If your idea of perfection is thatched-roof cabanas and a quiet, private beach, then this is your oceanfront eco-lodge. The 10 artfully constructed cabanas here are made from indigenous materials such as bamboo and island stone. All bathrooms have showers with round sea stones that feel wonderful underfoot and rain-shower heads. The property was designed to blend into the environment without disturbing its beauty. Lole, the dueña (owner), and her caring, bilingual staff promote camaraderie. Healthful breakfasts and lunches are served in one of the two waterfront restaurants, dinner in the other prepared by an international chef. The artistically designed Attabeyra Spa has services such as chocolate wraps and massages on the beach. The splendid yoga pavilion is an oceanfront palacio with classes in the morning and afternoon; retreats and innovative weddings with the Natura touch are held here, too. The pool gazebo, with its colorful Indian sarongs, is the setting for romantic dinners.
