The Eco Beach Tent by Billiton in Indonesia has officially opened. The eco-focused hotel is located on the island of Belitung on the east coast of Sumatra. The philosophy of the hotel is based on a holistic connection with nature,the basison which the resort was built.
The architectural concept was adapted from the traditional stage house.To protect the environment and reduce the CO2 footprint, the tents in the Eco Beach Tent by Billiton were built from local wood and natural materials. Whenever possible, recycled timber and stranded wood was used. During construction, the resort also minimized the clearing of vegetation, excavation, and chemical use.The property comprises eight luxury tents handmade mostly from dolken logs with reusable tensile membrane or nipa palm roofs. Surrounding private islands are also available for rent.
