From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
One of the first components of the Christophe Harbour development, Turtle Beach Bungalows provides an experience pared to the essentials: four beachfront one-bedroom bungalows, built of reclaimed pine and concealed by dense landscaping, and a breezy restaurant by the water. That's it. No throbbing lounge bar, no water sports center, no giant spa—a stay here is a true exercise in quietude. The bungalows have bamboo-lined vaulted ceilings and platform beds topped by a platoon of cushions. Sliding doors open to a deck with a plunge pool, a cedar-shingled cabana with a daybed, an outdoor shower under a canopy of sea-grape leaves, and spellbinding views of Nevis and Booby islands. It's a setup perfect for couples who want little more than each other's company and are content to call on the easygoing staff when they're needed. In the end, it's the details that stand out, from the complimentary in-room snacks (Dean & Deluca pineapple rings and chocolate malted balls, Ting grapefruit sodas from Jamaica, a bottle of local Brinley rum), to the cell phone programmed with the numbers for the restaurant and concierge (calls to the United States are gratis), to the free airport transfers.—2011 Hot List

Which room to book: The four bungalows are identical except for variations in their fabrics, but No. 4, Coralita, is the most secluded.
