Yes you can eat chocolate and be healthy!
What is the first thing you think about when you hear the word 'Cacao'? Chocolate, perhaps?
For most people, the word is associated with a guilty pleasure, a "treat", or something that causes overindulgence and possibly even feelings of guilt. What is often overlooked, is that cacao has been used around the world for centuries for its healing properties, and these days it is fast becoming a growing popular topic in global health and wellness conversations, as well as in medicinal research.
It's time to start changing our perception of this incredible tropical bean. What we used to think of as merely a treat, now comes to light for its healing properties and as a safe and controlled form of mood enhancement. In fact, Cacao is widely considered to be the number one longevity food in the world - something we would like to prove to you in this first of its kind wellness retreat.
Join us this October to learn more about the healing, practical and immersive properties of this ancient superfood. Guilt is guaranteed to be transformed into absolute pleasure. We look forward to seeing you there!

Reflections from past guests
I can't believe the transformation in my personal space over, not even, twenty four hours. Obviously the food was a highlight, the energy of the Villa is so grounding, beautiful and uplifting with the ocean right there.
The star of the show, however, and what
makes 26 Sunset Villa so unique, is not
the sheer magnitude of its offerings and
magnificent façade – it’s the service. And
this is where the term “unhurried living”
becomes a reality. Prepare yourself to be
blown away by a discreet team – including a
private chef, butler, and villa manager – who
epitomise true South African warmth and
