Surrounded by abundant beauty of nature, the award-winning eco-resort was built to work with nature and not against it. According to Chan, not a single tree was cut to accommodate the development. Likewise, its surrounding lake and landscape have been left undisturbed. Swimming and fishing in the lake—except on rare occasions and under strictly controlled conditions—are prohibited by the management of The Haven. This is to allow the ecosystem of the lake to thrive naturally. With plenty of fish swimming in its waters, The Haven’s lake has attracted otters to choose the lake as their habitat.
