How it Ranks: The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas ranks #2 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 U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in U.S. Virgin Islands.

Our Take: This high-end retreat — overlooking Great Bay on St. Thomas' eastern coast — offers a wide array of high-end amenities. Each of the Ritz's bright, canary-colored guest rooms features a private balcony or terrace, a 32-inch HD TV, high-speed Internet access and a fully equipped refreshment cabinet. Despite the lavish accommodations (and top-notch service), recent guests claim this Ritz-Carlton outpost's best feature is its enviable location. Outdoor pursuits range from a round of tennis to hitting the links on a George and Tom Fazio-designed off-site golf course, located just 15 minutes by car from the resort. Should you prefer to stay on the resort's grounds, imbibe in a soothing treatment at the property's Mediterranean-style spa or lounge by the 125-foot free-form infinity pool (one of several swim spots found at the Ritz-Carlton). Afterwards, savor an authentic Caribbean, American or seafood-centric meal at one of the four oceanfront dining venues. If you're worried about breaking the bank, you can relax knowing that Marriott Rewards points can help curb costs.
