Stress seems to slide away at this tranquil hideaway, on a pretty mainland bay one hour by boat from Port Barton. The British owners, dedicated to conservation, have created a mini protected marine area and turtle sanctuary in front of several impeccably manicured white-sand beaches. It offers 24-hour electricity and free use of kayaks. The new top-whack villas are truly luxurious.

All rooms have air-con and plasma TVs. Book directly on the website for the best rates.
