Suarga Padang Padang is built upon the three pillars of sustainability: environmental, social, and economical.
A majority of the resort's structures are built on stilts in an effort to preserve the indigenous flora and fauna and to promote natural cooling air circulation. As a registered applicant of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), the resort is predominantly built using recuperated wood from abandoned ironwood pontoons in Borneo, broken down teak houses, old factories, other FSC-certified materials, and bamboo.
