For a full-service resort, Pink Sands, Harbour Island's original fashionable hotel, owned by record producer Chris Blackwell, is a good choice. The cottages, created by Biba designer Barbara Hulanicki, are large and full of character, painted in gingerbread-house pinks, yellows and sky-blues. Interiors are equally eclectically coloured. In the main restaurant and bar, outsize Indonesian teak beds are loaded with plump Indian cushions and mirror-work textiles while the open-air design is punctuated by carved Balinese door frames. Despite a decent-sized pool, most guests hang out on the beach.
