This luxurious, sculpture-filled resort on the island of Santa Cruz is set on a hilltop amid 75 acres that have been replanted with some 9,000 native trees. The property includes 12 rooms with either patios or balconies, plus two larger suites, one of which has a private plunge pool. Opt for a slightly more expensive Balcony Room, which has higher ceilings and unobstructed views toward the distant coast through floor-to-ceiling windows. All suites have a simple but plush décor with dark bamboo floors and comfortable living rooms. Amenities include an airy lobby-lounge, a restaurant, a wide infinity pool and the small Sumaq Spa. Unforgettable excursions with Pikaia’s 105-foot yacht to nearby islands can be arranged, along with private charters.
