Guests of Palmento Grove can wander the footpaths on this isolated strip of island or head out with local fishermen to try your luck at catching some of the many abundant species of fish and seafood that thrive in the area. Guests can use fresh-caught fish mixed with fresh vegetables from the gardens to learn how to cook mouthwatering traditional dishes like hudut, a Garifuna fish stew made with coconuts and plantains, all accompanied by the sounds of traditional Garifuna drumming.

Designed to promote holistic healing and rejuvenation, Palmento Grove is a true sanctuary where guests are surrounded on all sides by fresh air and delightful scenery. Rooms at Palmento Grove are cozy and comfortable, furnished in the traditional Garifuna style, and with magnificent views looking out at the pristine garden & water view.
