Description of Tobago wellness vacation
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetOur open-sided Wellness Studio and all 17 eco lodges are built using locally-supplied wood and built and fitted by local craftspeople from the local village. With green roofs and wooden frames, they are architecturally designed to merge harmoniously with the backdrop of rainforest, ocean and village.
We have spent 15 years creating a sanctuary for wildlife within our tropical gardens. The endangered agouti is now a common sight, along with iguana, and a nesting armadillo that was first spotted in 2016. Over 70 species of birds can be viewed from our accommodations. While stretching in the yoga studio you will be visited by an array of wildlife, making the experience that much more calming and special.
Where possible we strive to grow our own produce in our kitchen garden. We have undertaken extensive tree and shrub planting to maximise soil retention and avoid the risk of soil erosion and landslides. Paths with drainage systems have been constructed to ensure the safe run off of water from our land to the road below.
PeopleWe are proud to work successfully as an intimate, family run eco-resort which is managed by empowered locals who have a stake in the business. A number of our staff have established satellite services under our name, such as airport transfers, laundry, bread making and boat trips. We take no commission for these services.
We have grown our Wellness Team, investing in our existing, local staff. Our latest yoga teacher qualified on one of the yoga retreats hosted by us and delivered by a world-class yoga teacher. We are also training our Wellness Team to qualify as snorkelling guides through the expert local Environmental Research Institute Charlottesville to increase our offering to guests but importantly to be part of the safe exploration and preservation of our coral reefs.
We encourage our guests to use the services in the village including local places to eat. Our restaurant deliberately offers a different level of service and style of cooking (more Caribbean fusion than local) and our prices are higher which avoids a feeling of competition with the village.
