Fodor's Review

One of the Atlantic's latest great secrets, Tiamo is a hideaway for jet-setters in-the-know—arrival at this low-key yet sophisticated South Bight resort via private launch is just the start. Over-the-top service awaits, along with a cold drink in the Great Room—a stress-free gathering place with wood-beam ceilings that naturally combines bar and library. Individual cottages with wraparound porches are strung out along the powdery beach, shaded by coconut palms. Tiamo's new European management is receiving excellent reviews, both for cuisine and service. Originally cast as an eco-resort, the new emphasis is more on comfort and enjoyment; all villas and rooms are now air-conditioned. Six types of accommodations let you slink away privately into a beachfront cabin or expand in a spacious luxury villa with private pool and beach. Leisurely meals, exquisitely prepared with fresh ingredients, include seafood delights, homemade breads, and luscious desserts. All meals, snacks, soft beverages,

gym, Wi-Fi, and airport transfers are included in the room rate, as are cat sailing, see-thru kayaks, paddleboards, and snorkeling gear. Now a PADI dive center, Tiamo has always been a superb base for bone- and deep-sea fishing. Join Tiamo’s Nature Concierge on treks and you'll encounter crabs, rock iguanas, herons, egrets, and ospreys (some 330 bird species), and 20 orchid varieties. Meeting dolphins and turtles is a prize. After a day's interplay with nature, relax in a floating cabana or sip a drink in the pool—and you’ll know you've discovered a vacation nirvana that can't be kept secret.
