Enthusiasts return again and again to the classy, loft-style suites in this immaculate boutique hotel. Units are tastefully decorated in dark wood, plantation-tropic-style, with big four-poster beds; modern kitchens are sleek and are stocked with basics before you arrive. The bathrooms have chic waterfall showerheads and double vessel sinks. This attention to detail and great service is a hallmark of Kristin Petrelluzzi, who also owns Le Petit Hotel nearby on Grand Case
Beach. Private terraces with astounding sunset and bay views are a lovely touch, but you might hear your neighbors enjoying their sundowners too. The big pool is in the pretty garden; you'll have to walk about 10 minutes down the hillside to reach Grand Case beach.
