We have strictly followed the environment compliance guidelines set by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MOEF&CC) and have a CRZ / MOEF&CC clearance.


Construction is a water-intensive process. To preserve the water table, we left the ground water in the area untouched and used the bare minimum amount of fresh water during construction. Furthermore, for maintenance, we harvest rainwater during the monsoon and have installed sewage treatment plants that treat wastewater, which is reused to keep the landscape lush and well irrigated. A truly eco-friendly system, the STP we have chosen to use consumes minimal power and works silently. Our pressure boosting hydro pneumatic system ensures water pressure is managed prudently, minimizing wastage. The gardens that surround you here are equipped with drip and sprinkler irrigation systems - another conscious choice for the careful use of resources. The dual flush technology in the bathrooms is very low in water consumption, as are the faucets that aerate the water as it pours out, thereby reducing wastage.


Our Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) uses a bio-filtration system, which is designed to substantially degrade harmful content of organic waste, along with detergent, soap and other chemical ingredients that may be harmful to the environment. Our villas are equipped with a well-deliberated waste management program. We strictly follow all the norms of solid waste management laid down by the Central/State Pollution Control Board. Organic waste convertors and compost pits help us convert solid waste into biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste. All non- biodegradable waste is segregated into paper, plastic, metal etc. and disposed accordingly to an authorized recycler.


All the lights on the property are energy-saving: either CFL or LED lights. These last much longer than traditional lights, reducing the frequency of replacement and thus your carbon footprint. We use a radiant barrier used in Monier roofing tiles that reflects 97% of the sun’s radiation, thereby reducing the temperature within a villa to up to 5 degrees Celsius. This, in turn, reduces the strain on air- conditioning.

Our Daikin air-conditioners are built on Smart Tech VRV systems, which automatically save energy by detecting whether a room is occupied or not. The VRV machine can also be controlled from a centralized location. This helps us divert power / cooling from areas in the villas which are not being used to areas which are being used. We use the sunshine in Goa to our advantage with a heat-based water heating system. It uses 70% less electricity compared to conventional water heating solutions. It works on a principle where the heat is absorbed from the surrounding air to heat the water and throws out cool air that is then used to cool the reception area. We use Energy Star appliances like televisions, refrigerators etc. to increase our overall energy efficiency.


Before beginning the development of this property, we consulted with experts and authorities to assess the ecological value of the site, and took the necessary steps while planning in order to minimize the damage to the native ecology of the area. Our landscape consultants ensured that we planted native species of foliage that would encourage, nurture and provide a welcoming habitat for indigenous wildlife. And no earth was displaced - all the topsoil excavated during construction was reused onsite for leveling and landscaping.


In a former life, the wooden doors and windows at Praya Villas resided in century-old mansions and monuments. We worked with local artisans and craftsmen to restore them to their original splendor, and give them a fresh lease of life. Walk about at Praya, and amidst the lush greenery, you’ll find some charming old windows, some with stained glass, carved doors, intricate balcony grills, all laden with stories of a time gone by.

Across the property, we’ve used locally available materials such as the local Goan laterite stone to reduce our carbon footprint. We have also reduced the amount of cement and steel used by designing the structures of the villas efficiently. The high quality UPVC doors and windows, made from recyclable material, are energy efficient and insulate the insides of your villa against dust and pollution. Ambient air and noise quality are closely monitored on a regular basis, to ensure we do not disturb the surrounding ecological system and neighboring community. Our passion for protecting the sensitive coastal and marine ecosystem is real. The landscape architecture design concept is based on beachfront landscape features, with ecologically sensitive ground cover and sand dunes along the coastal terrain with special attention to the turtle nesting habitats along the western side.


As a protective measure, the sand dune chains in Praya’s vicinity are untouched and kept undisturbed. We have also protected them by planting dune plants and erecting a fence so they are not overrun. Some of the species grown on our beach are Bayhops (also known as Beach Morning Glory), Legume, India privet, and various types of grass families.


As a part of our measures to give back and conserve the environment, we are in the process of implementing a robust turtle conservation and management plan in association with CEE and Goa Forest Department, which will protect the endangered Olive Ridley turtle nesting sites on our beach. The plan includes protection of the nesting area, a rescue and rehabilitation facility and promoting awareness on the subject in the hope that, together, the community will value the precious ecosystem that has been bestowed on us for safekeeping.


"My family and I stayed at one of the Praya villas in 2021, for a period of 4 months. Our experience there was nothing less than true bliss. Due to the in-depth involvement and attention to detail by the owners, the same values and philosophy percolated downstream, which gave its guests a non- compromised experience filled with utter joy. The property is by far one of its kind; nestled in a cute campus which enjoys huge areas of manicured gardens and play areas. A step further brings you to the priceless Morjim beach- considered one of the best beaches in north Goa. The staff and service was impeccable. With great F&B as well as an army of service staff who kept the entire campus and habitable areas flawless. If I were to visit Morjim again, there is no other place I would consider other than Praya!"
