Vinboho is a superb venue for hosting a company or personal function such as a baby shower, bridal shower, high tea, workshops, business breakfast forums and conferencing. We believe nothing is impossible, so contact us and we will gladly arrange and co-ordinate any event for you.
We consider ourselves as part of the environment and understand there are others who share our planet, so we try our best to accommodate everyone. There might be beautiful bird sounds early in the morning, frogs croaking late at night and you may see the odd spider. We won`t apologise for embracing nature, and ask that you please enjoy it with us.
Natural light is the best light. It adds warmth on chilly winter days, cuts costs and generates a desirable atmosphere.
To be as environmentally friendly as possible, we switch off all outside lights at 22h00 each night. There is an LED lamp in your room in case you need it.
We use energy-efficient LED lights and halogen energy saving globes, which use significantly less energy than standard bulbs. Motion and daylight sensors installed in our guest bathrooms further reduce energy usage. This means you donâ€™t need to search for light switches, fumble in the dark or switch off the lights when leaving the guest bathrooms.
Most of our green food and flowers are grown on the premises; the rest is sourced from other Slow Food Movement suppliers. Food waste is given to our worms or processed in compost buckets for use in our garden. Facilities at Vinboho:
