LALUNA IS FOR LOVERS BOX OF CHOCOLATES DIDN’T IMPRESS ON VALENTINE’S DAY? TRY THIS GETAWAY

A Caribbean cottage with private plunge pool just steps from the gently lapping surf — sounds like a Northerner’s February daydream. The new LaLuna Resort in Grenada enters the wish-fulfillment business by opening 16 one and two-bedroom cottages on the Spice Island. Verandas with sea views and bathrooms partly exposed to the outdoors appeal to your inner sybarite, while modem hookups allow you to stay in touch with technology. Dinner is a destination in itself at this intimate hideaway: The chic restaurant combines Caribbean ingredients with Mediterranean style. High season room rates start at $430.
