It has all the trappings of a tropical idyll, with yoga and infinity pools a go-go, but it’s the food that’s tempting travellers to this just-opened beach resort right on the water at secluded Merrywing Bay. Think global menus, the freshest seafood and wood-fired pizza on the beach. thereefbycuisinart.com
