"Kicked out on Christmas after booking in August "

The staff and yoga instructors are wonderful and the location is gorgeous, though off the beaten path.

"Serene getaway"

I liked having my own cabin, enjoyed the lush off grid environment. The way staff made me feel at home, the delicious healthy meals and the yoga every morning was a great way to start my Day. I loved the “outdoor” showers. It’s location made out a great home base to see attractions on that side of the island.

My preschooler and I had a wonderful stay at KMEC! I am not sure which part we loved the most: exploring the exotic fruit trees on the property, spending time with new friends in the community kitchen, the unique bathrooms that overlook the "jungle", or our cozy cabin that was clean and comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful and always available to assist. We just loved it and would be extremely grateful if we ever have the opportunity to return!
