After the thrills and spills of New York, where better to park yourself for some serious chill-out action? A mere 20-minute drive from the airport, what's affectionately known as 'The Bluff' is a colonial-style retreat that sits on a rugged peninsular, surrounded by coral reefs, with a surf beach - the Atlantic Ocean - to one side and a tranquil crystal-clear bay - the Caribbean Sea - to the other.
You're encouraged to think of it as your home away from home (oh, if only) - which is easy to do as there's a no room key policy. And you won't even touch your wallet either, as everything is included: scuba diving, fishing, waterskiing and sea kayaking to name a few. Top off a hard day at the beach in one of the gourmet restaurants, offering mouth-watering French/Caribbean menus. Try the refreshing watermelon gazpacho followed by a fresh, line-caught wahoo or mahi mahi.
WOW FACTOR The spa has spectacular views of Montserrat. Unwind here, post-massage, to watch the sun melt into the horizon.
