Hotel Banana Azul is perpetually improving and tweaking its intimate 14-room retreat on a dramatic—and private—stretch of black-sand beach. Most recently it added two-story vacation villas with private plunge pools, and it plans to update the already spectacular Caribbean restaurant. The accommodations vary in size and style, with some featuring Jacuzzi tubs and ocean terraces as well as design elements including casha-wood panels and stainless steel. Hammocks strung between coconut palms, dangling bromeliads, and a koi pond create a decidedly tropical atmosphere.
