Going Green

Somervreug is not only at the forefront of modern luxury, but of conserving our natural resources. Regardless of your take on climate change, we must all be aware that these resources are limited and that we are all responsible for looking after them.

All rainwater that falls on our roofs is captured and stored. We are equipped to store up to 40 000 litres of rainwater. This water is purified and used in our showers. Our very own purifying and filtration plant cleans our bottled drinking water, making it the safest, cleanest, most natural water you’re likely to have.

In a bid to avoid coal generated energy, all our geysers are powered by gas. All lights are fitted with LED bulbs and we’ll be installing solar panels in the future to take us as far off the grid as possible. We have already laid all cables for this system and constructed the battery room.

We are proud of our commitment to the environment and, while you are welcome to enjoy the luxury on offer at Somervreug, ask you to join us in using water sparingly.
