Set on a soaring headland which rises above a trio of sandy beaches, this hillside compound of colorful wood-sided, tin-roofed cottages lies on 4 steeply inclined hectares (10 acres) of land that's crisscrossed and traversed with boardwalks, staircases, and tropical landscaping. When this all-inclusive opened, it gave Sandals some real competition. Understated elegance and a touch or two of funky West Indian charm combine in this cliff-side setting on the "sunset side" of the island. Accommodations are comfortable but unpretentious, often within clapboard-sided buildings modeled on traditional vernacular houses, many of which are raised on stilts, with hand-carved furnishings and island art. Guests stay in cottages or in one of four "plantation houses," suitable for up to four occupants, on the hill. Each cottage has a four-poster king-size bed and a private porch.
