African Royal

Africana House, a Rastafari Mansion by the Sea with high ceilings and Ethiope-inspired decor throughout, has a spacious communal room, four regal bedrooms, a 5,000-square-foot rooftop deck and a lotus-shaped deepwater pool, resting atop five acres braided with intriguing caves and hiking trails.  Perfect for an intimate yet communal getaway or a secluded corporate retreat.  The pool, bar, master kitchen, a cascading staircase into the nearby ravine and (of course) panoramic views of the northeast coast are available to all guests.

Four new luxury villas formally opening in Spring 2017.  See pictures below showcasing our new luxury additions..
