The 65 original, thatched-roof bungalows have also been spruced up with luxe linens, handpainted Mexican tiles, and handwoven hammocks and rugs. The charming staff, from the maids who scatter bougainvillea blossoms on your bed to the waiters who prepare guacamole tableside, elevate the experience from mundane to genuinely personal.
