    Free WiFi

    Rising above its sister property, Anse Chastanet, Jade Mountain offers high-rise vistas of The Pitons, with architecture that draws on St. Lucia's natural beauty. Each of its "sanctuaries" boasts only three walls (the space where the fourth wall should be is completely open), 15-foot ceilings and furnishings crafted from tropical wood. Some suites also feature infinity pools that create the illusion of a limitless space between you, the Caribbean Sea and The Pitons. However, recent guests warned that modern conveniences like TVs and telephones are not available in any accommodations. Additionally, some said that although the open wall yields majestic views, it also means you're up close and personal with some of the island's high-flying wildlife and the occasional rainstorm. In addition to the panoramic views, Jade Mountain touts a varied list of island sports, including snorkeling in the Anse Chastanet bay, sunset sailing on the resort yacht and scuba diving with experts from the on-site PADI dive center. As the site of the finale of the 14th season of "The Bachelor," Jade Mountain knows how to create a romantic atmosphere. Couples can arrange for an in-room massage with the Kai en Ciel Spa or a private dinner on the Celestial Terrace. For other meals, there's the Jade Mountain Club helmed by James Beard Award-winning chef Allen Susser.

    Ladera Resort

    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Prompting guests to appreciate their magnificent surroundings, the 37 suites at St. Lucia's adults-only Ladera Resort all boast an open wall – like a patio, minus the door – facing the dramatic Pitons and the Caribbean Sea. (Though this absent fourth wall takes luxury to the next level, don't be surprised if you wind up sharing your room with a harmless lizard or two.) Accommodations also boast private plunge pools (some with waterfalls and swings), plus free Wi-Fi access, minibars, pillow-top mattresses and kits with binoculars, star charts, slippers and eye masks. Because Ladera sits on a ridge at 1,100 feet, the resort isn't located directly on a beach. However, Ladera does provide complimentary shuttle service to Sugar Beach on the western side of the island. Ladera also offers an abundance of fee-based activities, ranging from a bartending class to a guided Saturday market tour to a sailing and snorkeling daytrip to Marigot Bay. To experience the mountains in a more restful setting, arrange for an outdoor massage at The Spa at Ladera. Previous visitors said you should also treat yourself to the field-to-fork eats at the resort's restaurant, Dasheene. All suite rates cover daily breakfast; those who plan on mostly dining on-site for lunch and dinner can purchase a partial or all-inclusive meal plan.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 176 reviewsTripAdvisor (176)
    Free WiFi

    Located on the southern tip of St. Kitts, this Park Hyatt resort houses 126 modern rooms and suites. Former visitors lauded the beautiful bayfront location and the well-maintained facilities. The neutrally decorated accommodations include LCD TVs, espresso machines, safes, spa-inspired bathrooms and private terraces. However, previous guests warned that the mattresses are on the firm side. Outside the rooms, travelers can take advantage of various on-site perks, including two pools, a spa that offers yoga and meditation classes, and a private beach with views of the Caribbean Sea and neighboring Nevis island. Guests also have access to complimentary nonmotorized water sports equipment, and families will appreciate the on-site kids club, with morning, afternoon and seasonal evening hours. Meanwhile, the three on-site restaurants dish out everything from local to international cuisine, though past patrons warned that all meals here are pricey. World of Hyatt members can offset costs by cashing in rewards points at this Hyatt property.

    This elegant Ritz-Carlton property sits on an eco-friendly reserve on Puerto Rico's northern shore and offers access to a mile of sandy shoreline and an 11-mile nature trail. While adults are teeing off on the three stunning 18-hole golf courses or indulging in a spa treatment amid the leafy canopy, kids can get acquainted with fellow resortgoers while participating in supervised Ambassadors of the Environment activities. Meanwhile, each of the resort's opulent guest rooms and suites boasts a balcony, a deep soaking tub and an outdoor shower. And the buck doesn't stop there. The waterfront COA restaurant offers locally inspired cuisine, including various dishes made in a custom wood-burning oven. Or, visitors can savor grilled meats and seafood at Encanto Beach Club Bar and Grill or fresh sushi, ceviche and tapas at Positivo Sand Bar. Overall, past guests praised the resort's cuisine and accommodations, although several warned that everything, from the dishes to the spa treatments to the room rates, is expensive. However, the property's daily resort fee covers perks like in-room Wi-Fi access and valet parking. Keep in mind that Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points by choosing to stay here.

