In one of the most breathtaking locations in the Caribbean's West Indies, The M12309 and its nature trail provide an idyllic, natural setting for vacation, romance, spiritual contemplation — or even special occasions, such as yoga retreats, eco groups, family reunions and gatherings, weddings, renewal vows, or honeymoons (of course). Whether you're a couple, group, or family, find out how we can tailor your experience to your needs.
Nestled along the calm waters of Tobago's leeward coast, M12309 features:
- A one-of-a-kind secluded nature trail designed by Rick Hayton, co-founder of Environment Tobago. The trail winds between two majestic sets of waterfalls.
- Two comfortable suites with exquisite panoramic views and private terraces.
- A 50' x 40' deck overlooking the Caribbean and the picturesque fishing village of Castara that is ideal for bird watching, meditation and view sunsets and sunrises.
- Great access to some of Tobago's best rainforest nature trails, snorkeling & swimming beaches—4 minutes to Castara Bay & 8 minutes to Englishman's Bay.
Experience all that friendly Tobago, known as the "Emerald Isle" of the West Indies, has to offer, from the festive outdoor concerts of "Sunday School" to world-class scuba-diving and snorkeling to a heaping plate of local delicacies like roti, "pigeon peas" or callalloo soup. Through its robust culture, pristine natural beauty, and relaxed vibe, Tobago has a way of insinuating itself into the imagination, so that many find themselves returning often and regarding it as a second home. It happened to us.
For those travelers who, like most who visit Tobago, are in search of something a little off the beaten path and who cringe at the thought of crowded Club Med-type vacations with little or no interaction with the local people and their culture, M12309 offers an unpretentious and rewarding experience. In Castara and the surrounding villages, you will have the opportunity to meet many interesting villagers and you can even help pull in the communal fishing net. On the beach, set aside your rum punch just long enough to take a beginner's lesson on the steel pans from Ken at Castara’s local restaurants or join in an impromptu game of soccer with local youths.
