ECO RESORT

Situated on the beach at the edge of a nature reserve of primary forest filled with birds, Weda Resort is dedicated to maintain the fragile ecology of our neighbourhood in Halmahera.

Our environmentally friendly technologies include:

  • Solar water heaters, providing hot showers in the resort
  • Ultra low emission outboard engines for the dive boat
  • Solar power and batteries, which provide much of our 24-hour electricity
  • Wind turbine for top-up electricity

Sagu (starch extracted from the pith of Sago palm stems) is a major staple food for the people of Halmahera; we built all four bungalows from the leftovers of the palm trees:

  • The roofs are made of dried pinnated Sago palm leafs, plaited by the local people
  • Dried sago palm ribs (gaba-gaba) form the walls

Together with the tiled floors the bungalows offer a perfect blend of traditional techniques and modern comfort, cool houses even during hot tropical afternoons.

CONSERVATION OF THE ENVIRONMENT

Our Sawai Eko Wisata foundation (www.sawai-ecotourism.com) targets conservation and education. Purchasing primary forest (400 hectares now), providing fresh water to the villagers, running a kindergarten in the village and building public toilets are some of the activities of this foundation. We work closely with many partners in the area to assure that the corals in Weda Bay remain in their pristine condition. One of these partners is Weda Bay Nickel, a mine which is scheduled to begin production in 2014. Weda Bay Nickel is committed to maintaining the highest environmental standards possible; no solid waste will be deposited at sea and we do not expect any significant impact on the reefs in the area.