    Free Breakfast

    If you're seeking over-the-top luxury on Antigua, look no further than Jumby Bay Island. For a pretty penny, you can bask on this small private islet 2 miles off the northeast coast of Antigua and soak up the rays on its powdery white sands. Despite its cost, recent guests thought their money was well-spent: With spectacular vistas and top-notch service, visitors had very few complaints. As for digs, Jumby Bay's Rondavel rooms reside in octagonal cottages, and each features a four-poster bed, a private courtyard, a wraparound terrace and an outdoor shower. If you can shell out some additional coin for a private villa (read: estate), you'll get your own pool and direct beach access. The resort itself offers land and water sports, three pools, a tennis club and The Jumby Bay Spa. When hunger sets in, you'll have your pick of three sit-down dining venues, which serve everything from casual poolside fare to Italian-inspired dishes to upscale Caribbean cuisine. A grab-and-go beach shack with West Indian-style street snacks (think: fresh seafood and wraps) is available as well. All meals, snacks and beverages are covered by the resort's all-inclusive room rates.

    Stretching across 8 acres of Grenada's prized Grand Anse Beach, Spice Island Beach Resort is a family-run boutique resort. Surrounded by lemon, almond and sea grape trees, each suite features a patio, balcony or terrace, plus a minibar, bathrobes and slippers, Frette linens and Molton Brown toiletries. Recent guests agree that the Seagrape Beach Suites are worth the splurge thanks to their whirlpool tubs with ocean views, private patios and gardens, chaise lounge chairs and double hammock sets. Just in case hammock-lounging didn't fill your relaxation quota, the in-house Janissa's Spa provides body polishes and massages. And encouraging guests to take advantage of its primo beachside location, Spice Island's all-inclusive room rates cover snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, tennis, cycling and green fees at a local golf course. When hunger strikes, head to Oliver's Restaurant, which serves up a Creole-inspired menu accompanied by live music, or the Sea and Surf Terrace & Bar for gourmet international dishes with a Caribbean twist. Although a few past diners desired more on-site dining options, most enjoyed their meals at both eateries.

    The key to COMO Parrot Cay is personalization: Located on a private Turks and Caicos island northeast of Providenciales, this boutique resort strives to embody the perfect beach vacation for every taste, with various experiences that include customized excursions and intimate dinners. Head to the COMO Shambhala Retreat to enjoy a private yoga class or a hot river stone massage. For a more active experience, borrow kayaks or snorkeling gear to use at your leisure. Even dining is up to you: Eat in your villa, in one of two restaurants or on the beach. Guests love COMO Parrot Cay's food, which is always fresh, organic (when possible) and Caribbean-inspired. However, some caution that the on-site cuisine is expensive. After dinner, retire to one of 72 guest rooms, suites, villas or houses, which are all bathed with natural light and adorned with four-poster beds (draped in white voile), minibars and private verandas or sun decks.

    Set on 25 acres of verdant gardens in southwestern Anguilla, Malliouhana features spacious rooms and suites, plus a host of amenities. Standard accommodations at this Auberge outpost start at 775 square feet and include marble bathrooms, four-poster beds and private patios or terraces with garden or ocean views. After a restful night's sleep, take your pick between two infinity-edge pools or a stretch of Meads Bay sand that offers free nonmotorized water sports equipment like sailboats, paddleboards and kayaks. Additional active pursuits include complimentary yoga classes and tennis. When it's time to bid adieu to another sunny day, grab drinks and tapas at Bar Soleil or enjoy more substantial Mediterranean-inspired fare at Cafe Celeste. Both eateries earn rave reviews from diners, although a few visitors say the service at the restaurants and throughout the property is hit or miss.

    Guests consistently laud Sandy Lane for its impressive grounds, luxurious amenities and accommodating staff. Welcoming Barbados visitors since 1961, Sandy Lane's spacious rooms, suites, penthouses and villa boast elegant furnishings, marble bathrooms with dual vanities, desks and balconies or patios with views of verdant gardens or the Caribbean Sea. And the grandeur doesn't stop there. This Leading Hotels of the World outpost also features lavish recreational facilities, including three golf courses and a 47,000-square-foot spa. (Recent guests raved about the opulent spa treatments and tasty dishes served at The Spa Café.) Though the golf courses and spa are no doubt impressive, don't forget to carve out some lounging time on Sandy Lane Beach, where the resort provides cold towels, sorbets, fresh fruit and Evian mists. Whether your day was spent relaxing by the sea (or the 7,500-square-foot pool) or swinging on the greens, previous visitors suggest watching the sun set at one of the four on-site eateries. Though some former patrons bemoaned the property's underwhelming afternoon tea service, many praised the delectable (albeit pricey) cuisine. However, Leaders Club members receive complimentary perks, such as daily breakfast for two, during their stays.

