Fodor's Expert Review Arnos Vale Hotel
Arnos Vale and Franklin Rds., Box 208, Scarborough, Tobago, Trinidad and Tobago
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
On 450 hillside acres, this hotel is the perfect retreat for nature lovers and lovers in general. Princess Margaret spent her honeymoon here, and it's still easy to see why—the world seems very far away. Rooms are little white cottages set into the hillside, so privacy isn't hard to find. A winding path takes you down to a picture-perfect beach, pool, and bar. Some of the best snorkeling on the island can be done off the hotel's beach. The hilltop restaurant—furnished with antiques, iron-lattice tables, and a chandelier—has a magnificent patio with sweeping sea views. The hotel began an ongoing upgrade of rooms and facilities in 2013.
