Akasha Is Doing It's Part

From the moment Akasha was penned, the onus on the design team was to create a ‘Green Home’. Everything, down to the way the home is orientated on the land, and the position of windows mean that our energy usage can be reduced.
Some of the highlights are:
  • Positioning of the home allows for a cross-breeze to flow through the property
  • Solar water heating for all functions including the hot tub
  • Low voltage lighting that is dimmed using a smart Lutron lighting system
  • Top of the line Air Conditioning system that is one of the most efficient in the world
  • Ceiling fans in every room that reduce the requirement for Air Conditioning
  • Advanced computer control for pool and water pumps reduces energy usage.

In addition to this we:

  • Utilize rain water for our landscaping and grey water systems
  • Reduced our dependency on sewer systems by installing a self contained septic system

Replacing Vegetation

We had to cut vegetation to build Akasha, however to date, we’ve already planted over 1000 local trees and plants. We grow local vegetation onsite with no pesticides, and our ground staff will be more than willing to share these with you during your stay.

We Want to Hear From You

If you have any ideas for us to further our green efforts, let us know! We'd love to hear from you.

If you'd like to help out with our green efforts, you can ask our housekeeping staff to replace your linens and towels every other day, and turning down the Air Conditioning by a couple of degrees can help our a lot! Some guests choose to use the ceiling fans and cross ventilation windows, and not use the Air Conditioning at all.
