Went there for a massage. It's really a small paradise hidden in the tropical forest. It looks simple yet magical. Reminds me of some Miyazaki cartoons. The massage was delicious and I felt relaxed. Used the water ponds. High level service.

We went here for dinner as staying locally. We went up and booked the day before. We were told we could come a little early which we did but nothing seemed to be open.

A spa visit and dinner at Tendacayou provided a fittingly indulgent finale to a girls' getaway to Guadeloupe. Overall, we had a wonderful time, but the service left something to be desired. Tucked away in the hills above Deshaies, the eclectic retreat is boho-beautiful, with sweeping views over the Caribbean. Our treatments (I got the Oriental Ritual; my friend got...
