WHY IT'S GREAT The beachside hotel was reimagined by its new South American owners who brought in iconic designer Christian Liaigre (think New York's Mercer Hotel), to leave his sleek touch on the 37 suites and villas.
WHAT TO DO Sample the twenty-two beaches of course. When at Flamands beach, eat lunch at La Case de l'Isle and if you opt for the more laid-back Shell Beach, dine at Yannick Noah's Do Brazil, housed in a funky bungalow. For dinner, a must is Maya's, where Paul McCartney and Harvey Weinstein are regulars.
BRING IT BACK Sea jewelry from Bijoux de la Mer, linen shirts from Blue Coast, leather driving shoes in bright colors from Laurent Effel, bohemian beach cover-ups from Poupette and organic beauty products, such as the cult fragrances Colombier and Lorient, from Belou's P.
