Fodor's Expert Review Aité

, La Guajira, Colombia Fodor's Choice

Bungalows dot the beach between arching coco palms while the main house, open-air lounge, and restaurant perch on a hill taking in expansive views of the surrounding forest and wave-swept beach–-this is the scene at Aité. The well-constructed bungalows maintain a cool atmosphere with ceiling fans that help keep the oppressive heat at bay and screened sliding doors that allow fresh air in, but keep invading insects out. The beds are welcoming yet firm and oversized pillows add luxury, while details like a shower with beach views and a deck hung with hammocks make the bungalows a perfect setting for a relaxing beach holiday. The hotel is enchanting at night, as starlike solar lights create pathways between the main house and the bungalows.
