We all know that people from Saskatoon enjoy visiting the tropics — especially during winter! Most go south to places like Mexico and the Caribbean for a week or two to escape the harsh Saskatchewan temperatures, then return home with dark tans, great memories and dreams of visiting again.

Talk to any of these people and, chances are, they’ll be more than willing to share stories about their favourite vacation restaurants or watering holes. About befriending locals, trying the indigenous cuisine, swaying to the musica tropale under the palms and palapas.

Talk to these people long enough and eventually you’ll see their face light up and it’s as though they’ve escaped their regular workaday lives and returned to their place in the sun.

It was this look on people’s faces, the longing to be back in a tropical paradise, that gave our owner Johnny K an idea.

“What if we could grant them their wish — on a daily basis?”

For  more than a decade, that’s exactly what we’ve been doing. Providing people with a year-round vacation hideaway right here in the heart of Saskatoon! A hideaway whose main goal is to serve good food and leave you with a smile on your face.
