At the end of a short, bumpy dirt road, this secluded little resort seems tailor-made for a romantic getaway. Stunning architectural elements (picture a sweeping staircase like a Maya temple) carry over into stylish guest rooms with white polished-concrete floors and sinks, and walls tiled with retro-Copacabana (but locally made) ceramics. Book in advance to score a top-floor master suite, with a huge balcony and magnificent sea view. Garden villas have private gardens with hammocks and plunge pools. The access road is hard to drive, but the resort provides one-way airport transfers for $90. Big discounts are offered in winter and Sunday through Thursday in spring.
