Tendacayou Ecolodge & Spa Review

This complex is the result of a remarkable 10-year saga, as an expat French family learned to live off a parcel of rain forest, building tree houses for their large brood, then building additional ones for paying guests, as well as a seafood restaurant, Le Poisson Rouge. The publicity and the ensuring business gathered in this move from a Swiss Family Robinson existence to the front cover of the popular L'Express newsweekly allowed Sylvie and George Carreyre to then build a wellness spa. Like everything else they built, it has its own personality, with professional therapists, moderate prices, and a magical zen environment. The newer accommodations are more upscale, romantic, wildly colorful. bungalows with gingerbread fretwork.
