Justifiably celebrated, this 1940s-era luxury hotel overlooks a spectacular secluded beach on Bacolet Bay just outside Scarborough. Though long neglected, it has been brought back to life by Austrian Karl Pilstl and his wife. The lobby is a study in 1940s perfection and appears now as it may have when Rita Hayworth came through. Rooms have teak floors and glass-partitioned bathrooms (with curtains); four-poster beds and lavish beddings are standard. Rooms in a new wing
have sunken sitting areas. Most activity takes place at the No Problem beach bar, where a barbecue always seems to be in progress. The hotel is surrounded by water on three sides, so every room has a spectacular ocean view. The hotel's restaurant, Shutters on the Bay, serves splendid food in an unbeatable atmosphere. Meal plans are available.

We just arrived back home from a 7 night stay at the Blue Haven and couldn't have asked a more wonderful experience. The service was terrific, the room exquisite with breathtaking views in the evening. The restaurant provided excellent food with first class service.

We stayed for 2 weeks at this hotel and it was fantastic. Beautiful views, friendly staff, wonderful weekly barbeque buffet, and a picture perfect beach. If you are looking for a romantic small boutique property, look no further, Blue Haven has it all.
