ZOA is an eco-friendly hotel whose philosophy aims to reduce the environmental impact by employing sustainable best practices in maintenance, services, and supply chains. The property was also built by this philosophy. We are very respectful of the flora and fauna that are a natural part of this oasis and make every effort to maintain its original beauty. This has turned ZOA’s venues into perfect spots for enjoying nature’s sounds, views, and smells. Our measures include reducing energy and water consumption, aiming for zero waste generation, and using environmentally friendly products. We hope you can help us take care of this paradise!
