In a multimillion-dollar renovation, designer Wallace Tutt transformed this former private house on a coral bluff into a breezy boutique hotel, with nine guest rooms and an oceanfront cottage. The location, on a low bluff above the harbor, can be a detractor for some visitors, but many rooms have great views thanks to it. Meals are taken at the dining room’s massive wooden table, which seats sixteen guests and is formally laid with a candelabra and silver, or on the covered terrace offering prime vistas. For those who prefer to be on the beach, an oceanfront cottage (La Samana) can also be rented through Rock House.  There’s a small gym and a lovely swimming pool surrounded by stylish, tented cabanas that are available only to hotel guests.

Who Should Stay

Couples who yearn to inhabit the pages of design magazines; every aspect has been considered. Families and those who crave instant access to the sea will be happier elsewhere (children under the age of 18 are not allowed). The hotel is on the harbor side of the island, so getting to the beach entails a ten-minute walk or a golf-cart ride.
