On site dining is available and the hotel staff can arrange your daily activities, or you can feel free to set out on your own.
A remote cluster of eight rustic cottages located on the mountainside of Mourne Anglais, Exotica is definitely a vacation retreat. You'll need a four-wheel-drive vehicle to navigate the steep slopes approaching the retreat, but once there the views are extraordinary. Each cottage is equipped with a full kitchen for in-home meal preparation, or sample the local fare at the Sugar Apple Café, featuring all-organic produce from the adjoining organic farm. Activities can be arranged through the management as well.
Located on the south coast near Stowe, the Zandoli Inn offers five rooms with breathtaking views. Each with expansive French doors which open to amazing vistas, this retreat really gives people peace and quiet with no phones or TVs to be found. Meals are prepared buffet-style with locally-grown produce and fresh-caught seafood. The Inn is within walking distance to a nearby village and other activities can be arranged by the friendly staff.
