The resort, which opened in January, features 135 units — 31 beachfront and 104 island view. — on 12 waterfront acres. Guests leave the U.S. 1 traffic and feel an instant sense of seclusion, relaxation and retreat from all the outside hustle and bustle.

Upon arrival and check in, guests hop on a golf cart where they’re taken back to their piece of paradise: a bungalow with the highly demanded waterfront view or a garden bungalow nestled into the lush landscaping.
