Chemical Free Mosquito Repellants

Every year we try to come up with a new eco project. Last year it was up-cycling and this was not only a great way to reuse our waste from the resort, but also fun to do and provided some useful new things around the resort:
New Screens for the Cozy Bamboo Bungalows
- Tables on the balconies for the air con and family bungalows
- Shelves for the bathrooms
- Roof for the bike shed
- Walls for the recycling area
- Fence for the Standard Fan Area
- Screens for the Cozy Fan Bamboo Bungalows.
New Bike Shed
All these things were made up from broken or outdated items that could have just ended up in the trash.
New Tables for the Air Conditioned Balconies
This year we have been investigating providing chemical free mosquito repellents for the rooms. Did you know that there are many plants that Mosquitoes do not like and just adding a little garden pot to each balcony can reduce them (well that is the theory).
New Plants for the Balconies
So 2 days ago, we started to grow, from seed, some of the plants we are looking to incorporate into plant pots on, firstly the Standard Fan Bamboo Bungalows, and if it is successful, all around the resort. We are currently growing, Coriander, Basil and Marigolds. But I am still trying to find Citronella, Lavender and Rosemary. We think that not only will it repel the mosquitoes, but it will look pretty and smell wonderful.
