Ecomama perfectly marries the coziness of a community place with all comfort and luxury of a hotel and the meaningfulness of a social impact business. Everyone visiting Ecomama can experience the feeling of sustainable and joyful living. Visitors are encouraged to meet their fellow travellers. It is made easy to share and dream with other visitors about next trips in the large communal space, big kitchen or in a real teepee tent. Its 7 different types of rooms tailored to a wide variety of people, from the El Cheapo room for those on a shoestring, to a Double Deluxe for a romantic night for two. Apart from water saving system, green roof and cradle-to-cradle building materials, eco-consciousness can be found even in the details. Used materials, from bricks to teddy bears to corkscrews, are given a second, even better life, in the unique design furniture.
