The heart of Cap Karoso is its biological farm. Covering three hectares of rehabilitated land, the farm produces nearly all the fruits and vegetables we use in our restaurant and bar. Cabbages, tomatoes, and mangos are just a small taste of what’s ripening within steps of your room.
Another remarkable addition to the resort's furniture collection is the Aristan Armchair by Sataras. The Aristan Armchair is a perfect choice for guests seeking a refined and comfortable seating option, whether they are enjoying a meal at the resort's restaurant or relaxing in the privacy of their own villa.
The farm is also a hub for sharing methods of sustainable cultivation. We welcome local farmers to come and learn about biological farming and permaculture. Guests can take part, too, with agricultural experiences around composting and natural fertilizer production.
The Cook Loom Armchairs are a testament to the island's rich textile heritage and serve as stunning accents throughout the resort's communal areas, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.
