- Fort Recovery Beachfront Villa & Suites HotelFirst to ReviewOct 23, 2012
This west end, beachfront property has evolved over the decades, with new additions here and tucked into over there. Its name is derived from the stone ruins of a fort. The reception is one of the original hotel buildings and has that funky, Caribbean charisma. (The staff is cool, too.) Juxtapose that with, say, the eight-room party villa with its own pier and you have quite a mix. The owner, who began constructing her island dream in1968, was a New York theater producer for on and off Broadway. She lives on island in a fascinating, eclectic home perched over the sea. (It can be yours for $4 million plus.) Her artsy taste is exhibited throughout the complex, particularly in the “party” villa where vintage theater posters share space with contemporary furnishings, textiles and Caribbean art. The smaller units are not as exciting but are modernized and have kitchenettes. I would prefer a second-floor view, although downstairs, you can open the door and run into the water. And there is snorkeling and day sails and inviting packages that include spa services, yoga and Pilate’s classes and most meals. ‘Can’t comment on the new, unadorned restaurant adjacent to the pool, as it is not open to the public.
