Aquiles eco hotel is a new structure of design, located 10km far from Mindelo, in Sao Pedro’s bay, one of the most beautiful beaches of the island. The Aquiles Eco Hotel, reflects in its fullness and essence the ecological philosophy of total environment integration. The hotel provides their guests with 12 double rooms with private bathroom. All the rooms in the Eco-Hotel are made of FSC (forest stewardship council) certificated wood, and also the furniture are designed and made entirely with recycled wood. The Eco-Hotel re-use water in order to preserve as much as possible this precious global resource, so essential in Cape Verde. The Eco-Hotel’s aim is to use total clean energy, because in our vision this is the better way to ensure a sustainable architecture. The entire construction process is semi-handmade, by the work of local artisans and workmen as a way to distribute the goods within the local community. The guests can enjoy the local life, taking their meals in the little familiar restaurants of the village recently opened, they can also go fishing with the local fishermen in their artisanal boats. They use collective transports (hiace) for their trips to the city, Mindelo, or just relax and enjoy the wonderful sunset at Sao Pedro’s beach.
