About Arajilla Retreat

The Meaning of Arajilla

Arajilla is derived from an aboriginal word roughly translated as “a mystical place to rest”.

Where lush mountain pastures meet Old Settlement Beach
Where Kentias and ancient Banyans bathe in soft filtered light
Where the suites are spacious and stocked with pleasures
Where the food and wine is pure magic
Where you can be as energetic or as enigmatic as you wish
Where the picnic feasts are legend
Where the air is fresh and salty and good
You’ll find Arajilla
