ORRO UKKA VILLAGE

The village of Orro Ukka is nestled in a lush tropical forest overlooking the coastline of the Indian Ocean. Its strong connection to nature, with an emphasis on sustainable practices and living in harmony with the environment are the cornerstones of our approach to its further development.

By going back to basics and reconnecting with the natural world, we aim to create a new standard of luxury that is both timeless and sustainable.

From the initial drawing to the final touches, the entirety of the village development is envisaged and executed by Zanossa’s own teams of engineers, architects, technicians, carpenters, designers, and artisans.

Locally sourced natural building materials

In addition to being non-toxic for us and our environment, locally sourced building materials are adapted to local climate and weather conditions making them durable while preserving cultural heritage and traditions passed down through generations.

Using locally sourced materials reduces transportation costs and emissions associated with long-distance transportation.

Environmentally friendly solutions

Green roofs and walls which help to cool buildings and improve air quality coupled with rainwater harvesting systems, low-flow fixtures, and greywater reuse systems.

In a place that enjoys abundance of sun exposure our buildings are designed to incorporate solar panels and solar water heaters to generate electricity and hot water.

Greenhouse Garden

Being a self-sufficient village, we operate our own greenhouse garden, bringing quality fresh produce to local village chefs whose mission is to deliver revisited and traditional culinary experiences to our guests.

Swahili cuisine is renowned for its rich and vibrant flavors, which are achieved through the expert use of aromatic spices, as well as a focus on fresh and high-quality ingredients.

This cuisine places particular emphasis on the use of seafood, coconut, and tropical fruits, which are abundant along the East African coast, and which lend a unique and enticing character to Swahili dishes.
