Responsible stance

Contrary to what one can think the highlight of this lodge is the social aspect:

The local community participate fully in the development of the project. 80% of the team is Aboriginal and is trained in English. Young people will make pension studies to learn hospitality and others become professional guides.

An NGO "Borneo Ecotourism Solutions and Technologies" initiates projects to help the community for access to water, medical care and develop education and environmental protection projects. Part of the resources of the excursions and a part of the resources of the Lodge are donated to the NGO.

Eco-rating is not bad either: A gallery and books on flora and local fauna are made available to inform travellers. Local guides are available to share their knowledge on the Rainforest of Hornbill Boardwalk.

The Lodge is built with local wood including the Belian. It uses lamps has low voltage, and hot water is provided by solar energy. It is also self-sufficient in water through a filtration system of rain water, and convenient sorting and compost.

The lodge encourages its visitors to the economy of water and energy, particularly by not replacing the towels.

Everything is done to minimize noise so as not to disturb wildlife, so the boats are electric motors.

The lodge is adhering to the code of the World Travel and Tourism Council and the PATA's Green Leaf program.
It is part of the ecolodges selected in the world by the National Geographic Unique Lodges.
