The brainchild of British couple Mark and Sujeewa Reynolds, Friday’s Place boasts four placid teak cottages in addition to the Tsunami House which is considered the “honeymoon suite.” The resort was built so that each accommodation was surrounded by its own canal, making them both private and minimally intrusive to the environment.
In terms of eco-friendliness, sustainable hardwood has been used throughout the construction, as well as palm thatch which grows locally and is renewed annually. The entire resort is solar powered  and sensible use of lighting and fans is encouraged to minimize energy  expenditure. A bio-electric plant ensures clean water output and water for bathing is pumped and filtered right from the canal. If you get hungry, organic produce is brought in daily from the local market and is often cooked outside on open fires (chulas) fueled by palm waste.
