A sustainable and eco-friendly stay is fundamental to the ethos of Navutu. Enjoy our pristine natural resort where the focus is on environmental responsibility through renewable energy sources, recycling services, eco-friendly packaging, locally-sourced food, UV filters and water refill stations to ensure a positive relationship with nature and the local community. We also offer free yoga class to all Khmer nationals every Monday to help and provide the proper selfcare and fitness they need.
Eco-Friendly Food Packaging
At Navutu, we are committed to helping eliminate single-use plastic, one of the biggest environmental issues for Cambodia. Our eco-friendly food packaging for takeaway meals is made from natural and biodegradable ingredients, primarily sugarcane harvested in Cambodia.
Together with our eco-friendly food packaging, we understand the need to stop the use of plastic bags. We are proud to use one of Southeast Asia’s root vegetables, cassava, as the main source of biodegradable bags. These bags are used in our rooms, by housekeeping and for takeaways.
Refill Stations & UV Water Filters
Navutu guests can now refill their own water bottles in our resort for free. As part of our mission to help reduce the use of plastic, we encourage our guests to carry reusable bottles by offering convenient refill points. All refill stations are supplied with UV filtered water that is clean and safe to drink.
Made locally in Siem Reap, our mosquito repellent contains lemongrass and clove, know for their natural insect repellent properties. Combined with a mix of essential oils, this repellent is 100% organic, very efficient and unlike other repellents, it also smells good. Suitable for adults and kids of age 3 and above.
Locally Grown Produce
At Navutu Dreams, we strongly value our local community and our commitment to increasing our focus on sustainable food. We source out locally-grown produce and use only garden-fresh ingredients as possible. Guests are guaranteed of an exceptional ‘farm-to-table‘ dining experience.
We believe that locals are the best people we can have and we want to contribute and support our local community by helping them through job employment. It provides personal development and empowers the lives of underprivileged families. We take pride in our staff and to their success.
Our small boutique is packed with locally sourced ethical brands to show off the best of Siem Reap to our guests and encourage them to shop locally. We stock homewares, clothes and souvenirs all from brands who are committed to supporting local artisans and to using the best natural products from Cambodia.
Recycled Plastic Tablemats
It’s hard to believe that our stylish placemats used to be dirty plastic bags on the roadside. Working with a social enterprise located close to Navutu, we are proud to support Rehash Trash who also provide a safe place for disadvantaged women to learn a skill and earn an income.
Natural Navutu Soap
Our handcrafted organic soaps and scrubs are not only environmentally friendly but also nourishing for the skin, using locally sourced ingredients. We have worked with local artisans to create the best products for our guests whilst supporting the local community at the same time.
Refillable Glass Bottles
To help in the fight against plastic, all of our guests are given clean and sterilized glass bottles in their room. We encourage our guests to use our refill stations positioned throughout the resort for free. They can also purchase our beautiful glass bottles to take part in this environmental campaign.
In support to our community, we help donate our used cooking oil from the kitchen, which is then upcycled into biodiesel. This is then used as a clean alternative to diesel with 90% less hydrocarbon emissions, helping to create a safer environment with clean air for the local community to breathe
Plastic straws are replaced by bamboo straws as we continue to eliminate the use of single-use plastic in our resort. We make sure our straws are sterilized and 100% safe for our customer’s use. Guests can also purchase our reusable straws in our Boutique, to carry on the fight against plastic when they return home.
