Once the Frank Saddlery in the 1800s, the 99-room Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel walks with one cowboy boot steeped in its past (a front desk made of stretched leather; Wild West pictures and other accents tastefully dot additional areas of the hotel) and another focused on class (rooms have 12-foot ceilings, four-poster beds and bath butlers to draw your water). And the sense of place felt in the details isn’t limited to the rooms. The Mokara Spa, a two-story, 17,000-square-foot oasis, is awash in earthy tones and polished woods. Ostra, the hotel’s award-winning restaurant, wins you over with a modern, marine blue-speckled dining room that goes perfectly with the menu of locally farmed chicken and sustainable seafood.
