Fodor's Review

Its beachfront "Treehouse" bures first put this family-owned boutique resort on the map and its stylish new "infinity pool" and soaring open-air dining bure are likely to keep it there. Island bures lack air-conditioning and have outdated bathrooms; most guests stay in the spacious beachfronts, which have intricately tiled outdoor showers (as well as indoor ones) and a polished-natural feel. The split-level Treehouse bures built into pacific almond trees are another big step up (an impressive flight of them, actually), with dual basin sinks on timber-slab counters and outdoor lava rock showers. There's also a large villa. All bures are steps from the ocean and a sand-path makes footwear unnecessary. The resort guards its honeymooners' right to private picnics on the island's breathtaking Horseshoe Bay and scenic hiking, outstanding snorkeling and scuba diving are also options. Menus fuse international and Pacific Rim fare and offer a great selection.
