The philosophy of the Retreat is to care for and conserve nature and to provide our guests with an experience in the forest which emphasizes on the importance of conserving the delicate balance between man and nature.

The retreat endeavors is to propagate this concept and to bring about awareness as to how fragile and precious our natural resources are in this age of global warming.
