Located on two miles of beach, bordering the Caribbean Sea, StolenTime by Rendezvous is the only hotel on Malabar Beach, enhancing the feeling of having your own private space.
The 100-room hotel offers a variety of room types including spacious poolside suites, terrace suites facing the beach or overlooking the tropical garden, or my favorite, a charming beachfront cabana, styled a bit older compared to the modern luxurious poolside suites.
