Bawah Reserve, Anambas, Riau Islands - Indonesia

They harvest, treat and store the rainwater, and have a sophisticated reverse-osmosis seawater treatment plant, utilising multi-stage filtration technology. Water is heated by solar energy; wastewater is treated for permacultures to use on organic fruit and vegetable gardens; and pesticides are banned. Due to the official marine conservation status of the Reserve, fishing, anchoring and collection of any marine life is forbidden; and so that the island does not suffer tourist trampling, only 35 suites have been built.And each guest gets to take home it very own eco-friendly gift: a beautifully design copper drinking bottle.
