From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
At the northern tip of St Lucia, Cap Maison perches on a cliff like a small orderly village. This cluster of three-storey white buildings features a Spanish (via Caribbean) colonial architectural motif with its characteristic Moorish inflections, painted tiles, and dark wood. The 50 rooms are kitted out with local paintings and richly upholstered furniture (including an oversized chaise longue at the foot of the bed), balconies, louvered shutters, as well as lovely bathrooms with painted ceramic sinks. Some suites come with a private plunge pool but, should you prefer company, there is a small cliff-edge cascading pool as well as a larger one surrounded by chaise longues. At the bottom of a long staircase is a small protected beach for swimming and snorkeling. Resort guests also have access to a new motor yacht for sunset cruises and day-trips (lunch in Martinique, anyone?). The exceptional restaurant, which overlooks the water, expertly prepares dishes like mahi mahi with a garlic brown butter and dark greens. Staff are friendly and solicitous and will arrange meals in your suite or a car and driver, generally catering to your every whim. —2009 Hot List

When to go: Late April, when room rates drop but before hurricane season.

Which room to book: The over-the-top experience is the one-bedroom suite with its own kitchen, pool, and rooftop terrace overlooking the sea.
