Casa Cat Ba
Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
With just five rooms, Casa Cat Ba is a nifty little hideaway. All guests are treated just the same - with an ocean-view balcony, a kaleidoscopic breakfast of taste-bud-bamboozling local fare and intimate kayak tours in and around the island, that is. It's one of those hotels that's almost painfully idyllic, as beautiful inside as it is out - a pocket of stylish, bohemian design (think luxe beanbags and macramé wall hangings) with a sugary-fine beach on one side, the laid-back village of Holbox on the other and a thicket of emerald-green wilderness to explore beyond.
