Set in a secluded bay and comprised of just 27 eco-chic, individual cottage suites, Hermitage Bay provides all the comforts of a 5 star hotel without compromising the natural habitat that thrives around it. Given its boutique size and limited number of guests, service is personal, discreet, and attentive; and the setting is naturally romantic – making it an ideal escape for couples.

Pros: We absolutely loved Galley Bay and the beachfront rooms. Stayed for tens days and still did not want to leave. We thought the food was very good and fell in love with their signature Galley Bay special drink. Was perfect setting for honeymoon as we wanted quiet romantic setting.
Cons: The bugs on the beach were very annoying. We used an entire bottle of bug spray! It was just gnats but I would think fogging the areas would help.
