How it Ranks: Caneel Bay Resort ranks #1 out of 53 U.S. Virgin Islands Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the Caribbean.

Our Take: Caneel Bay Resort appeals to travelers seeking an isolated enclave where they can disconnect from the outside world. With no Internet access, no business center and no digital disturbances to steer you away from total relaxation, you can enjoy the resort's tranquil setting within the Virgin Islands National Park on St. John's northeastern edge, surrounded by 170 acres of palm trees and pristine beaches. In fact, previous visitors highlight the resort's tranquility as its greatest asset. As soon as you arrive, you're greeted with a complimentary bottle of island rum before being shown to your room, adorned with Caribbean stone, plush robes and lavish Lady Primrose bath products. Caneel Bay's grounds boast a variety of activities to choose from, including tennis, yoga and sunset cruises. To cap off your relaxing day, treat your taste buds to the zesty cuisine served at the resort's five dining establishments. Members of the Leaders Club can earn complimentary nights by staying at this Leading Hotels of the World property.
