Discovery at Marigot Bay, Marigot Bay

view web site ›'s insider take:

At first glance, the new Discovery at Marigot Bay looks incongruous—built directly into the steep slopes surrounding the bay, it has a ski lodge feel that could fit in Aspen. The 124 rooms are another departure from the cliché of Caribbean design: They are sleek and minimalist, with rich, dark wood furniture and cabinetry that conceals air-conditioning units, kitchen appliances, and wires. Still, the outstanding views from the large verandas, 30 of which have plunge pools (unfortunately, guests above have views of you), are unmistakably West Indian. A walk through the main lobby, decorated with Sharon Marston chandeliers and Louis Ghost chairs, leads to the famous and aptly named Hurricane Bar (the bay is a refuge in bad weather), which was kept intact during development. Recent additions cater to the always lively sailing crowd, so there is a boardwalk leading to an impressive array of clothing and gift shops, a French patisserie, and a full-service spa. Guests also have the use of the Caribbean's only solar-powered boat, which runs across the bay to the beach, restaurants, and bars.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:

Perched on a hillside fronting lovely Marigot Bay, this 124-room resort is a haven of low-key elegance. A long footpath lined with frangipani and ginger lilies leads to a dimly lit reception area. Guest rooms with wooden plantation shutters and wide verandas are given modern touches such as Brazilian hardwood flooring, Wi-Fi, and pillowtop beds. Slate-tiled bathrooms are a room highlight, with their pizza-size showerheads and generous portions of Kiehl's toiletries. Some staff are noticeably greener than others, though as a whole the service is friendly. There's only one full on-site restaurant, The Boudreau, but a quick ride across the bay on the hotel's solar-powered ferry can whisk you to other lively eateries.
