Spread out over 85 acres with a mile-long beach and five pools, there’s plenty of room to do exactly what you want—even if that’s nothing at all. A series of four-story buildings house the resort’s 250 rooms—there aren’t many neighboring properties nearby and it doesn’t feel as touristy as other resorts on the island.

Most rooms come with one king or two queen beds, contemporary décor, furnished balconies and every room faces the grounds, pool and ocean. Splash Premium Ocean View and Concierge Premium Ocean View Suites have one king and two trundle beds, or two queen-size beds and a sofa. The Concierge Premium Ocean View Suites come with extra amenities, like evening turn-down service, stocked mini-fridges and first choice on dinner reservations.

Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa has no less than nine on-site restaurants offering casual and fine dining, and oceanfront venues. Choose from Asian, Italian, seafood, international, grilled favorites and more. Seven bars—including a swim-up bar—are on the property as well.
