WHY GO? This pristine, colonial-style hideaway just completed a $1.5 million top-to-bottom renovation. Its setting―the entrance of historic English Harbour on the captivating southern coast of the island―couldn’t be more ideal. Sterling silver-plated cutlery, gleaming china, and jacquard linens set the tone in the acclaimed Terrace Restaurant, where you can savor the refined creations of executive chef Fred Cougnon. For more-casual fare, try the Reef Restaurant and Beach Bar, enlivened by the beat of a Cuban band or tinkling piano music depending on the mood du jour.
HOLIDAY FUN: Festooned lighted trees in courtyard and main salon, carolers singing on boats in the harbor; 268/460-1014 or
