Imagine. After a beautiful journey over the ocean, you find yourself on a quaint island full of lush, tall green trees. You roll up onto Hollyhock’s campus and are greeted by friendly and welcoming faces. When you walk into the garden you are dazzled by the colours, smells, and sounds of the birds. During your stay you explore the sunny beach, rest in hot tubs overlooking the ocean, discover winding paths through the forest, enjoy fireside chats with fresh organic tea, and discover the magic of night time bioluminescence with an expansive star filled sky above. From nourishing meals, to cozy handcrafted accommodations, to complimentary activities like yoga and rowing, it’s everything you imagined and more.
A feast for the senses! Globally-inspired meals from our renowned Hollyhock kitchen are prepared with love and skill. Our healthy, organic, vegetarian fare features ingredients from our abundant French-Intensive garden located just outside our kitchen door, ensuring your plate is nourished with care every step of the way. Served “family style” our vegetarian cuisine is complimented with weekly seafood dinners and beach-side oyster appetizer BBQs.
