A key consideration in our approach to developing Cempedak was to work with the local communities on Bintan and neighbouring islands. Not only do many of our staff come from these communities but the island supports these communities by sourcing supplies locally.
From the outset, building and operating Cempedak along strict sustainable principles has been at the forefront of the development plans for the island. Not only was Cempedak built and is operated using local materials, labour and services but the owners have taken this one step further and taught many of their contractors and staff new trades and techniques. This not only makes operational sense but it also means that in the long run there is a mutual respect with the local community and the staff and tradesman take greater pride in their work.
