What makes you unique?
At The Racha, guests rest easy knowing the resort abides by the highest standards of eco-responsible tourism. All the resort’s structures are built in harmony with the island’s natural topography. No land was cut or filled in the building process. Through a series of innovatively designed gutter drains and underground sump tanks, rainwater run-off is pumped back to the center of the island and allowed to flow back freely into the ground, replenishing the earth’s water bank. Minimizing rainwater run-off from flowing into the sea that would otherwise be detrimental to coral life in the bay. The coconut tree, the symbol of The Racha, takes pride of place at the resort. Many of the trees you see are the island’s original inhabitants. Villas were built around them. For every coconut tree that was cut, two were planted to replace it.
The Anumba Spa uses the highest-grade essential oils and organic spa products. Whenever possible, only the highest quality locally sourced, paraben-free spa products are used.
