Set on one of the island’s finest beaches for watersports activities (swimming, snorkeling, windsurfing)—a mile of talcum powder white sand—these barefoot-casual West Indian–style cottages are tucked into a terraced hillside just 3 miles east of Christiansted. Chenay Bay’s a low-key boutique property, with just 50 cottages (each with its own charming front porch), and set on grounds that once held a sprawling sugar plantation. Chenay has a nimble versatility, its spacious cottages appealing both to honeymooners and families, the latter thanks to children’s programs and adjoining units, one that sleeps 8. Plus, kitchenettes here include full-size refrigerators. Cottages are neat and clean and simply furnished, most with an understated tropical palette. Those numbered 21-50 are bigger than the older ones. The resort often offers money-saving online packages, so check out the resort website before booking.
