You'll sleep serenely in villas pillowed in gardens of palm and banana trees and be just a 10-minute stroll from the buzzing action of Orient Bay when you book a room at this low-rise hotel. Each spacious villa is divided into a suite and two studios, which can be combined, and all are decorated in colorful West Indian style with tile floors and pitched wooden ceilings. Every room has a breeze-filled patio or balcony overlooking the lushly landscaped property—a few even have sea views peeking through the palms. Suites come with fully equipped kitchens, but you'll want to forgo cooking at least once to sample the saucy French and Creole dinners served at the resort restaurant, Café Plantation, centrally located by the swimming pool. The hotel is closed Sep 1 to mid-Oct.
