Travel Experience

Arakan Nature Lodge stands for the adventure of bringing a positive impact in an environment-loving, culturally sensitive way to one of Myanmar's most beautiful, peaceful yet deprived regions - to Southern Rakhine State.

Responsibility

Arakan Nature Lodge is 100% solar powered 24h/day. Our sanitation concept embodies true eco lodge practices, introducing composting toilets as well as recycling the kitchen and laundry grey water, running it through a wastewater garden to reuse it for irrigation. The safeguarding of our lodge’s unspoilt grounds with an emphasis on nature preservation, with careful attention to the surrounding areas of our village and the marine environment.

Business Case

Arakan Nature Lodge is engaging with respectful investments and poverty alleviation initiatives in peaceful southern Rakhine State, considered one of the most downtrodden states of Myanmar. We will create job opportunities in and around lovely Zikhone village, working with the assets and true potential it already has towards ecotourism. We build the lodge with local carpenter teams from the villages around. Thus we can ensure that a significant share of the cash to be spent during the building phase goes directly to our community members as building fees. We rebuild traditional Rakhine houses with recycled wood, sustainable, local building materials and manual techniques. We let natural beauty reveal itself unobstructed and share with our guests the cool and cosy logic of natural living as if staying in our village.
