Guesthouse-Living Room In an effort to decrease energy consumption, our room sensors automatically detect light levels, increasing and reducing the bulb brightness. Thermostats with occupancy sensors adjust heating and AC temperatures; in addition our guests can connect to room amenities and adjust setting remotely.

Our rooms are decorated using non-toxic chemical-free paint; for decoration elements we choose eco-friendly material such as bamboo, organic fabrics, reclaimed and recycled wood and leather.
