These dramatically set one-, two-, and three-bedroom bungalows (imported from Finland) cling like glorified tree houses to a cliff overlooking several glittering beaches. Enormous enclosed patios open onto the island's most glorious vistas; monkeys and pelicans often drop by informally. Every cottage has a full kitchen; many have outdoor gas grills and private swimming pools (those with no pool are especially good buys). It's a short if precipitous walk to Oualie and Lover's
beaches, but a tiny hotel pool sits in the foundation of a 250-year-old fort, shaded by a magnificent baobab tree. The bungalows are decorated with beamed ceilings, batik wall hangings, terra-cotta floors, Thai teak furnishings, striking abstract art naïf, and beds swaddled in mosquito netting. Most coveted, especially by honeymooners, are Pelican, Baobab, Williwaw, Sea Biscuit, and the ultraprivate Monkey cottages.
