Vieques Puerto Rico: Pick a side at the new W Retreat & Spa
Photographer David Hillegas

Pick a side at the new W Retreat & Spa

In March, it opened with an innovative idea: Choose your side of the hotel. The left is soothing and quiet, with adults-only beach access. Or check in on the right side, with its upbeat island tunes and deluxe, see-and-be-seen pool.

Tip: Before hitting the beach, let the W fix an Escape Kit for two that includes chair rental, an umbrella, and a picnic ($45). Bravo Beach Hotel, North Shore Rd 1; 787/741-1128 or bravobeachhotel.com.
