Energy Management

~To reduce energy and water consumption, along with the use of chemicals, the hotel only changes the bed linen every 3 days or upon check-out, unless guests request more frequently. They only change towels on request as well

~ Uses a solar energy system to heat the water

Water & Wastewater Management

~Have an advanced sewage system that includes a high tech treatment plant to ensure significant breakdown of waste

Waste Management

No plastic waste
~There is no single-use plastic in the bedrooms. This means:no plastic water bottles or containers – the hotel only uses glass and filtered water
~No plastic bin liners or bags are found in the rooms – all of the packaging is made onsite from linen or cotton (slipper bags, laundry bags, amenity rolls, toilet paper covers and hairdryer bags, for example). The bins are made from water hyacinth with washable liners
~No plastic straws – the hotel uses bamboo or paper instead
~Partners with Plastic Free Cambodia to eliminate all single use plastics from the back of house operations

~Staff is trained on plastic waste
~In order to reduce wastage, the hotel does not stock amenities such as a toothbrush or razor in rooms, however these are available on request and all items are eco-friendly, made from wood or bamboo
~ There are no plastic or Styrofoam takeaway containers at Treeline. They use palm leaf and eco-friendly cardboard instead from Siam Eco Pack

~ Refill not Landfill refillable aluminum water bottles are available for guests to reduce the need to have plastic water bottles outside of the hotel


Other waste

~Donate used cooking oil to Naga Earth, who make biodiesel from the oil. Treeline then buys back the biodiesel for use in the hotel. The waste product is made into hand soap, which Naga Earth donate to communities through their hygiene education program.

~ Compost their food waste onsite

~Recycle all of their glass. The glass bottles are collected and upcycled by GAEA, a solid waste management company that also works with the government and the private sector to raise environmental awareness within the community

Local Support

~Commissioned local pottery studio Loyuyu to help design and create all of Treeline’s hand-crafted ceramics, from the vases, amenity containers, trays, tissue boxes and planters in the guest rooms to the oil burners, bottles and decorative pieces in SURI Spa and the dinnerware in all of the restaurants

~Supports a number of micro businesses in Siem Reap. A local woodcarver, from Sray Srong, makes the palm wood items in the hotel, while the take-away containers are made by local villagers from palm leaves

~Tree planting along the riverside and throughout the city
~Takes part in the Clean Up Siem Reap Campaign – regular, organised clean-up days of Siem Reap
~ Sponsors various environmental campaigns including Plastic Free Cambodia, Naga Earth, Clean Green Cambodia and Ocean Recovery Alliance
~ Regular fundraising support and sponsorship to several local NGOs and community events

Environmentally-friendly purchase

~There is no fumigation with toxic chemicals (as many hotels do)

~Sources locally grown, chemical-free vegetables and herbs from Happy & Co. Farm, an organic agriculture set-up on the fringes of Siem Reap

~Created a line of bespoke spa products made onsite by their talented and dedicated team at SURI Spa. Use only natural, locally sourced and, when possible, organic ingredients of the highest quality. Reinforcing the spa menu are product lines by other Siem Reap-based brands: hand-crafted formulas by ethical eco-lifestyle label Saarti for facials, and organic essential oils crafted by Botanik Essence in their hand-blended wraps, compresses and scrub

~Sources the in-room amenities (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, hand wash, body lotion, mosquito spray, room spray) from local, natural cosmetic company, Kambio

~Employs water hyacinth weavers working with the local NGO and eco-tourism project Osmose to produce their bin covers. Osmose delivers much-needed environmental conservation initiatives throughout the Tonle Sap – the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia – as well as support to the families living in the floating villages of this remote part of Cambodia
