Alma Resort in Cam Ranh, Vietnam has an on-site farm that supplies organic vegetables for guests’ meals and beverages at its restaurants.
The 30-hectare beachfront resort’s farm produces an array of fruits and vegetables in the 1,000m² nursery garden, as well as fresh herbs from the 180m² herb garden. It even has a 260m² chicken farm which currently houses 17 hens, six roosters and 18 chicks.
These transformations at the family resort were the handiwork of landscape manager Ngo Duc Thinh and his team. They also organise complimentary garden tours for the whole family, sharing tips on how to cultivate a veggie patch at home, and teaching children how to care for chickens.
Cooking classes by the farm will soon be offered to guests, where they get to pick and clean their ingredients to cook their own healthy meals.
Other green measures by Alma include using leftovers from the resort’s kitchens as compost, watering the farm with recycled water, with plans to have a water treatment plant, electric buggy station, recycling in its garbage room and transitioning to paperless solutions with the Alma App.
