Kilwa Hotel Room

Eco Room

Are you looking for a different Kilwa Hotel Room?

How about the SuperAdobe Eco Room at Kilwa beach lodge built with moon landing technology – not your usual Kilwa Hotel Room. The owners of Kilwa Beach Lodge have been involved through family ties with the environmental building world for many years and wanted at their hotel in Kilwa, hotel rooms which were different.

In 2012 in association with KIYODEA, a local charity, we began offering courses in environmental building using methods including superadobe and bottle walling. All buildings at the hotel have some aspects of eco building but not as many as this flagship room, being the first of its kind in Africa. 

These methods, long abandoned by most of the developed world, have been given a modern twist through the innovative ideas of a revolutionary architect, the late Nader Khalili. While working on a solution for building lunar bases using sandbag blocks attached with velcro, he invented a building technology called super-adobe and founded the CalEarth Institute in California to share his knowledge.

In fact, eco-domes share  many traits with those found in nature, not only do they seamlessly blend with the natural landscape, but they offer an alternative sustainable form of housing for the future as you can see a stay here is not your usual Kilwa Hotel Room

Spent a long weekend here with the family as an getaway from the hustle and bustle of Dar.

A fantastic place – so quiet and peaceful and set in the most beautiful of bays. Just what we all needed to get some R+R. Great food, especially the seafood and a very friendly team – Dave and Maxwell made us all feel so welcome.

Would definitely recommend.
