The Villa, Casa Casuarina
Previously the residence of the late Italian fashion designer extraordinaire, this flamboyant mansion has been turned into a boutique hotel. With only ten suites available, the space is mostly used as a wedding venue or honeymoon giveaway. But for the right price, the lowest being nearly $800, you can stay in one of three different kind of luxury suites. All are adorned with extravagant décor and are the size of small apartments. Like most hotels, The Villa has a restaurant and offers spa services, but the experience is much more intimate and the restaurant has even been converted from the average dining room. Though it may be small for a hotel, compared to the more common 75 floor options, Casa Casuarina is larger than life and worth the splurge.
