Eco Chalet

Our brand new super luxury 96m² eco-chalet is our premium offering. Just recently completed, it is fully (100%) solar powered, build to a high standard with eco-friendly materials and methods.

At this point we have only one such chalet and it can only accommodate two persons - first come, first serve! This is perfect for a honeymoon.

Exterior of the Eco-Chalet - stonework from local river stones.

The echo-chalet is 96m² and separate from our other units. If you want a very private, luxurious space, this is it. Located on a dry (perennial) river bed, it has a lounge, kitchenette, en-suite bathroom with shower and an outside terrace area with BBQ. The spacious bedroom has a large high window to watch the monkeys in the trees from the kingsize bed, on the snakeproof base. You have a full HD flat-screen TV with a HD satellite decoder that carries several channels. You have sizzling hot solar water and the electricity comes from the sun as well. The inverter supplies power to the fridge/chiller/freezer during the day. At night the lights, the TV and the cooling fan run off the solar's batteries. It is possible to plug a low wattage appliance in for a short time. There are 2 USB ports for charging phones, tablets, cameras etc. The bedroom has an eco-friendly air-cooler blowing onto the bed. You have to balance the available solar power between the air-cooler, fan, tv, laptop, etc. The kitchenette has a gas stove, a wash-up basin, and some basic utensils. The unit has it’s own water tank independent from the camp. And because it is remote and away from the rest of the camp, there is an alarm system as well.

In recent weeks a leopard mum with baby has been seen a few times passing along the riverbed in front of the chalet on the way to the river. Dad leopard has been seen too. So keep a keen eye out for our special wildlife, and remember to treat them with caution and respect.
