Queen’s Garden Resort

Top choice boutique hotel in The Bottom

With regal views over the Bottom, rainforest and ocean, the hillside 'Queen' has indeed welcomed Dutch royalty. The 12 spacious suites each occupy an entire floor and are filled with elegant Caribbean furnishings; most have a private Jacuzzi. For the ultimate evening meal, request the private 'Bird's Nest' platform high up in a mango tree (restaurant mains US$24 to US$39).

The on-site Frangipani Spa has its own line of Caribbean beauty products and includes a Finnish sauna and Turkish steam bath. It's a super-steep 700m walk from the Bottom.
