as much of the original buildings as possible. Solar power has been chosen for hot-water systems in Samudrawasa, and in properties where heating is required, sustainable hardwood stoves have been chosen.
Local craftsmen and labourers were used in all renovations, with existing materials being reused or re-purposed wherever possible. Materials were sourced as close to the projects as possible, and eco-friendly paints and finishes were used.
Lighting throughout all our Cool Retreats locations use long-life low-wattage LED bulbs.
Water is a precious commodity and is treated with care. Grey water is re-used where possible, and natural aquifers are managed responsibly.
All bathroom products are made by Siam Botanicals and are 100% natural and free from synthetic chemicals.
Our laundry and swimming pools are managed with the minimal usage of chemicals.
Local teams are employed to manage and maintain all properties.
