Matava is a genuine eco-hideaway designed to cause minimal impact on the environment and to promote conservation awareness with our local community and visitors. Ecologically conscious yet adventure driven Matava heralds a new breed in holiday experience.
It is the resort's policy to minimise our impact on the environment and to promote and support ecologically sound conservation measures in our community.
Solar Power: All lighting in the Oceanview accommodation and the main bure is solar powered. The resort office also derives all its power from solar energy. The resort does not operate any main generators.
Organic Farm: We minimise the need to import vegetables with associated transportation carbon emissions by maintaining a large organic garden in the resort grounds. In addition, we supply local village farmers with seeds and then purchase the fruit and vegetables from them. Many fruit trees such as banana and papaya are scattered throught the grounds.
Matava's Responsible Tourism Code of Conduct: Matava's dedication to Responsible Tourism is the driving force behind our Environmental Policy. Far from being an abstract ideal for us, Responsible Tourism shapes all our major decisions. See our website f
