This U-shaped barrier-island resort on the Atlantic "is like a castle on the beach." Activities "should definitely include relaxing in an Adirondack chair overlooking the dunes." Traditional rooms all have ocean-facing balconies and gold, green, and coral color schemes. At the end of dinner at Salt, where the menu plumbs local seasonal ingredients, "we were given a bag of our three favorite salts." One massage at the spa uses a hammock for spine elongation.
