The Lighthouse

  • Each property takes its turn every month to host a dinner for about 120 people at the centre consisting of simple yet healthy dishes such as rice, fried noodles, vegetables, chicken or fish based dishes and fruits.
  • Items such as used clothes, linen, bath towels and slippers are also donated to the centre.

Turtle Conservation Programme

  • The programme provides joint educational activities with schools and NGOs. Members of the public and resort guests can participate in guided tours, watch turtle hatchings as well as partake in releasing turtles into the sea.
  • A turtle Eco Centre has been established at the resort as an information centre on turtle conservation.
  • The resort has also launched a fund raising programme to help raise funds for the Turtle Conservation Centre to purchase satellite tracking devices meant for mature turtles. The fund raising programme includes the sale of souvenirs such as t-shirts bearing turtle motifs, clay figurines and specially hand-painted turtle fridge magnets made by children from The Association of Resource and Education for Autistic Children (REACh). Hand made glass pendants and glass sculptures are available from the resort’s Gift Shop. Part of the proceeds from the sale of merchandise will be channelled towards this fund raising programme.
