As Kodavas we believe more in reverence towards nature and our ancestors then in the strict following of the Vedic principles. Hence, To live in harmony with nature is part of our culture. Everything that is Honey Valley or is related to it is born and nourished on this fundamental belief held fast since the time immemorial.
At Honey Valley our attempt is to help you experience the magnificence of nature and its inhabitants without disturbing or destroying, in its wake, anything that belongs to her. We generate a major share of the power required to run Honey Valley in the form of hydroelectricity. Till 2011, hydro electricity was the only form of electricity used at Honey Valley. Bath water is heated using solar power. Many of the vegetable, and most of the fruits served during meals is home-grown and organically cultivated. While regular vehicles cannot climb up to Honey Valley by default due to the nature of the path, we also prohibit 4x4s from entering the property. This is solely to reduce both air and noise pollution which adversely effect the wildlife population in the estate and the surrounding rainforest. Cows are grown in-house to provide both fresh milk and manure for organic farming.
Since hydro electricity is our major source of power, it is important for our guests to remember that neither the water source nor the electricity it helps produce here is limitless. Wasting either creates an essential resource vacuüm that debilitates our ability to offer guests like you many of the amenities we do today. So be considerate. Avoid wastage of electricity and water. Switch off lights when not necessary. Don’t leave mobile phones connected to power sockets even after they are fully charged. If not necessary, try to make up with one bath a day. Every little thing you do in conserving power and water goes a long way in helping other guests enjoy the experience of Honey Valley just like you wish to. Moreover, it prevents over-taxing the natural reserves that sustain and support the natural wildlife in the region. Do coöperate with us in maintaining the delicate balance between use and abuse of nature’s reserves.
