What’s It’s Like: Get away from the gated all-inclusives of Negril and Mo'bay at this funky resort with Moroccan-style villas and surfside shacks on stilts. Conceived by set designer Sally Henzell, each of the 29 rooms and suites has its own unique features: second-story private patio with daybed, private garden with lily pond, even an infinity plunge pool.
Why It’s a Bargain: It’s hard to find so much style for so little. Plus, you don’t have to travel far for nighttime entertainment: there’s a poolside bar and a media room that screens films in the evenings. Bonus: Pelican Bar, a hangout in the middle of the ocean, is a 20-minute boat ride away.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
