Sustainable living at The Seed
The Seed’s 2.5-acre estate was designed, built and planted by a family; a labour of love to create a unique space to pursue a conscious, sustainable lifestyle – living, learning and working in nature.
From our personal spring-water source to our edible and medicinal gardens, our waste water systems to our compost-working chickens, every part of The Seed has been built with sustainability in mind. From our rooftop yoga shala to our traditional Temazcal sauna, each element gives guests access to an enhanced, healthier way of life.
Across a pioneering four-bedroom main villa and two charming cottages, The Seed’s unique, energy-efficient properties unite luxury with sustainability; contemporary architecture with traditional craftsmanship; local materials with world-leading sustainable systems; and indoor and outdoor living.
Championing bamboo, palo santo and albaricoque, they are operated with solar hot water and sustainable grey water and compost systems. With spectacular design details from statement staircases to custom-made baths and verdant terraces, each celebrates its unique location: designed around breath-taking lake views, night-time stargazing spots or tranquil hillside hideaways. The result is three remarkable, distinctly different properties.

Gardens and food
From avocado to aloe vera, bananas to berries, zapote to spinach, The Seed is blessed with acres of tropical plants, fruits, herbs and vegetables – both wild-grown and cultivated across permaculture gardens and greenhouses, fed by our mountaintop spring-water well, compost system and chickens.
Here you will find a massage cabin hidden amongst the raspberries; a chemical-free natural plunge pool; our Mayan temazcal sauna and sound dome; and a handmade children’s playground.
These lovingly cultivated gardens offer sanctuary, privacy, medicine and organic garden-to-table dining – healthy, hearty local fare exquisitely prepared by our personally-trained local chefs, adept at making everything from pizza, pasta and bread to hummus, preserves and ginger beer from scratch. All guests and groups can arrange bespoke menus with us.
