Nestled on the hillside with rainforest as a backdrop, and the ocean below, this wonderful eco resort on the edge of the Caribbean village of Castara invites you to enjoy a ‘living in the landscape’ experience in one of the 16 treehouse-style, self-catering accommodations. Each is built in perfect synthesis with the lush surrounding environment, and angled to absorb the glorious views of the Caribbean Sea. We invite you to experience the tropical paradise in this unspoilt corner of the Caribbean that captivates those lucky enough to visit.

At Castara the aim is to create a balance between the services of a hotel with the freedom of self-catering. If you are looking for five star luxury in an exclusive Tobago hotel, it's unlikely to be for you. But if it is a more subtle sort of luxury you seek, this tropical hideaway capture the simple, exotic essence of Tobago and exude creativity and style. You will find all you need to unwind and recharge. Comfort is paramount with open-air bedrooms, hammocks for lounging, and expansive decks; Castara strives to deliver a level of quality that sets them apart.

The local team – led by charismatic Porridge and his wife Jeanell –will do all they can to ensure your stay is a happy one. They have created an intimate, friendly atmosphere around the place, and will call by your accommodation most mornings to say hello and check all is well. Their openness of spirit helps guests connect with the relaxed Tobago ‘go slow’ attitude that has beguiled so many. Strolling down to the village, you’ll find a friendly local vibe and an invitation to experience the relaxed rhythms of Caribbean village life.
