Treehouse hammock massages amid 1,400 acres of Caribbean coastal wilderness? Tender local shrimp and coconut ceviche washed down with mint-stuffed mojitos on a Bill Bensley pool chaise? Or a post-beach walk through the restored 1920s hacienda, once haunted by the likes of JFK and Joan Crawford? Such are the options at this rarefied resort, which opened in 2012 after a $342 million transformation.
