This off-the-beaten-path gem caters to in-the-know travelers who look for casual sophistication with the privacy and amenities of a larger hotel. Little Good Harbour is well-known for personalized service and the beachfront Fish Pot restaurant. One of the last family-run oceanfront hotels on the fashionable Platinum Coast, Little Good Harbour is comprised of a cluster of cottages situated around lush gardens and two swimming pools. Water sports and historic attractions are nearby.
Not far from Little Good Harbour, St. Nicholas Abbey is a former sugar plantation house -- one of only three surviving Jacobean mansions in the Western Hemisphere. Stop by for a complimentary guided tour of the 350-year-old great house, and purchase a bottle of house-made rum on the way out.
Little Good Harbour stocks each suite with groceries prior to the arrival of guests -- but guests should not plan to eat in every day. The Fish Pot restaurant is situated in a converted stone fort and overlooks white sand beaches and Caribbean waters.
Plan to visit the Fish Pot more than once -- the lunch menu alone includes curries, stir fries, entrees, pasta, salads and panini. For dinner, start with the cornmeal-fried calamari and move on to the grilled lobster or braised lamb shank. Room service is available.
All 121 villa suites are equipped with air conditioning in bedrooms, fully equipped kitchens, ceiling fans, hair-dryers, a stereo, cable television and DVD players. Each suite is distinctively styled -- from light and white to warm and traditional, with dark woods and poster beds. Choose from one- or two-bedroom garden cottages, or three-bedroom vineyard suites. A seaside fort houses the Fish Pot restaurant and two- and three-bedroom suites with amazing sea views.
Little Good Harbour features two intimate pools, beach gazebos, fitness rooms and free parking. The Little Spa at Little Good Harbour offers a nice range of services such as an aromatherapy steam room, massages, facials and a salt scrub.
