A passion and deep concern for the environment is reflected in the design and construction of 98 Acres Resort and Spa. The Eco-friendly concept and design has ensured that the majority of materials used in the construction have been recycled.
'Illuk' straw has been used liberally in the interior and thatching of the roofs to maintain cool temperatures, giving it a true Sri Lankan identity and elegance.

The furniture has been made by expert artisans from the locality using local and widely available timber which helps create a warm and rustic atmosphere. Rough hewn granite rock lends a simple, hand crafted elegance to the look and feel of each villa.
The golf buggies used in the transportation of guests within the hotel compound is a part of the Eco-friendly concept.
