The San Juan Water and Beach Club Hotel is already one of Puerto Rico’s trendiest hotels, but with $2.5 million dollars spent on recent renovations, it has even more to offer. Notably new is Mist, a rooftop bar and lounge, to accompany the rooftop pool and views of the steps-away Isla Verde beach. At Mist (pictured) you can sip cocktails and eat Island-Italian-Spanish fusion tapas (made from locally grown ingredients) from the spacious pillowed and cushioned couches that truly deserve the word “lounge.”
If you’d rather consume your food by table and chair, the hotel also has a new restaurant, Zest. Zest, like the neon-blue-lit hotel that contains it, is uniquely decorated, with such design elements as a waterfall by the bar and a simulation of the surface of the ocean on the ceiling. The food, too, is unique: Diverse dishes are locally and sustainably-sourced and scent-infused to take your taste experience to the next level.
Surfcomber The totally renovated and rebranded Surfcomber (now a Kimpton Hotel) opened yesterday on Collins Avenue. The 186-room oceanfront hotel has a playful vibe, stylish accommodations, and Kimpton’s personalized service and amenities. The pool deck and bevy of cabanas look inviting, as do the opening rates from only $149/night. www.surfcomber.com
Shelborne South Beach This Art Deco mainstay which spent the last two years under renovation reopened Wednesday. The look is retro glam, the vibe is sexy. The hotel’s own exhibition “Art of Night” features intimate celebrity images from nightlife photographer Seth Browarnik, but the catwalk runway connecting the two beachfront pool decks seems like the ultimate stage for eye candy. Opening rates here start from $159/night. Note: not all rooms have been renovated so be sure to request one. www.shelborne.com

The Luxury Hugging the white-sand shores of tiny Nevis, the historic Nisbet Plantation Beach Club was built in 1778. Today, 36 rooms and suites are found in cheery yellow cottages located across the property, which includes a swimming pool, croquet lawn and tennis courts, award-winning spa, and three restaurants. For a week-long romantic indulgence, the inn’s Double Rewards package allows guests to stay for seven nights and pay for five, while throwing in a three-course dinner for two at the Great House (the original main building of the plantation), round-trip airport transfers, daily breakfast for two, and a two-hour guided rain forest hike.
The Value From October 8 through December 19, the seven-night package starts at $208/night. With all the extras, the offer represents a 33 percent savings.
The Catch Hurricane season lasts through November, so it’s a good idea to book trip insurance. If a storm affects your stay, the resort does have a policy of adjusting arrival/departure dates or issuing credits for a future stay but not refunds.
