Experience barefoot luxury in a pristine paradise with a team of 25 Calala-lalas (also known in some parts of the world as "staff") for a maximum of 8 guests. They ensure your every desire is met, seamlessly.

Each of the four bungalow suites were designed by leading architect Matthew Falkiner, and carefully created with you in mind. Located directly along the beach and with the finest handcrafted Nicaraguan furnishings, each suite perfectly marries you with your tropical surroundings. With only four suites on the entire 9.5 acre island, complete privacy comes as standard, as does waking up to the birds tweeting at sunrise and to the sunset that must be seen to be believed.

The Caribbean and fine dining is rarely a match to be seen, but at Calala Island they take their food seriously. Executive Chef, Tom Morrell, comes with a wealth of experience having worked for some of the top Michelin starred restaurants in the UK and Europe, he is constantly showcasing his "elaboration of simplicity" and pushing the boundaries of what the wonderfully fresh local produce has to offer. It is worth traveling here just for the food!
