The Island of Saba
What’s a Caribbean Island doing without a beach anyway?
Visitors who fall in love with this tropical paradise in the Caribbean don’t seem to mind the lack of sand. Or for that matter, the lack of casinos, shopping malls and discos.
Perhaps it’s the 4 charming villages, the tropical rainforest, the friendly people and the unique underwater world that makes Saba so special.
Or more likely, it’s simply the way time seems to slow down here….
Saba is truly a natural wonder.
The Saba Haiku House is a private hilltop villa based on a 16th-century Japanese Villa. This is the ideal luxurious mountain hideaway, offering all the amenities and a private pool.
