The M11527 is a small family-operated eco resort surrounded by lush tropical vegetation - a perfect hideaway for people who want to get away from it all. It's a hotel where guests feel quickly at home, in comfortable mosquito-free accomodation, receive personal attention & where the individual still counts.
The Ecolodge is more than just a hotel, it's a lifestyle based on the premise that contact with nature is essential to relieve stress, to rejuvenate and to rediscover a sense of self. We offer accommodation in 11 comfortable, charming Saban-style cottages, each with private porch, hammock and bathroom, scattered over abandoned terraced farmland that has been recovered by rainforest. All are individually decorated in nature themes by local artist Heleen Cornet.
Saba is a quaint little island; no casinos, no white sandy beaches, but a well-developed network of nature trails where the hiker can safely enjoy tropical rainforest and walk for hours without encountering anyone. Bird watchers, people interested in butterflies, moths, bats and orchids will not be disappointed. Also, the island is surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean and divers can enjoy spectacular pinnacles, hot springs, rays, sharks, turtles and healthy coral in a fully protected marine park.
All cottages have a porch with hammock, and most have a view of the ocean, a full-size bed downstairs plus two twin beds on the loft. Each cottage has a private bathroom and some are equipped with a kitchenette.
To relax after your hike or dive enjoy or hot and cold tub, sweat lodge, and swimming pool.
