Ceningan Eco Resort
When we took over the Jetty Resort earlier this year, we drafted our business and action plans. As part of our commitment, our operation will follow eco-friendly practices and promote awareness through educational programs. We also want to limit our impact on our community and Ceningan island.
With that in mind, we are renovating our facilities. We are adding a water collection system on our main building. We dug a new well, installed seveal water reservoirs to ensure that our capacity and consumption does not impact the local community. We are installing new energy saving appliances; AC units, fans, light bulbs, and low volume shower heads in our bungalows to reduce our energy and water consumption.
While we are doing these renovations, we are doing our best to use local materials and suppliers to reduce our carbon footprint. We are using organic material whenever possible, and we are installing bioseptic tanks to process the grey water from the showers, sinks and toilets of our resort’s 8 bungalows and restaurant facilities.
As a PADI 5 Start Dive Resort we will also dedicate a good part of energy in promoting Project AWARE educational programs, actions, and participate in fundraising innitiatives.
