Fodor's Expert Review Kú
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
This all-suites hotel is modeled on the barefoot chic of Miami's South Beach; the airy white apartments have lime and turquoise decorative accents, glass and chrome furniture, and balconies overlooking the beach or the pool. It's a great choice for young people because of the relaxed attitude and relatively gentle room rates. Plans are underway for upgrades to the property for 2011. The location on 1½-mi-long (2½-km-long) Shoal Bay Beach, with its string of lively beach grills and dive shops, is a winner. The open-air restaurant hops at breakfast, lunch, and dinner with omelets, salads, pizza, grilled seafood, and burgers and the famous fish-and-chips specialties of Chef Dale Carty of Tasty's. The 70-foot-long beachside bar serves up snacks and frosty drinks as well as such entertainments as live music and karaoke, but Shoal Bay regulars know that the spectacular sunsets are reason enough to hang till dark. Top off the whole package with a St. Barth–style beachwear boutique (ZaZaa) and a minimarket to provision your unit's kitchen.
