A hammock hanging before a beachside sunset shouts vacation, and there are plenty of these to be found here. Underneath opulent overwater houses, a crystalline turquoise lagoon glistens, providing views so beautiful that your camera will go into overdrive. Only a few villas (both on land and on the water) have their own plunge pool, but they all have rain showers, sundecks, and a bright, colorful décor.
2. Lily Beach Resort & Spa
