All water for showers is heated by solar water heaters. Solar panels and wind turbines (during windy weather) provide additional power. They have dug a well and will install a desalinator for clean water for showers, washing hands and running the swimming pool. Not for drinking! Bottled water will be provided for drinking. Water from showers, etc. will be collected and recycled as water for the garden. They have also planted fruit trees throughout the property and although they have not reached maturity, they will supply the hotel when they eventually mature.
