The resort is our vision of organic design, simplicity and a certain lifestyle. It’s all about nature, plenty of private space, taste and comfort.

The result is only 12 luxury villas with pools, fine dining restaurants, a decent wine cellar and three (3) good things to enjoy things to enjoy during your stay: horseback riding, quality diving and a Spa village in the park.

At Tarsier Botanika, nature is the landlord, we do not disturb, we are only the humble tenant.
