To keep our eco-footprint light, we use energy-efficient fridges in our kitchens, which we turn off at night. We also use coal cold rooms and cellars to store heat-sensitive items.The sustainable operation of Machaba Saffaris is based on solar technology, biological water treatment and residue-free waste management.
