TIEEDI Dwellings are infused with unique details and personal touches that create a one-of-a-kind experience for guests. From handcrafted structures made of locally sourced materials like mud and bamboo to thoughtful design elements that blend seamlessly with the natural surroundings, each dwelling reflects a commitment to sustainability and eco-conscious living.

With a focus on creating meaningful connections with nature and fostering a sense of belonging, TIEEDI Dwellings offer a truly unforgettable stay for every guest.
