The Community

The lovely people at Topas Ecolodge work closely with their local community and listen to their needs. Most of the staff here is made up of local community members, many having received education and training here. Using profits, Topas also supports the local school to ensure the next generation benefits from the lodge.

The Sustainability

Apart from boasting their very special permaculture garden, the hotel operates on wholly renewable energy, and electricity is kept to a minimum (no that means you can bring your hairdryer). Waste is recycled or responsibly disposed, and single-use plastic is only used when essential.
