Late Afternoon Walk on the Seaside Trail and Through the Trellis Tunnel

 Late afternoons are the best times to enjoy the trails on the western side of the property. The golden reflection of the sun on the Caribbean waters adds another dimension of beauty to the experience.

 Happy New Year! Here at Paya Bay we're starting this new year with some newly completed maintenance projects and a very significant one that we've started working on just recently...

New roof on the restaurant...

New roof on the Beach House...

New wooden deck adjoining the main deck...

New bamboo security rails along the Zen Path...

And the very significant current project: we've started upgrading the baths in our rooms...

Late Afternoon Swim with Thelma

After we ran on the beach for some exercise, Thelma and I took a cool off swim on the western corner of the Big Beach. This is a gorgeous spot on the property when the weather is just right.

In Memoriam

It's with heartfelt sadness that we communicate that Louise (a.k.a. "Lou-Lou,"  "440") passed yesterday. She was the inseparable adventure partner of her sister, Thelma, who survives her. Lou-Lou lived a wonderful life here at Paya the nine years she was with us. She  brought her own special energy to the mix and will be greatly missed by her humans.

Louise (a.k.a. Lou-Lou). In the pictures below the dog with he lighter coat is sister Thelma.

Black iguanas on the rocks

 Protected as they are on the property, Paya Bay Resort is home to a thriving population of black iguanas. They can often be spotted sunning on the rocky shorelines between the beaches.

Mahoe Variegated Sea Hibicus


The Mahoe Variegated Sea Hibiscus puts out a beautiful yellow blossom. Once fully mature, the yellow flowers helicopter to the ground and pretty consistently land face up. The flowers then start a beautiful metamorphosis from yellow to a crimson read, carpeting under their tree with their beautiful designs. It's one of few flowers that, arguably, become prettier AFTER they fall from the tree.
