Create more, consume less; embrace every opportunity to learn and improve; be innovative and committed; inspire others to positive change; and always look to nature – that is our philosophy. Living walls, green roofs, 100% recycled wood and entirely local materials unify accommodations with our extraordinary landscape.

Living Design

Living roofs are planted with native creepers and sedums like water grass, beach purslane and dwarf bamboo. Water gardens, swales and rainwater channelling have been incorporated into the meticulous design to help minimise erosion. Harvested rainwater and natural fertilisers nourish the grounds and edible gardens. Tea, cinnamon, lemongrass and bamboo follow the contours that lead down to the lake, where a forest path of endemic trees and mangroves attracts native butterflies and nesting birds.

Harnessing Natural Power

Guided by local green consultancy Carbon Consulting Company, Tri is intent on reducing its carbon footprint annually and promoting sustainable practices at all times, including the careful monitoring of water and electricity consumption. Solar PV panels and solar arrays harvest natural power, with energy use minimised through the latest appliance inverter technology and LED lighting (which also limits disturbance to the biotic community).

Natural Local Materials

Windows, doors, flooring and cladding have been crafted from entirely recycled local jak wood. Cinnamon sticks are used on exteriors to blend buildings into the land, enhance privacy and regulate temperature. Balconies and terraces are finished with natural pebble wash made from stones sifted from on-site construction sand. Three forms of local granite – natural, handpicked and bush-hammered -are used to create pathways, flooring, steps, vanities and shower walls.

Improving the site

Tri is committed to reversing habitat degradation, increasing flora and fauna diversity (a total of 51 bird species, 18 butterflies and 9 dragonflies were identified on site prior to construction), and planting indigenous trees and bushes.  A mangrove planting and shoreline protection programme has also been initiated to tackle lakeshore erosion.
