1. North Beach Plantation
Feel like a king at this towering resort, literally – you can see from almost anywhere on the coast. The rooms range from lavish, one- to five-bedroom condos and two-story townhouses, to private villages and cottages along tree-lined streets. While every room is spacious (think 9ft-high ceilings, double doors and walk-in closets), the real gem is the Bridge. Suspended between the resort’s two towers, this 5,200-square-foot penthouse has seven bedrooms, seven and a half baths, a media room and a private balcony with panoramic ocean views. We’d book that one just to find out what half a bath is.
