Why You Will Love It

This hotel is the crème de la crème of the Caribbean! A truly 5-star luxury experience, this boutique beach-front property has it all. From the gorgeous beach-front accommodations (the smallest room is 900 sq ft!) with private plunge pools to the serene spa tucked in to lush vegetation, the options to un-plug and relax are plenty. Or, if lying on the beach while frozen cocktails are delivered to you isn’t your thing, there are 3 golf courses and 11 miles of nature trails to keep you busy. This property is the epitome of an “exotic sanctuary” – the staff anticipates your every need while the resort allows for you to relax or explore (or both!). Plus—each guest gets their own bicycle upon check-in featuring a personalized license plate. Talk about getting around in style!

The Details

Located about 30-40 minutes from SJU, but it feels a world away. San Juan is a large, bustling metropolis, but as soon as you arrive on property, you are transported to a serene, tropical paradise situated amidst the jungle on the Caribbean Sea.

Fly in to SJU. A private transfer is recommended as airport taxis can be more expensive and less reliable.
