Design, Balance, Taste
A natural and sophisticated kind of harmony.
“It is through inner exploration, questioning preconceptions, challenging established paradigms, and being brave enough to walk alone that we have the ability to change the world.”
—Alexander Ferri, Creator of The House of AïA
Palmaïa was built with a vision. A vision founded in the confidence that there is a better way to do things, for ourselves, for the children, for the planet.
By using a plant-based-first approach, we take care of our planet as much as we do our health. But we also create dishes so delicious that you’ll never want to leave.
Zero Plastic Bottles
That’s right. Sometimes to go forward, we need to take a step back. At Palmaïa we have protected our connection to nature by eliminating plastic bottles from the property. Instead, a personal, limited edition vessel waits for you on arrival, to refill and hydrate to your heart’s content.
Natural Living by Design
Instead of finding balance with nature, builders often level the landscape and then selectively replant, even importing non-native fauna. Here, great care has been taken to safeguard the property’s natural landscape during construction. As an example, we maintained our dense mangroves and continue to protect our namesake, the palma chît, from extinction.
Carbon Energy Neutral
We strive to become one of the first carbon energy neutral resorts in the world, by leasing our energy from solar panels and other renewable sources. It doesn’t hurt that we use 50% less energy than the average resort. But don’t worry, during hot days air-conditioning keeps us refreshed, cool, and happy.
The Gifting Lifestyle
