Asia’s Premier Eco Luxury Holiday Escape…
A holiday infused with activities and meaning
An all–in–one package that has it all:
– World #1 Eco Tourism operator’s activities (see photos above)
– First-class accommodation
– Proximity: Right next to Singapore
EarthFest Singapore, a program of the charity Centre for a Responsible Future, has teamed up with LooLa, the World #1 Eco Tourism Operator, to create a holiday experience that demonstrates that luxury and sustainability can go together:
Combine LooLa’s all-day long eco and adventure programs – see photos above and below! – with the 5 star accommodation of its neighbour, the Residence.
Not only can you offset the carbon emissions of your travelling to LooLa, but you can take part in planting new mangroves that form new habitat and capture CO2!
Safe Water Garden
In a few hours you can make a lifetime of difference by building a Safe Water Garden for a local family. This will help save lives through improved sanitation and eliminate groundwater pollution in the area.
Situated among mangroves and forests and the ocean’s intertidal zone, you’ll be able to explore the local biodiversity – perhaps even see fireflies at night!
If you want to make it zero waste, LooLa will help you make that happen during the day with refillable water stations, disposable-free food and visiting their local zero waste snack shop.
Indonesia has a long tradition of plant-based foods bursting with flavor! You have access to this menu featuring local ingredients and recipes by the local Indonesian chefs. Get ready to try something new!
Part of minimalism is choosing experiences over material things. In addition to the experiences already discussed, you’ll experience Indonesian culture, try various adventure activities and much more.
Rest in Luxury
After a full day of activities and helping others with LooLa, spend your evenings and nights in the peaceful seclusion of The Residence Bintan, a neighboring luxury resort on the shores of the largest island in Indonesia’s Riau Archipelago, nestled amid nature’s splendour with sweeping views across a calm bay.
