“We don't have a full review for this property yet, but it has been recommended and inspected by our Caribbean expert James Henderson, an independent travel journalist writing for the Telegraph and the Financial Times, including its luxury magazine How to Spend it, as well as being series editor of the Definitive Caribbean Guides.”
The newest and loveliest addition to the island's hotels, all-inclusive or not, is Hermitage Bay, named after the supremely secluded crescent beach, above which rises a steep verdant hillside dotted with 17 handsome wooden cottages, each with a plunge pool. There are a further eight cottages close to the sand; they are smaller and lack plunge pools but have other advantages, not least their location. All have modish minimalist interiors, shaded verandahs and silvery wallaba-shingle hip roofs just like the ones in nearby Nelson's Dockyard, the exquisite Georgian settlement built by the British navy in the 18th century.

The 25 cottage suites are vast, strung out across a (slightly bare) hillside which is slowly being given over to tropical greenery. Those on the hill (as opposed to those built by the beach) have incredible views, as well as private plunge pools and verandas. Décor is a mixture of Asian and plantation house: dark-wood floors, open-air showers, white linen and wooden shutters which open up one side of the room.
