Welcome to Alpas, where every detail has been thoughtfully designed to foster your well-being as well as improve the health of our environment. Below is helpful pre-arrival information, as well as the resort guidelines, which we request all guests to keep in mind during their stay for a truly healthy and healing stay for all.
Alpas is for the adventurous and the open-minded. It is for those that want a local, authentic experience; to eat quality food whose origins & thoughtful preparations are honored and explained; to be at ease and informed by our staff; to feel the ocean breeze instead of air-conditioning; and to know that everything they’ve experienced and consumed from the food on their plates to washing their hands has been mindfully designed to have little to no impact on our environment and/or has supported local artisans in some way.
Alpas is built on the foundation that a business must exist for a greater purpose than profit. That means supporting our community, being responsible stewards of the land, being mindful of how our actions impact our environment, making decisions based on enacting these principles, and taking action against those that undermine them.
SINGLE-USE PLASTIC FREE ZONE
We ask our guests to please refrain from bringing any single use plastics (including but not limited to: plastic bags, drink bottles, snacks packed in plastic, takeaway containers/utensils, sachets of any kind). If it is unavoidable, we will ask you to pack them up with you upon checking your room before you leave. We want to keep our environment clean, healthy, and safe. Secondly, there is no proper waste management system in our town and so the plastics you throw away will not be properly disposed of. Please note, we provide water, shampoo, and soap in your rooms, and can feed you plastic free at our restaurant. We do not allow outside food and drinks to be consumed, or cooking done on premises.

Alpas offers a relaxed ambiance set within a lush, tropical paradise. Guests are welcome to dress in resort casual attire while visiting the different facilities. It is also recommended for guests to bring the different clothing items they would need for their preferred activities such as yoga, fitness, swimming, etc.
During the months of April and May, you might want to bring a hat for protection against the bright summer sun. From June to October, please note that is Rainy Season for our region and prepare accordingly. From November to February, we recommend that you bring a light jacket, sweater, or shawl so you can comfortably stroll around the premises even on chilly evenings.
Guests come to Alpas to achieve tranquility and restore balance and peace to the mind, body, and spirit. We request all our members and guests to be considerate of one another by keeping noise to a minimum and switching their devices to silent mode, especially when at the Restaurant, and other public areas.
We also challenge all guests to leave any junk food at the gates and immerse themselves fully in the Alpas culinary experience.
Guests arriving with their own vehicles are advised to park at the designated parking area outside the gate upon arrival, and to keep the engine and stereo system turned off while parked.
