Tensing Pen Resort
Tensing Pen is one of those rare island hideaways that has made the successful transition from 1974 hippie hangout to rustic-chic boutique hotel. With everything from yoga classes and seaside massages to hammocks strung beneath trees overlooking the ocean, the emphasis is on total relaxation. From the outside, the cluster of thatched-roof, stone-and-dark-wood bungalows (housing 23 different room, suite, and villa accommodations) looks vaguely Asian, while the furnishings inside are a whimsical blend of rattan, bamboo, and heavy wooden furniture with jewel-toned accents in the form of Caribbean folk art.
Room to Book: Two-story bungalows like South House and Long House have stunning views of the blue water from their private balconies, but the most romantic is Cove Cottage, set on a cliff above the sea.
