ARCHITECTURE – with a structure designed over 40 years ago, it is one of the oldest properties on Tulum beach. It was intentionally built to capitalize on natural Caribbean breezes keeping the villa and property cool and comfortable without the use of air conditioning.
ENERGY CONSUMPTION – the hotel is powered completely by a state-of-the-art solar panel system. They only use a generator on cloudy days (and there aren’t a lot of them) when they are unable to harness the incredible power of the sun.
ENVIRONMENTAL CONSCIOUSNESS – everything from the cleaning products to bathroom amenities are organic and biodegradable. All food provided is locally sourced from family farms and carefully handpicked to ensure the freshest and ripest ingredients are chosen for guests.
PLATINUM LEED REVIEWED – it is the only Platinum LEED reviewed property in Mexico. A LEED certification is recognized across the globe as the premier mark of achievement in green building and a Platinum Rating is the highest certification that can be attained.
WASTE MANAGEMENT – they strive to eliminate all types of waste by following the 3 R’s of sustainability: Reduce, Reuse & Recycle. The hotel utilizes a grey water filtration system for our vill and all of our kitchen & organic waste are composted on site and used to feed our natural vegetation.
WATER CONSUMPTION – the hotel was built to capture underground water sources while also having multiple rain collection systems. The water from the well is used for the villa’s showers and gravity fed from our roof. They use our rainwater to revitalize, maintain and reproduce indigenous plants vital to the surrounding ecosystem.
