Antigua: Hermitage Bay

This sybaritic spot is a paragon of privacy and sclusion. Just a 40-minute drive from the airport on the west side of Antigua, the four-year-old resort includes tropical gardens surrounding 25 cottages of a hillside above the beach. Outside, each private bungalow's wooden deck overlooks the bay. Inside, gleaming dark wood floors, handmade furniture, and white linens lend a sophisticated but comfortable ambience. The resort's 17 Hillside cottages feature private plunge pools.

Go Ahead, Indulge: The bountiful gardens are brimming with native blooms, intermingled with organic fruits, vegetables, and herbs--all used in the resort's meals.

Make A Date: Ask the chef to pack a basket with your choice of gourmet snacks and then hit a secluded beach or private island (transportation provided).

Best Sunset: The view's excellent from the Hillside Cottages.

Rates: From $1,450; 268/562-8080 or hermitagebay.com
