Castara Retreats more than lived up to our expectations - this is a not 5* luxury resort - it is however, chic eco accommodation where you get a real Caribbean experience. The apartments blend into the hillside and ours ‘rainforest’ at the level of the...More

Castara Retreats is run in such a way that they know what they are about and strive for excellence rather that trying to be like the other resorts on the island. Service is excellent and accommodations are just enough to be comfortable but not overpowering...More

I stayed at Castara Retreats for an all too short but oh so sweet 3 nights as part of a long stopover in Trinidad and Tobago. The room (‘Firefly’) was introduced to me as a ‘home away from home’, and certainly lived up to that...More

About
Description
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 More 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. Less

Better to buy all your necessities before you head up to Castara. Near the airport has a grocery called PennySavers. You can get all your supplies there.

Email Porridge and he will tell you the cost. I know it is more expensive than renting at the airport.

I'm sure they do - but you may have to pay for the apartment/room full price? This is a super friendly retreat, as is the village, so if you want people to chat to, I don't think Castara or Castara Retreats will disappoint... More
