Secluded beaches, tennis courts and a spa welcome guests at this stylish island getaway.
Appropriately, this W hotel dubs itself “retreat and spa.” There is a mood of tranquility floating in the air here, and even the W's usual modernist style is subject to this soothing influence. The lobby, wide open to the sea and tastefully decorated without excess, encourages guests to unwind. Even the smallest of rooms feature open-concept bathtubs, while further up the scale, Wow Ocean Front Retreats boast direct access to the beach.
Alain Ducasse originally set up the food and beverage program at the resort, and these days signature restaurant Sorcé serves traditional island cuisine with a twist. The property’s facilities include SWEAT fitness center, AWAY Spa and outdoor tennis courts; as well, guests can enjoy a multitude of activities such as kayaking, horseback riding, beach volleyball, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing and bike rentals. Although this is decidedly a destination for play, the property has five meeting spaces and all the necessary conference equipment.
