Castara Retreats overlooks a quiet bay by a fishing village on the northern coast. 17 self-catering lodges are built at treetop level and surrounded by vegetation where chickens and agouti roam. The sea views and sense of elevation make for a relaxing stay whilst you celebrate your anniversary.
One of two Green Key-certified - is a small and friendly 20-room hotel with teakwood Caribbean Style decor set amidst an oasis of lush tropical gardens with a relaxed ambience that keeps guests coming back for more.

Blue Waters Inn
On the north-eastern tip overlooking Batteaux Bay, Blue Waters Inn is a 46-acre haven set near the rainforest. With 38 elegant rooms and villas, the emphasis here is on relaxing days, chilled-out evenings and the peaceful surroundings of Speyside and Batteaux Bay, with views of Goat Island and Little Tobago. This end of the island is home to Tobago’s famous brain corals.

These unique villas combine the two sides of Tobago: the ocean and the forest. Perfect for smaller celebrations, you can host your vow renewal ceremony or just enjoy an anniversary holiday with the ones you love – plus who can say no to an infinity pool!
Where to celebrate?
Seahorse Inn, one of Tobago’s finest dining establishment, a romantic spot with candlelit tables where creative dishes include pork chops glazed with molasses and rum. Ideal for couples looking for an intimate date night to celebrate their anniversary whilst in Tobago.
Waves Restaurant & Bar
The only waterfront fine dining restaurant along the Great Courland Bay and Stone Haven bays. Waves Restaurant & Bar offers a refreshed menu with an emphasis on ‘the catch of the day’ dishes, local and international cuisine. Couples can indulge in a panoramic sunset for a romantic evening on the water or dust off the sand after a relaxing dip for a laid-back lunch.
Imagine dining in a cozy green oasis of a hotel with an absolutely fantastic restaurant, known for its creative use of herbs straight from the garden. This is why diners love Kariwak! Everything is homemade and freshly prepared on-site, from the legendary Kariwak rum punch with fresh lime and passion fruit, to rosemary focaccia. It’s a foodie heaven for couples who are looking for that extra-special restaurant for their celebration.
Jemma’s Seaview Kitchen
Big portions can also be expected at this Tobago favourite in Speyside, as can the incredible views. Overlooking the Atlantic coast and the vistas of Goat Island and Little Tobago, diners feast on groaning platters of fried, grilled or curried fish and creole shrimp served with salads, rice, beans and fried plantain. Don’t miss Jemma’s signature breadfruit pie.
The Caribbean Kitchen
Watch the fishermen haul in their seine nets on the beach before heading to The Caribbean Kitchen to feast on what they’ve caught. The restaurant, part of the eco-resort Castara Retreats, has the best views in town. Perched up in the trees, diners gaze down at the bay from the restaurant’s wooden terrace while tucking into the freshly grilled catch of the day, curried lamb or blackened jerk chicken, and sipping rum cocktails. Time your visit with sunset for even more magical views.
