Concierge.com's insider take:

Formerly the Sereno Beach Hotel, this remade, rebranded property opened in 2005, looking to match the cast of other high-enders on the island. Located in the bay of the Grand Cul de Sac, it shoots for simplicity and understatement, as evidenced by Christian Liaigre's design. A whitewashed beach-cabin look can be found in all 37 of the rooms and suites. The sea here is not quite the bluer-than-blue fantasy to be found in other places, such as St. Jean and La Saline, but it's a popular spot for water sports, and the long sunken pool just off the beach is hugely inviting. The Grand Suite Plage rooms (numbered 1 through 4) have full sea views, and the Villa du Pêcheur has its own small pool. The more compact (and less expensive) suite terraces are quite charming, each with its own garden and glimpses of the sea. In summer 2009, Le Sereno opened three additional Liaigre-designed, four-bedroom villas, each with over 6,500 square feet of space (indoors and outdoors), a private pool, a full kitchen, 24-hour butler service, access to the hotel's amenities, and a price tag upwards of $9,000 per day in high season.

Closed September and October.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
At the quiet end of an idyllic cove, this cottage colony has been utterly remade by master minimalist Christian Liaigre. The decor is elaborately spare—bare white walls, dark wood floors, and nary a rounded edge or flourish in sight—but with no sacrifice to comfort. The 37 rooms have buttery linens and walled gardens with giant daybeds (Grandes Suites add settees and bathtubs), and cushioned banquettes make up most of the restaurant's seating. Caveat: At these prices, the service and food could be better. —2006 Hot List

When to go: Winter brings the beautiful people; spring and summer, attractive rates.

Which room to book: Avoid the noisier Suites Terrasses; Grandes Suites Plages Nos. 20–35 are the most private (doubles, $540–$903).

Amenities: 24-hour Room Service, Bar/lounge, Beach, Pool
