Breakfast features three truly gourmet courses served at your requested time---unless it's too early for the cook!

You've just awakened... Indulge in a sensuous soak or a power-jet shower with all of our favorite spa treats before your day of play begins.

Bone China, silver service & your favorite music leave you feeling like the Majestic Beings you are! You've got the day wide open & full of opportunities--what will you engage in after Nectar? Boating or walking up waterfalls, perhaps shopping or even a skinny dip in the creek if you dare!
We are proud to serve Starbucks (Unless we get lucky with an import of Kona coffee from our Hawaiian guests); daily gathered grain fed eggs from the neighbor up the road, and some really yummy treats to tickle your palate.
