This upscale boutique hotel is a hidden gem on an undiscovered patch of sand. Originally built as a sister resort to Xandari, it now has separate owners and management. Still, the individual villas here feature the same artsy sensibility, which means they’re oversized, with white tile floors, white walls, white bed linens, and loads of natural light, all accented with bold splashes of primary colors found in paintings, mosaic tile works, curtains, and more. The best villas feature ocean views and private plunge pools, and the open-air ocean-view restaurant is top-notch.
