Sustainability tips for your stay at Hamanasi:
Refill your water bottle for excursions to cut down on waste.
Reuse your towels to help reduce water and chemical use.
Have respect for local cultures and customs. Don’t judge. Listen and learn.
Dispose of all trash responsibly.
Ensure people’s enjoyment of nature in solitude by traveling quietly.
When diving and snorkeling never touch plant and animal life. Minimize fin movement, which stirs up sand that can choke the reef.

Stay on trails.
Do not take souvenirs from nature or archeological sites.
Turn off lights, water and air conditioners when you leave your room.
Minimize water use. Turn off taps when shaving or brushing teeth.
