This is the island's finest, most appealing, and most stylish place to stay. It's historically evocative and infinitely intimate, and invariably leaves a visitor with the impression that enormous amounts of love, tenderness, loyalty, and devotion have been showered upon the place by the resident innkeepers, long-ago refugees from the bookselling business in Princeton, New Jersey, the Keusch family. Ten kilometers (6 1/4 miles) north of the airport, and near a rainforest, it occupies a 14-hectare (35-acre) site that functioned during the 17th century as a plantation. Those seeking historically evocative charm will appreciate the rooms within the gracefully restored 1832 great house. Other units include free-standing cottages and a newer (c. 2006) series of hideaway and very romantic suites, each with a view of the sea, a private plunge pool, and furniture that's artfully appropriate to the setting and the 19th-century flair in which this place excels. Regardless of their location and category, rooms are elegantly appointed and very spacious, with queen- or king-size beds. Guests enjoy body polishing or body wraps at the trendy Mango Orchard Spa set in a replica of a traditional wood-framed Antillean cottage called a chattel house.
