Fodor's Review

This resort is magical: spectacular rooms—some with fourth walls completely open to the stunning Piton views—peek out of the thick rain forest that cascades down a steep hillside to the sea. Deluxe hillside rooms have a balcony, tile floors, handmade wooden furniture, madras fabrics, and impressive artwork. You won't find any communication devices, technology, or interruption: it's delightfully peaceful. Diving, jungle biking through the estate's 600 acres, and ocean

kayaking are premier activities; rejuvenate afterward at the Kai Belte Spa. Be prepared, though, for the bone-crushing dirt road between the town and the resort and the steep climb to most rooms. There is a helipad, so you can get to the airport by helicopter if you prefer. A water taxi offers an alternative way into town, or you can simply revel in the gorgeous isolation. Shuttle service is available to negotiate the 100 steps between the beach and the hillside rooms.
