    We’ve won an eco award!

    Proud winners of Luxlife Award

    Best Eco beach lodge getaway 2023 - Trinidad and Tobago

    We’re delighted to have won our first eco-related award as part of the LuxLife magazine’s 8th annual awards programme.

    Having worked hard for over two decades to build Castara Retreats into a sustainable business that enhances the local environment and community in Tobago as much as possible, we’re chuffed to receive this recognition.


    From sponsoring local institute ERIC (Environmental Research Institute Charlottesville) to regenerate the coral reef in Castara Bay, to supporting local community members to develop and promote their own independent tourism-related businesses, we strive to enhance the flora and fauna within the beautiful fishing village of Castara.

    As of November 2022, we’re excited to be working with Green Key International – an organisation helping tourism enterprises improve their environmental responsibility and sustainability standards. We wholly welcome our partnership with this prestigious and rigorous eco-label and are passionate about our commitment to long-term changes – from educating ourselves on how to live and work with a more sustainable mindset, to practical changes such as introducing solar panels to our properties. Our initial assessment shows we’re already strong in several areas, such as community engagement and composting, and there is exciting progress to make.

    Thanks again to Luxlife for the recognition!
