Palmaïa: The House of AïA

A secluded sanctuary with oceanfront swim up suites, jungle spa, gourmet restaurants overseen by chefs who have trained in Michelin starred restaurants from around the globe. Featuring locally sourced plant-based cuisine, secluded white sand beach, private terraces, infinity pools, and in-suite dining sets The House of AïA apart from other luxury wellness retreats.
