More Caribbean Luxury


 

Thanks be to God we made it to April 2021, and all the Stress/Insecurity we feel towards our everyday controlled life is still Real.  Surely . . . soon & very soon Covid19 will be a thing of the past, we will all have our vaccine passports (vaccine card) and ready to Rumble. You will want & need some Caribbean Luxury for sure, & You are so worth it all.

The best Resorts are more than just rooms, pools and sand. They use the art of luxury to create something more. Something meaningful. While the term “resort” certainly has its share of definitions in the Caribbean a great one should, at its core, offer completeness. That means offering guests the things they need, the things they want, and the things they never even considered - all delivered with an overwhelming sense of luxury. These are some of the best Caribbean resorts, the places where luxury, in all its forms, is a way of life.  See some locations on the map.

Four Seasons Resort Nevis: This wonderful hotel has always been one of the region’s pioneers when it comes to incorporating the local community and the local environment into its operations, and that hasn’t changed. It’s long had a commitment to being authentically Nevisian, to having a sense of place, to having a sense of people.

Half Moon: For more than 60 years this 400-acre Montego Bay hotel has endured as one of Jamaica’s finest, delivering a raft of exceptional features that include its own stables; shopping village; 13 tennis courts; and a championship golf course – not to mention 31 serviced villas and almost 200 elegant rooms.  This Rock Resort in Montego Bay is the ultimate timeless Caribbean hotel. It’s tasteful, it’s refined but also free from pretentiousness. And while it’s an expansive property that offers everything from horseback riding to golf, the true joy is relaxing in the still waters of Half Moon Bay in front of the West Cottages.

The Shore Club, Turks and Caicos: South Beach meets the Old Caribbean at this relatively new addition to Providenciales, with some of the most extraordinary (and largest) rooms in the region and a perch on the effectively undiscovered Long Bay Beach, one of the Caribbean’s best-kept secrets.

Jade Mountain, Saint Lucia: It’s equal parts luxury resort and portal to another universe. The rooms aren’t rooms — they’re sanctuaries. And while it’s truly otherworldly, you never forget that you’re in Saint Lucia. It’s the sort of place where you’ll never want to leave your room — and you never need to.

Jumby Bay Island, Antigua: Antigua and Barbuda’s flagship private-island destination has seen its levels of luxury surge since being taken over by the Oetker Collection (you may know them from the Eden Rock in St Barth). Long a celebrity favorite, it’s still an indulgent, glamorous Caribbean escape.  This private-island retreat is Antigua’s celebrity magnet. Just 40 suites and a collection of villas and residential homes, it’s quiet, intimate and wonderfully exclusive. It’s just a very short boat ride from the coast of Antigua.

Eden Roc at Cap Cana, Dominican Republic: The Dominican Republic’s leading luxury resort is also a Relais & Chateaux property, meaning hard-to-beat culinary offerings and a focus on sincere luxury. And did I mention the plunge pools?

Amanyara, Turks and Caicos:  Bali meets the Atlantic at this luxurious, exotic hotel at the far end of Providenciales. Here, luxury is found in remoteness. It’s a place for retreats in every sense, no matter which of the 38 “pavilions” you’re staying in. It’s set out on the edge of Providenciales, far from Grace Bay Beach, in its own world. Here, it’s all about heightened privacy, indulgent seclusion and an Eastern sensibility, with gorgeously designed “pavilions.” But it’s also very much true to the Turks and Caicos experience.

Cap Maison, Saint Lucia: We’ve long been in love with this hotel at the northern tip of Saint Lucia, particularly for its extremely creative food and beverage program, from its on-site Naked Fisherman beach bar to its delectable, romantic Cliff at Cap restaurant. It’s grand luxury, Saint Lucian style.

Pink Sands Club, St Vincent and the Grenadines:  This relatively new resort, recently taken over by Mandarin Oriental, helped put Canouan (and the Grenadines) on the map as a luxury destination, with a colorful design and a serene beach.

Calabash, Grenada: The Spice Isle’s best place to stay is a lovely, warm boutique resort set on one of the island’s most tranquil stretches of beach. It’s a friendly, family-run place that marries Grenadian hospitality with luxurious charm.

Tortuga Bay, Dominican Republic: This recently-transformed boutique resort in Punta Cana continues to set a standard for relaxed Caribbean luxury, without forgetting its roots as the scene of Oscar de la Renta’s first and only Caribbean hotel interiors.

Cap Juleca, Anguilla:  The centerpiece of this 69-room property is Maundays Bay, a simply miraculous stretch of beach in Anguilla. And this resort lives up to its world-class reputation. The Moroccan-style property makes for about as good of a beach vacation as you can find anywhere on earth.

Now, you do have so many Good reasons to plan the Luxury Caribbean Vacation that you have always dreamed about. Even if it means not spending your Stimmy coins on that new seasonal wardrobe.
