About the project Edit

Hotaï is a project which aims to finance, build, manage and market a united, unusual and innovative Eco Village. It targets travelers who are respectful of the environment and enjoy spending fulfilling vacations in search of serenity and comfort, while preserving and improving the local community through sharing knowledge. The project will be launched in 2012 in Senegal.


In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

Fair Tourism: The eco-lodge Hotaï invents a vacation concept that shows solidarity, heart and soul! At the tropical paradise beach of Palmarin, entirely private on the ocean, 25 cargo containers revisited by Matali Crasset were transformed into completely modern living spaces open to nature.
Sports, cultural exploration, humanitarian adventure or simply relaxing ...
Hotaï Village is an alternative experience where the values of authenticity, ethics and ecology become meaningful.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

Hotaï is an ecological and civic hotel project whose primary mission is to finance a local NGO - Afrikavenir. In fact some of the profits will be directly used to finance the development of a school that was established in 2004 under the leadership of Afrikavenir. In addition, travelers will be asked to contribute to development by sharing their knowledge with the local population.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

The first ecolodge pilot project will be built in Senegal. We intend to quickly open other sites in other countries located next to aid stations (clinics, schools, etc.)
