Community & Conservation

Milele Villas take great pride in their rich natural surroundings. Air-conditioning has not been installed, the villas have instead been cleverly constructed – in an eco-friendly fashion – to benefit from the cool sea breezes.

Electricity is supplied by wind power, and hot water is heated by the sun. Collected rainwater is used to water the garden, which is used to grow papayas and passion fruits.

All fruits and vegetables are handpicked locally, and meat and fish is also local produce.

The villas are constructed from local natural materials and furnished with recycled dhow (Arabic boats).
