Our third, but not final visit to Castara Retreats, was as relaxing and tranquil as ever. We are very glad that this little gem is on our doorstep from Trinidad. Porridge, Kenny and the team again made us feel more like friends than paying guests (we did still have to pay). You get the feeling that nothing is too much for this great bunch at this great place to stay and unwind. Already booked to head back to our hideout on the hillside later in the year. If you're after peace and quiet with a background of the sea crashing or lapping on the beach whilst you hang out in your hammock reading your book and sipping an ice cold pina colada or if you fancy dropping down to the beach for a snorkel and then heading back up to the restaurant for lunch or dinner then book it now. Lazy days indeed. No hesitations.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Castara Retreats is a small Tobago eco resort superbly located overlooking the Bay of Castara, with stunning views of the Caribbean and mountains. For those seeking holidays in Tobago the seven tropical hardwood accommodations are built to the highest standards and are set right above Castara beach in lush tropical gardens. Backed by the deep green of the oldest protected rainforest in the Western Hemisphere and framed by mango trees and bamboo, Castara Retreats offers Caribbean vacations in a lush tropical paradise where guests can relax and live in the landscape around them. The lodge accommodation offers 15 separately available areas, each with wonderful privacy and exclusive terraces, which can be rented individually by couples, or together for larger groups and families. The accommodation is specially designed to create open, spacious living areas that allow uninterrupted views of the beach and rainforest, cool sea breezes and the natural sights and sounds of the ocean, rainforest and village. Each lodge or apartment is constructed of red cedar, a local hardwood, and is from sustainable sources. The bedrooms, each with en suite showers and either queen size or twin beds all have full size mosquito nets on suspended wooden frames. The spacious living areas have panoramic views of the two beaches looking north-west and also to the coastline looking south-west, and stunning sunsets over the Caribbean. Each accommodation has the advantage of free Wi-Fi internet access. There is comfortable and stylish seating with both indoor and outdoor dining and all three areas are equipped to a very high standard for self-catering. We have recently completed open-decked Pavilion Bar and Restaurant - already receiving excellent ratings - perfect for a romantic dinner for two or for family groups and events. ... more less
