Castara Retreats - Trinidad & Tobago
From the tiny hummingbirds hovering amongst the trees to the fireflies that light up the night sky, this wonderful family-run eco retreat is all about getting back to nature. Designed and built by British owners, an extraordinary amount of care and attention has been taken to create a truly unique hideaway. The accommodation is beautifully crafted, the sea views are stunning and the warm hospitality has guests coming back year after year.
Around an hour’s drive from the airport.
Set on a hillside above the fishing village of Castara, on the west coast of Tobago.
The resort’s 17 apartments and lodges are all unique and stylishly decorated with bags of local character. Each has been positioned to make the most of the spectacular ocean views and cooling sea breezes, and features one or two bedrooms, a full kitchen, complimentary WiFi, an in-room safe and private deck or shared terrace with double hammock. All are equipped with fans and air conditioning. As each accommodation is different, we recommend that you speak to us about which best suits your needs.
Restaurants And Bars
Open for lunch and dinner only, the Caribbean Kitchen enjoys a gorgeous setting overlooking the beach, and serves up an innovative menu blending local flavours with more eclectic influences from around the globe. The views at sunset are particularly breathtaking, and the adjoining Pagoda Bar has a cocktail menu that is well worth dipping into. Guests generally cater for themselves for breakfast, or there is a popular local café a few minutes’ walk away in the village which serves a hearty Caribbean breakfast.
Nature is a huge part of Castara’s appeal and the hotel is set in two acres of tropical gardens which offer excellent opportunities for bird and wildlife watching. The beach is just a few minutes’ walk away down a winding footpath and is a great spot for swimming, sunbathing or just getting to know the friendly locals. Castara Bay has a wonderful reef, teeming with life and colour, and the snorkelling here is particularly enjoyable. Yoga classes and massage treatments are available on request, and for those wanting to get out and about to explore the island, a wide variety of activities can be arranged, such as rainforest walks, birdwatching, island tours and boat trips.
The accommodation at Castara is located on a hillside and is not recommended for guests with walking difficulties. There is a small fee, payable locally, for the rental of sun loungers on the beach. There is a cash machine in Castara and credit cards are accepted at the hotel, but guests are advised to travel with sufficient cash for the duration of their stay.Holiday Name : Castara Retreats
