The KOHO offers truly sustainable solutions that benefit both the environment and the local communities. We exercise our commitment to sustainability through the policies, procedures, and programs at our hotels. Join us in our journey towards a more sustainable future, and a more beautiful world.
The KOHO is committed to reducing plastic waste and using products that are locally sourced & environmentally friendly.
Minimising Plastic Use
25 million tonnes of single-use plastics are poured into our oceans each year, damaging its natural beauty and killing marine life.
Koho aims to minimize this by replacing plastic items used in our hotels with more eco-friendly alternatives, provided only upon request so as to reduce waste.
» Using glass bottles instead of plastic bottles
» Bamboo toothbrushes
» Reusable straws and cups
» Reusable trash bags

95% Organic toiletries

REsource and Waste Management
Effective use of resources and managing waste by reducing, reusing, and recycling helps us to our part for the local environment.
