ABOUT THE PROPERTY
4 Elements Culinary and Wellness center is located in a virgin valley at the end of a private road on the smallest and newest of the US Virgin Islands. The property boasts breathtaking views of Water Island and nearby islands. In this rustic retreat, you'll enjoy the tranquility of sustainable living in the midst of our organic gardens watered using collected rainwater. Our cottages offer the perfect "glamping" experience in nature, while not compromising guest comfort. Each cottage is privately nestled within lush tropical foliage. Floating above the coast, the property has views of the island and the ocean beyond with limitless lookouts for sunrise, sunset, moonrise and star-gazing. Let our open-air spaces open up your senses to a new way of life. We will inspire you with our simple charm and rustic beauty. Get lost in the walkways of our over 1 acre and a half property and find little secret hideouts amongst nature to find yourself or find each other. We thoroughly believe in leaving a small environmental footprint and living sustainably. Therefore you will find that many features at our property are made from recycled materials such as bottles, driftwood and thrifted furniture.
