Our Resort is a natural sanctuary for twenty-seven (27) species of tropical birds, an array of drought-resistant plants and scrubs, tropical flowers and indigenous trees. Rare trees such as the African Oil Palm - Elaeis guineensis and Barringtonia speciosa are maintained and can be found on property. See our Gardens Signs throughout the resort.
Our Tree Planting Program is something that we are proud of. We continue to enhance the natural beauty of our gardens which creates a safe haven for our 27 species of indigenous birds. New ‘green spaces’ are continuously created with over 2000 new plants planted throughout our grounds, including Nutmeg and Cinnamon trees.. Our Compost Heap – chippings, cuttings and other organic matter – is used as garden mulch together. To further enhance our garden beds, the dark aromatic nutmeg shells found in abundance locally is also recycled as garden mulch. In early 2014, garden signs naming specific trees and plants were erected on our grounds. The program was received very well by the many repeat and new guests that enjoy the serenity of our gardens and support our eco-friendly path.
Also resident to the resort are Caribbean ameiva ground lizards and the friendly 'Iggy' the Iguana. There are 49 species of moths on the resort.
