ESPA is a haven of tranquility from its secluded terrace pool to customized treatments with organic products. The kids can spend the day under certified professional supervision in the children's program. Gourmet dining includes the option of a private dinner for 2 on the beach.
The 3 restaurants serve authentic Abruzzi cuisine, delectable sushi, and private vintage wines from around the world. Guests complement the staff on the superb service, from delivering poolside smoothies to 24-hour room service. Even the valet parking is available 24 hours.
If you can tear yourself away from the pools and beach, the shopping in Bar Harbour, about 4 miles east, can be addictive. The serene 12th-century cloisters and museum of the Ancient Spanish Monastery, bought by W. R. Hearst and reassembled stone by stone, are a 2-mile drive.
