Famously no frills eco-resort
Set in the sleepy town of Chacala (which means “where the shrimp are” in the native tongue) this resort is located in a secret cove only accessible by boat. There is no wifi or television and the little electricity needed is produced from solar panels. There are a number of private houses to choose from each with unique features. Some have a thatched roof, some are open air and all have hammocks for private lounging. The food is five star and the menus are decided on the day by the chef according to the season and the catch. It is a menu in line with the hotel’s eco philosophy. Indeed, the water is recycled, food composted and the local community employed in the building and running of the resort. With the burdens of modern life lifted there is time to take long walks on the beach, view the intricate sea-life with a snorkel and go sea-kayaking. The area is home to over 300 species of birds that provide the soundtrack to your stay in this singular paradise.
