The five bee hives at the Resort are always buzzing. They have prospered with the assistance of our local partner Bee Harmony who continues to watch over their honey-making endeavors. Guests can enjoy some of this special nectar in select dishes, cocktails, and spa treatments.
We hope to be adding guest beekeeping experiences in the coming future.
