Nihi Sumba is a luxury resort on the beach on the island of Sumba Indonesia. Nihi Sumba has a long history of recognition and awards in sustainable tourism and take pride in continuing and improving on this and we are evaluating all the sustainability initiatives and future possibilities as well as assisting the staff in the implementation of the improvements. Water is a scarce and expensive commodity at Nihi Sumba and this was the first area we put under the microscope to find ways to reduce the freshwater demand. The other areas we are concentrating on are energy, waste and maintenance. Energy and waste minimization initiatives will be implemented and a waste upcycling laboratory is planned. We are collaborating with a permaculture designer for the implementation of a vegetable garden, food forest, nurseries, and an organic matter processing facility connected to the treated wastewater plant for the recycling of waste water to the gardens.
The Datai is a luxury resort hotel on the island of Langkawi in the natural forest of Datai Bay. The sustainability works started with an assessment at the end of 2017 when the hotel closed for extensive renovations.
Part of the rebranding of the hotel includes major sustainability initiatives and every aspect of the operation was put under the sustainability microscope so that the negative impact on the magnificent natural forest can be minimised.
The initiatives includes a drinking water bottling plant, permaculture designed garden by Mark Garrett and a PURE Center where all the hotel's waste will be sorted, processed and prevented from going to landfill by employing a circular economy model to the waste stream. (Zero Waste To Landfill) The newly built Nature Center concentrates on keeping the wildlife, forest and ocean pristine and showcasing it to the discerning guests of The Datai.
The Hotel has achieved EarthCheck ECO Certification in November 2019.
