Just steps away from the shore, the Lone Pine Hotel is a charming property that was refurbished in 2010 to a more contemporary version of the original hotel, which began operations in 1948. The tall casuarina trees provide shade and a lovely view, while the hammocks are a popular afternoon escape. Rooms are airy and either face the sea or garden, and there are family-sized options available. Dining options include alfresco dining at Bungalow, modern Japanese dishes at Matsu, or tapas and wine at Batubar. A massage at Pure Energy Spa is the icing on the cake.
