Green Retreat Center: Prana Del Mar

A few simple steps can go a long way to make a retreat center environmentally responsible. Housing hundreds of guests a year comfortably takes many resources and materials. 

  • All of our electricity comes from solar panels installed throughout the property
  • Our pool is solar heated
  • The floors of our yoga studios are strand-woven bamboo
  • Our waste water is treated on-site and reused to irrigate the gardens
  • We included skylights in our design to increase natural lighting
  • All light fixtures and appliances were chosen with energy efficiency in mind
  • Organic sheets, bath towels, and bath mats
  • Rather than washing linens and towels every day, we allow guests the option to reuse linens to reduce water usage
  • We use cloth hand towels and napkins instead of paper
  • Our garden is organic – no pesticides or herbicides
  • We compost excess food and organic materials and use them as fertilizer
  • Aerated showerheads for great water pressure at low flow rates & low-flow toilets
  • We provide organic personal care products – shampoo, conditioner, cleaners, and lotions – all purchased in bulk and supplied in dispensers to reduce single-use containers
  • We utilize green cleaning products
  • We recycle wherever possible and use primarily rechargeable batteries
  • We offer purified drinking water and give every guest a refillable bottle to reduce wasting single-use plastic bottles
  • If you purchase carbon offsets for your plane flight, we’ll credit you that amount (up to $50 USD) toward any massage, spa service, surf lesson, or other excursion

We purposefully choose retreat centers that commit to treading lightly on the incredible landscapes where they reside. Decreasing your waste and consuming less without compromising luxury takes planning and passion for the earth. We appreciate every business we work with’s commitment to the planet!
