Sand Castles

by slh

These six new or revamped OCEANFRONT resorts are ripe for postmarital bliss.

Amanera - Dramatic Cliffs - Golf on the Ocean

Amanera, Dominican Republic

Aman junkies, rejoice: The vaunted hotel group’s cult following is busy booking flights to its latest outpost, perched on a cliff facing Playa Grande beach. The 25 sumptuous casitas blend seamlessly into their surrounds—bordered by jungle, overlooking the ocean. amanresorts.com/amanera


Four Seasons Resort Lanai, Hawaii

Petite Lanai is as far removed from the tourist thrum as you can get in Hawaii, and the Four Seasons continues its reign atop the bluffs as the beguiling isle’s top address with a slick top-to-toe remodel—complete with Polynesian-inspired decor, bespoke furnishings and new fully customizable beds in its 268 rooms and suites. fourseasons.com/lanai


Playa Grande Beach Club, Dominican Republic

A vintage-inspired wedding needs a throwback-style honeymoon. Playa Grande Beach Club is a study in colonial refinement: verandas dotted with cane furniture, latticed cabanas flanking the pool, patterned woodwork and tiles, and bungalows with rooms splashed in tropical prints. playagrandebeachclub.com


The St. Regis Volummi Resort, Maldives

Even an archipelago that’s come to be synonymous with luxury could do with a dose of St. Regis’ distinctive brand of cosseting service. Come September, the luxe hotel group takes over a private island in the Maldives with 77 suites on 22 lush, secluded acres. stregis.com


GoldenEye, Jamaica

Jamaica’s sexiest hotel—it’s the former abode of James Bond creator Ian Fleming, so we expect no less—is adding 26 airy, eco-friendly beach huts to its roster. The caveat: no AC—fall asleep to the cooling breeze rolling off Oracabessa Bay. goldeneye.com


COMO The Treasury, Perth, Australia

It’s an unlikely choice for a first foray into Australia, but COMO Hotels and Resorts has descended on Perth with a bang: The 19th-century heritage State Buildings now boast 48 rooms and suites awash in minimal-luxe (heated travertine floors and handcrafted furniture) along with COMO’s Shambhala Urban Escape. comohotels.com/​the​treasury
