Our Environmental Program
Aims to be at the fore-front of ecologically & environmentally responsible architecture and development.
Ecologically - responsible Architecture
The Racha has been designed to blend in with the existing terrain of the land and care has been taken to ensure the 85
luxurious single-storey villas and annex buildings do not stick out like sore thumbs ruining the natural profile of the land. No cutting
and filling of the land was allowed.
Save Our Trees
Each and every building has been carefully set up and located on site by the architect and owners. Many of our villas have
trees coming through the terraces and back yards.
We would rather cut the eaves of our roofs than to cut the trees. For every tree that is cut, 2 trees are planted to replace it.
Environmentally - friendly Design
All villas have double thick exterior walls – to reduce load on airconditioning. Use condensate water from the airconditioning
system to fill the foot bath outside each villa for washing of feet. There are no fabric curtains in the entire resort – to cut down on
laundry. Recover heat from Generators for laundry. Energy saving lighting design – use of rope lights & low power energy saving
lamps. Sewage treatment system. Use ozone instead of Chlorine in all pools.
Our Environmental Initiatives
• Daily beach cleaning by our staff.
• A comprehensive waste recycling program.
• Public toilets for day-trippers at Ao Batok.
• Environmentally-friendly pontoon jetty for all to use.
Our environment is everywhere around us and if we do not take care of it today, who will take care of it tomorrow for us?
It is our responsibility to safe-guard our environment for our future generations and this responsibility starts today.
