Completed in 2017, Z9 boasts of using discarded timber and recycling wood in its architecture. Wastewater is also treated before being released into the lake, minimizing pollution and protecting its natural surroundings.

Going with a big group? You can request for ‘Escape North’ rooms. An extra bed is provided to accommodate three people per room. 

Other than breakfast (which is included), you can have lunch and dinner at the resort’s main restaurant as well. You can also indulge in water sports such as kayaking and jet skiing.
