The Giri Residence is a truly lovely all suite, boutique hotel with just 5 rooms. It's like a little bit of Miami without the attitude and the posing. The Danish owner Lars, and his staff Paolo and Joel could not be more helpful, insisting you treat the hotel as your home. The hotel is an old school in a small village in the North East of the island, which is wild and unspoilt with pretty, sandy beaches. One can see why the hippy communities came in the 60's and stayed.
The suites in the hotel are all based around a central dining and relaxation area - with a long, shared dining table and sofas. The food menu is not huge but Joel offered to cook anything we wanted for dinners if we let him know in the morning so you can't really pick holes in that! There were specials on each day and the cooking was great - big portions of sea bass, lamb confit or steak. There's a definite family vibe to the shared living space and plenty of lounging areas in the courtyard and around the pool. The pool is long, but narrow and in October freezing! There is a lovely inside spa area with a jacuzzi, which becomes a private spa when you book a massage. We had read that the weather would still be good in October but unfortunately it rained for most of our stay. We'll definitely be back to the Giri when we can be sure of sun.
