Fodor's Review

Verandah's splendid hillside setting overlooks calm, reef-protected Dian Bay, and hiking trails snake around the property to Devil's Bridge National Park. Though local activists disagree, this ecocentric resort emphasizes low-impact environmental responsibility, without sacrificing upscale contemporary conveniences. The mint-and-apricot New England–meets-Creole cottages built on stilt-like pylons incorporate solar energy. There are plentiful activities for kids, including

ecological edutainment, an 18-hole mini-golf course, a playground, and their own pool and restaurant. The sizable, villa-style units offer unobstructed ocean or bay views (Units 167–186 are primo); vaulted ceilings; stylish touches like granite countertops; natural materials such as wood, bamboo, and stone; family-friendly sofa beds and kitchenettes; and such high-tech necessities as flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi access (in those closest to the public spaces and pool). Other first-rate facilities include an enormous free-form swimming pool that doubles as a social center, an adults-only grotto pool, several appealing restaurants, a minicinema, and the Tranquility Body & Soul Spa.
