Fodor's Review

This healing, hillside hideaway aims to "eliminate all potential worries" by emphasizing simple natural beauty and West Indian warmth. Pastel-hue, creole-style cottages with gingerbread trim and distinctive wattle-and-daub terrace dividers have pine floors, sisal rugs, mosquito netting, Adirondack chairs, and bleached-wood louvers. Fresh flowers plucked from the exquisite gardens add splashes of color. The sparkling bay vistas from every room are restorative in themselves, though a wellness center offers massages, facials, and scrubs, many using indigenous ingredients. Yoga classes and nature hikes further promote de-stressing, though worriers can request complimentary cell phones (you pay for calls). Only the ho-hum food—except at on-site but independent Sheer Rocks—and pokey if pretty beaches somewhat compromise the relaxing vibe.
