Responsible tourism: Weddings in Tobago

We are passionately committed to adding value back into this community that has given ourselves and our clients so much. This commitment to work with people in the village has helped to create a warm atmosphere towards visitors.

Our guests take advantage of lots of the services available in the village and this has a very positive impact on the local economy. Shops and restaurants benefit daily, as do the people offering rainforest walks and boat trips.

In addition, we provide quality employment for a number of local people. The lodge is managed by a local couple who ensure that everything is ready for guests when they arrive, and who organise the accommodation, meals and transport. Five other local people work in our team looking after the gardens and the accommodation.

The construction was undertaken by local people and over three years some 30-40 people were involved who benefited from a good deal of skill development. The design of our accommodations, with their stylish timber structures that sit gently into the landscape, has generated lots of positive comment and a recognition that development does not need to damage the environment.

Guests and staff are encouraged to care for environment and our website and visitors' books are filled with ideas on how to protect this unspoiled landscape.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Getting married at the retreat, Tobago

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Maybe the 'steep' climb from the beach to the accommodation might be a problem for some people. But as for everything in Tobago, for every problem Tobagonians will find a solution. Prepare for mosquitoes during day and night time.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Yes. The accommodation is build by local people, staff is local and locally owned restaurants and shops do benefit as well.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


We spend a great two weeks at the retreat. Porridge (the manager) and his staff make anything possible and are very nice to be with. A very friendly atmosphere at the accommodation as well as in the village. Beautiful garden around the accommodation and a great beach below.
