The landscaping consists of only local fauna — determined by an extensive study of the grounds. There is an extensive grey water system combined with a rain water cistern under each villa that provides water for the toilets and gardens. A series of bio-swales and rain gardens throughout the development manage storm water, and even the sewage water is reclaimed onsite. The domestic hot water is heated using heat pumps. Power is currently provided by biodiesel generators powered by organic waste from the resort, but the site will eventually use electricity generated from wind farms on the peninsula.
