Cast Away is a self-sustainable “back to basics” eco village categorized as “Robinson accommodation,” offering 10 spaclous wooden tents in the middle of nature a stone's throw away from 2 beautiful beaches. Each tent comes with exquisite sea views, the ideal place to relax and recharge, a world away from the touristic hustle. Enjoy a million stars in one of the many hammocks or lounges and let the gentle sound of the waves lull you to sleep. The place is truly a hidden gem! Surrounded by nature & extraordinary sea views, we are blessed to be able to call this place home! Indulge yourself with tranquility in our little piece of paradise! Explore the Pittoresk village nearby and meet its authentic inhabitants. Experience the real Croatia, unwind & reconnect with nature!
I jumped from a plane in New Zealand, swam with giant sea turtles in Galapagos, nomadized with Bedouin tribes in the Wadi Rum desert… This is my life! After working for the Belgian television and living in our Western society for 15 long years, I felt the need to break out and go back to the essence of being, back... to the essence of life! So in 2013, I took a gap year and jumped into an amazing adventure around the world. That was the most amazing year of my life and changed my life forever! I got lost in a jungle, wandered for hours in deserts by myself, met all kinds of amazing people from all around the world and realized how beautiful people can be. When I came home, I felt that I just couldn’t fit in society anymore, so I wondered… Could there be anything more perfect than to host travellers and share my passion for adventure in one of the most beautiful and secluded places on this planet? So I quit my job and sold my house to finish our family’s lifelong dream and share this beautiful seaside paradise with likeminded travellers to reconnect with nature, enjoy simple things in life and rediscover the beauty of true human contact & new friendships
