We offer a sacred space in an exceptional beach location, near the small fishing village of Butre, where the river meets the sea and where the tide rolls in, lapping the sun kissed sand. Relatively remote and rustic, you can find our beautiful garden 3 minutes away from the sea – nestled in a rural setting, our remote hideaway sits in and amongst various medicine and fruit trees, where birds have made their nests and sing their song daily. Although rustic, there is a charm about this place. A haven of tranquillity, peacefulness and of quiet repose. This is a remote, off the beaten track paradise to relax and unwind in – to lay in a hammock lazing your time away watching the birds flitting from tree to tree with branches in their beaks making their homes and to which we have made this your home “away” from home.
Inspired from nature, our rustic humble abode is created out of a sense of awareness of space and nature. If you are looking for a true authentic African experience, you will find us on a road less travelled. Away from the commercial well trodden path of bars and concrete hotels, this little piece of remote paradise, will delight your soul and enriching… you will find a warm, friendly, genuine welcoming host who is able to offer you your pick of any of the 4 double rooms which are available in this unique natural garden hideaway. All built by one African man, a man with vision and inspiration, Ellis will greet you with an African smile, a caring hospitality with a sociable and like-able character. Lemongrass tea will be picked from the garden and it is here where you can sip and wonder at the place you have arrived, the place where your mind meets your soul.
Whether you are a single backpacker, a traveller, a person with their own tent, a romantic couple, a volunteer group, a vegetarian or coffee lover, a bird watcher, a surfer, an old India head, a spiritual seeker looking for a sanctuary in Yoga, Tai Chi, Thai Yoga Massage or Meditation, or a teacher wanting to bring groups for spiritual activities for any kind of learning; or you are that musical person wanting to learn African drumming or a person looking to write that book of the next chapter of your life or are simply looking for a quiet retreat on vacation, Green Zion Garden is the answer to your prayer.
