FINE HOTELS & RESORTS MEMBER

The hotel, which opened in 2012, is one of those prop­erties that, other than the guest rooms’ somewhat nonintuitive computer-panel light switches, is more or less flawless. Standard rooms are like mini apartments at 650 square feet, and every room has at least a 210-square-foot terrace with an ocean view. In other words, there isn’t a bad room. Even on busy days, the hotel never feels too crowded: The lobby is an oasis of calm; there’s always an open pool or a beach chair. Plus, the staff services guests to the max. In December 2016, the resort will complete a $35 million enhancement project that includes three additional four-bedroom guest suites, an expanded lobby space, and a new Greek restaurant. The only disappointment is checking out. (Rooms, from $772)
