The Montpelier Plantation and Beach Resort, a Relais & Chateaux property, has upgraded its beach, doubling its size with two extra acres of sand, not to mention six new beach cabanas, complete with private showers. Lucky sun-worshipers can enjoy mango chilli-glazed mahi mahi and a fruit cocktail served in their private cabana or at the new pavilion lunch deck. If you can pull yourself off your cushioned lounger, adventure is at your fingertips: snorkeling, ocean kayaking, and mountain biking through the rainforest are all complimentary activities provided by the hotel. Vacationers can also venture off the resort to climb Nevis Peak (3,232 feet) for breath-taking views of the island or visit nearby Botanical Gardens. Save 42 percent through October 31 with the Montperlier on a Whim package, which includes a free room upgrade, complimentary nightly dinner for one, free tennis, and unlimited use of snorkeling equipment. Rates start at $242/night. 869-469-3462; www.
