Sixteen separate and individually decorated Villas each have their own hiding place amongst the verdant trees and night eyes. Four of the Villas are interconnected for parties travelling together.

Settle into seamless luxury where under floor heating takes the edge off the night chill, sunsets rival satellite television and chattering birds outdo internet connectivity.

Expect full amenities, a well stocked bar fridge, air conditioning, heated towel rails, laundry service, work area and large private viewing deck.

Soak in a bath with a view, wrap yourself in a sumptuous fluffy gown and sink into a giant bed adorned with 1000 thread count percale linen and a choice of down or allergy-free pillows.

Streams trickle gently around the units while linked wooden walkways connect the Villa’s to the Spa, Lodge and dining area.

All food is freshly prepared and organic by nature with every meal a delectable celebration of flavors.

Along with our extensive and locally-flavoured decadent international menu, guests can also choose from a wide selection of the very best organic gourmet Raw Food cuisine.

Raw foods contain enzymes that aid their own digestion, so they place less strain on the body when eaten. Following a Raw Food diet has many benefits, from weight loss and increased energy to improved immune system and digestion, raised metabolism, and relief from food allergies and eczema.

And don’t think for a second you have to sacrifice taste for the sake of your health. Prepared to perfection, all our raw food meals are mouth wateringly delicious, nutritious and designed to satisfy even a sweet tooth.
Should you have any specific dietary requirements or like anything specially arranged, please speak to us.

If you wish to spend a day lulling by the rock pools and would like us to prepare a picnic basket and refreshments for your journey, please speak to one of our staff.
