More than a thousand different animals: cows, pigs, goats and poultry provide the food used on the island – all prepared from scratch in-house.

Surrounding the huts, two hundred and forty acres of farmland grow crops such as coffee, cocoa, vanilla, pepper, teas and tropical fruits and vegetables.

All the soaps and lotions used in the spa are also made on the island, from herbs grown in the spa garden and animal products such as pig fat and beeswax.

Prices for this luxurious setting start at $3,800 a night.
