2017 Best Resort Hotel, Martha's Vineyard

The Winnetu Oceanside Resort

The Winnetu is an island classic for a reason: It’s family-friendly (with evening s’mores and a life-size chess board) and ultra-convenient (overlooking one of New England’s best beaches), yet removed enough from the hustle and bustle to be relaxing. And the best has recently gotten even better, thanks to a renovation that left the guest rooms—which range from one-bedroom suites to five-bedroom cottages—with notable new polish.
