This resort is a cluster of charming little houses surrounding a lushly landscaped outdoor pool quite near the beach. The Alamanda is small and intimate, like a European beachfront inn, and sort of a boutique resort opening onto Orient Bay's
beautiful beach. Bedrooms are spacious and decorated with Caribbean fabrics and bold colors, ranging from sunflower yellow to tomato red or "ocean turquoise." The best accommodations are the 2-bedroom duplexes with a second bathroom.
Just a few steps away you have Kakao Beach Restaurant
, and Coco Beach Restaurant
featuring both Creole and European specialties in a laid-back Caribbean atmosphere. Another very good choice is the nearby award winning Restaurant L'Astrolab
, with an inventive tropical cuisine served at poolside.
And visit Village d'Orient
for a fun night out. You find there many shops and restaurants in a Mediterranean village square like setting.
