wherever possible we have used locally sustainable traditional materials: rammed earth, cow dung, stone, bamboo and coconut
 
   

  goa lies 15.5 degrees north of the equator and boasts an abundance of this little used natural resource
each tent is lit by ten low voltage 5w halogen lights powered by a 90 amp/hour tubular storage battery
the sun recharges the battery each day via a solar panel in the toilet area at the rear
the roof of the tower restaurant houses three sq.m solar collectors which heat 650 litres of well water each day directly by thermo siphoning
the insulated stainless steel cylinders above the collectors store this hot water for evening and morning use in the kitchen and showers



  our composting eco toilets have been ingeniously designed and built by paul calvert and his team from ecosolutions in kerala
the most important factor in their efficient and odourless function is maintaining total separation between solids and liquids
solid human waste and paper fall into a mixture of mango and jackfruit woodchips and earth
urine and water from a clay jug leave by a pipe and directly fertilise banana trees to the rear of each tent
the whole toilet is sprayed afterwards with em



  all our organic waste is taken off site to compost and is treated with em
em is a remarkable liquid containing a consortium of beneficial microbes which ferment
it contains over 80 strains of microbes: lacto bacillus, photosynthetic bacteria, yeast, filamentous fungi, ray fungi, candida sp and many others 'aerobic' as well as anaerobic co-exist in an environment of <3.5ph
the compost produced is used as plant fertiliser
