In December, the Hotel Le Toiny will reveal eight new fully secluded, freestanding villas. With this first-ever two-story offering, the downstairs entertaining will not interfere with the intimacies of the upstairs master bedrooms and open-air vistas from the private balconies. Sun bathe in the privacy of each villa’s infinity pool and soak in the magnificent views of the Caribbean Sea. Each villa will have ample room to accommodate an extra guest or two. Best of all, these new villas arrive just in time for Hotel Le Toiny’s 25th anniversary – perhaps you could make it a double anniversary celebration, as well. Further the adventure with a newly offered private surf lesson in the resort’s very own “secret spot” in Le Toiny’s Bay. More than tips on mounting and staying on the board, there will be an eco-lesson or two on the history and preservation of the surrounding coral reefs that are home to an abundance of marine life. Whether seeking the surf or just secluded serenity, escape this December to Hotel Le Toiny. www.letoiny.com
