The Hillside Cottage Suites may be a short trek up the hill, but it's worth the climb as the higher you go, the more stunning the bay view – and there’s always a golf buggy to ferry you around if you’re not feeling up to the ascent. These Asian-inspired wooden cottages have private infinity plunge pools beside white-curtained day-bed terraces – ideal for lounging in front of the inimitable Caribbean sunset. Down by the seafront, the Beach Cottage Suites may lack pools, but the fact the sea is but a hop, skip and dive away more than makes up for it.
The hotel’s main freshwater pool is an invitingly curved, infinity-edged, broad-bean-shaped delight, overlooking the sea and set beside the lounge bar. Waiters are always on hand to bring refreshment your way.
Insect repellent is a must, given the critters that come out at night; any classics you’ve never got around to reading – this is the perfect place to do it.
Smoking is not allowed in the restaurant or Suites (but you can go out onto the veranda).
The hotel welcomes children aged 12 and up for $200 a night in low season and $300 a night in high season. In July and August, you can bring kids from eight years old.
