COZY CAMPING

Solo get away?  Backpacking the Caribbean?  Ever mindful of our budget-conscious guests, Great Huts is pleased to include affordable, down-to-basics lodgings that gives everyone a chance to experience the natural splendors of our Paradise on the Edge.  Campers enjoy private permanent structures (aka huts) with shared bathroom facilities that are as convenient and impeccably maintained as all our amenities.  These are some of our most popular rooms!

Tabernacle

With crushed limestone floors, a great cowskin sofa, beguiling artwork, and sleeping accommodations for up to six (two king beds and two singles), this 40-foot-long African tent tucked away in Great Huts’ lush gardens affords you near-total privacy. It shares an outside shower and wash area with the four-person Kayma tent.

Kayma

Not as spacious as the Tabernacle “next door” but no less charming, Kayma can easily accommodate four people in its three double beds.  Crushed limestone floors, agreeable furnishings and an outside shower and wash area (shared with Tabernacle).  Room design may be moderately different than pictured here depending on season.

Kaya

A decidedly unconventional (even for us) nomadic stick hut with an antique brick floor, festooned with richly textured wall hangings that suggest an authentic tribal African atmosphere.  Two double beds can accommodate four in tranquil repose.

Cherry Goat

A pleasingly primitive bamboo hut with double and single beds.  Everything you need and nothing you don't, in the heart of the resort.  You're just a short walk from to our communal bathrooms, and a stone's throw from our animal enclosure and lobby.

Granary

A colorfully embellished reproduction of an African millet-seed silo — perfect for a solo backpacker soaking in the culture for a night...or a week!  You'll love the geometry of the room, and the imagery on the wall will charm and arouse your imagination.

 


Additional Information

Please take special care climbing the steep ladders to the second and third levels of some of our huts.  Contact us directly before booking if you require mobility assistance. 

Guests are advised to bring sneakers and hiking shoes for rocky pathways and floors, waterproof shoes, flashlights and insect repellant. Netting and mosquito coils are provided in all rooms.

Small lizards, frogs and hermit crabs wander freely in and out of guest rooms. Those afraid of these harmless creatures will not be happy at Great Huts, but we appreciate you checking us out!  We are happy to recommend alternative hotels / guest homes.
