The sister hotel to the nearby Coral Reef Club, this small beachfront property is located in Holetown, surrounded by seven acres of tropical gardens. The family-owned hotel has 48 rooms, including two Tree Top Suites with wraparound terraces and private plunge pools. The rooms are individually designed, but all include island-inspired artwork and views of the sea or garden. Illuminated by torchlight, the open-air restaurant serves authentic Caribbean fare and hosts special events like the Sunday night barbecue with live steel-pan music. The hotel also has an outdoor pool, a casual beachside bar, and a 30-foot catamaran available for charters.

Room to Book:

For the most impressive view of both the garden and the sea, request a high-level room toward the center of the hotel.

Insider Tip:

Many repeat guests visit the hotel year after year, so it’s important to book early if you want a room with a sea view.
