Expert Review

This ultra-chic hideaway, sister hotel to London's One Aldwych, affects a minimalist stark-not-Starck aesthetic, with Architectural Digest-worthy interiors. Yet despite the stratospheric price tag and equally haute design, Carlisle Bay isn't stuffy: Service is affable yet attentive. Little extras include complimentary non-motorized watersports and a movie screening room. The fare at the sexy pan-Asian eatery East and more casual but chic Indigo on the Beach is uniformly excellent. Eighty-eight enormous split-level suites seamlessly blend classic and contemporary accents (including espresso machines and fiber-optic bed lights); picture windows transform the bay with Montserrat smoldering in the background into a living canvas. Insider tip: There are deals to be had here in early January. Check the website for discounted packages that bundle meals into nightly rates, providing tremendous savings.
