Quiet, choice, and secluded, Hermitage Bay is that rare property that truly deserves the designation "boutique." It's tailor-made for honeymooners and an ideal retreat for those looking for a little peaceful R&R. Of the 25 spacious suites, eight are beachside and 17 are up on the hillside; all are sea-facing. Each has a sturdy, natural elegance, crafted of sustainably grown, dark-stained Guyanese hardwoods beautifully offset by eggshell-white walls and linens. You can plug out or plug in; with in-room conveniences like iPods, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, and air-conditioning, you can have the best of both worlds. Half of the suites come with private plunge pools; all have spacious bathrooms and private terraces. This all-inclusive has a wellness bent, offering regular meditation and yoga classes as well as a menu of delicious Euro-Caribbean dishes that use fresh produce and herbs from the resort's own organic kitchen garden. The resort's healing spa treatments (extra cost) include couples' massages in your suite.
