Joined at the hip to the legendary beach bar the Soggy Dollar, this barefoot retreat is for escapists who want total privacy. The six cottages are wrapped in lush tropical foliage and bougainvillea, with sweeping views of White Bay Beach. The roomy, breezy rooms are hung with local art and have king-size beds, rattan furniture, and tropical accents. Two units are air-conditioned, while all others have ceiling fans. You mix your own drinks at the Soggy Dollar, and keep your own tab—the resident drink is the famed Painkiller —and yes, cruise-ship passengers often flood the place for a few hours midday. The restaurant (see below) is an old standard on the island.
