Prominently positioned on the powdery-white 12-mile beach, the fashionable 22-acre resort features magnificent ocean views and lushly landscaped gardens; courtyards; and secluded dune pavilions, a collection of hand-crafted bedded pavilions strategically placed in the dunes for the ultimate in privacy and relaxation. Nearby, rolling hills dotted with wild cotton and yellow orchids provide a beguiling backdrop for the resort's architecturally striking buildings and oceanfront pool.

Believing that exceptional comfort, dining and service are the defining characteristics of the luxury experience, the resort enlisted Duncan MacArthur, a seasoned hotelier with more than 30 years of experience worldwide, and Jeffrey Boland, whose experience includes general manager and resident manager at two top Caribbean resorts, to ensure a seamless and personalized service experience throughout the jewel-like property.
