This brilliant boutique hotel is one of the best addresses on the island. Ensconced in a renovated 1870 homestead and outbuildings, Glen Isla is all about understated, old-world luxury with modern touches such as huge plasma TVs. It has 2 acres of lovely gardens and is only a five-minute walk to the beach. No children under 12.

The suites are decked out with a lavish poster king bed, and includes a complimentary bottle of bubbles and chocolate; other rooms have complimentary port. A full English breakfast is available for an additional $30, which is often included in your rate.
