The resort is a winner, with 25 pastel cottages discretely tucked into a landscaped bird sanctuary along Pink Sands Beach. Even the least expensive rooms are spacious and bright, with traditional yet clean-lined furnishings, private patios with teak furniture, and tawny, tiled bathrooms that inspire guests to renovate back home. There are two tennis courts, kayaks, snorkeling gear, a pool, and a fitness center for guests taking a break from canoodling, as well as a front desk that can connect guests with tour operators who offer sunset sails, diving, fishing (all kinds), and day trips to Eleuthera.
