Concierge.com's insider take:
This 28-room hotel is equal parts hideaway and art gallery. Owner Margit Abrahamsson is a Swedish expat who has turned her hotel into her own canvas. She has covered each of its main spaces in color, such as orange or aqua, and created a fish-shaped stained-glass window in the Moskito Bar. Further aesthetic flourishes include a honeymoon suite hewn from bamboo, stained wicker chairs, and traditional Carib-Indian paintings everywhere. The many guests who feel duly inspired to bring their own easels and painting supplies fit right in. The hotel takes its name from its prime location on Friendship Bay, home to one of the most scenic beaches on the island.
Closed late July to early September.
