This is the premier boutique luxury beach resort in this area in a region full of boutique luxury beach resorts. Florablanca consists of a collection of massive, elegant private villas spread around exuberant gardens. The foliage is so thick and abundant that you may get lost on the stone walkways that weave through the resort. About half the villas are designed for couples, and the rest feature a separate upstairs bedroom with two twins perfect for families—although no children under 6 are allowed. All feature a humongous living room that opens to an equally spacious private patio area, as well as large, open-air bathrooms with outdoor rain showers and separate free-standing tubs in a small private garden. Enjoy a morning Pilates or Ashtanga yoga class in the ocean-view open-air dojo, and follow it up with a cool dip in the large two-tiered pool. The spa is superb and the on-site restaurant Nectar ★★★ is one of the best in the area.
