The scene at the pool of the Shore Club sometimes resembles a rap video: nubile, scantily clad women; chiselled guys with bling-bling jewellery, and a hip-hop soundtrack to facilitate the booty shaking. Hell, there was even a shooting here, back in 2005, when rap mogul Suge Knight took a bullet in the leg at an MTV party. The incident didn't scare guests away; on the contrary, the Shore Club now has more street cred. But it's not all about gangsta glam. The rooms have been given a fashionably minimalist but colourful makeover by Brit architect David Chipperfield. The filthy rich hole up in the Beach House, a private oceanside bungalow with pool. Added swoon factor comes courtesy of the restaurants - which include Robert de Niro's Nobu - and the Skybar, a sprawling Moroccan-chic affair that is packed out with everyone from demi celebs to cigarette girls selling lollies.