    At The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, you might have a hard time deciding whether to start along the resort's coral sands or inside your comfy lodgings. Recent visitors praised the guest rooms, which are outfitted with private balconies or terraces, soaking tubs, Asprey toiletries and minifridges. However, some lamented the pricey daily resort fee. You can reserve a tee time at the nine-hole, Greg Norman-designed golf course, schedule a treatment at the spa or make use of the resort's complimentary kayaks, rafts and snorkel gear. Or, park yourself on the sand. The resort offers a prime Cayman Islands location, extending 144 acres across the Caribbean to the North Sound, facing Seven Mile Beach's shoreline. When you're ready to refuel, head to Blue by Eric Ripert, or try one of the property's five other restaurants or bars. What's more, this Ritz-Carlton outpost falls under the Marriott banner, meaning Marriott Bonvoy members can collect or redeem points here.

    Since it opened in 1953 a little more than 8 miles west of Montego Bay, Jamaica, the Round Hill Hotel and Villas has played host to the likes of Grace Kelly, Cole Porter and Jackie Kennedy, among other celebrities. Guests say it's the property's setting that makes this boutique resort timeless and elegant. Inside the hotel's 36 guest rooms, travelers will find furniture designed by Ralph Lauren and embellished in whites, pinks and blues, plus four-poster beds and rain showers. Round Hill's 27 villa suites boast open-air living rooms and verandas, along with two to six bedrooms and cottage housekeepers (who will cook you breakfast for an additional fee). Some villas are also home to private pools surrounded by lush foliage. Although many visitors rave about the views from their accommodations, several caution that digs here are outdated. Reviewers also give mixed feedback about the resort's service. Round Hill offers a wide selection of activities for those who want to venture outside their rooms, including tennis, water sports and spa treatments in a restored 18th-century plantation house. After a fun-filled day in the sun, guests may dine at a restaurant headed by James Beard Award-winning chef Martin Maginley or sip cocktails at one of three bars. All-inclusive packages are available for travelers who wish to enjoy all of their meals and drinks on-site.

    Luxury is the name of The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort's game. Occupying a former coconut plantation along Bahia's shoreline in northeastern Puerto Rico, this property boasts 100-foot palms and enviable beach access. Accommodations feature beamed ceilings, private terraces or balconies, minibars, butler service and Wi-Fi access (which is part of the daily resort fee). To get the lay of the land, travelers recommend venturing outside your gorgeous room or suite to check out the flowing fairways of the Robert Trent Jones Jr. Golf Course and the resort's expansive seaside pool. If you're looking for more action, a concierge can help you arrange hiking, biking and water expeditions. Or, you can unwind with a massage at the Reméde Spa. When hunger sets in, dine on bistro cuisine at the poolside Seagrapes Restaurant or fresh Caribbean fare at the Beach Club Restaurant. Guests caution that a stay here will cost a pretty penny, but thanks to St. RegisMarriott connection, Marriott Bonvoy members can use points to cover the cost of their rooms.

    This Four Seasons resort melds contemporary architecture into Anguilla's lush landscape. Sitting on the country's southwestern coast, the property boasts a varied list of recreational amenities (just in case relaxing on the two white sand beaches is too sedentary for you). Sign up for a fitness boot camp class, test your swing on one of three tennis courts or tackle the multilevel rock climbing wall. When it's time to relax those muscles, head to the waterfront spa and let the rolling waves provide the soundtrack to your massage – a resort component guests consistently rave about – or lounge by the adults-only saltwater infinity pool, which overlooks the ocean. To experience even more sea views, reserve a table at one of the four traveler-approved restaurants. Visitors also heap praise on the rooms and suites, which are outfitted with deep soaking tubs and separate walk-in showers, outdoor sun decks, Nespresso machines, free Wi-Fi access and stocked minibars, though some report minor housekeeping issues like turndown service without chocolates and unreplenished coffee supplies.

Sweethearts can dine in a private cabana on the beach (a favorite experience for many travelers) or at the poolside, oceanfront Elements restaurant. Though room rates do not cover lunches, dinners and drinks, a free breakfast buffet is available daily. Additional amenities found on-site include a fitness center, a spa, an infinity pool and a gift shop.

    A popular hideaway for honeymooners, Baoase Luxury Resort sits on the southwestern side of Curacao, less than a 9-mile drive southeast of the island's international airport. Recent guests gushed about the hotel's attentive staff and its prime location on a secluded beach. And with just 23 rooms, suites and villas (and its own private island), it's easy to see how the resort manages to create an intimate atmosphere for lodgers. Aside from the five-star customer service, past visitors were pleased with their accommodations, especially the beachfront suites, which boast private infinity pools. If you're not willing to splurge on a suite, you'll still enjoy resort or sea views from your room's balcony or patio, plus complimentary Wi-Fi access, a flat-screen TV, a minibar and a Sonos sound system, among other amenities. When you're not lounging in your digs, retreat to the resort's infinity pool, recline in a chair on the man-made beach or schedule a treatment at the spa. The beach is also where you'll find the resort's restaurant, which offers a menu of French international cuisine with an Asian twist. Although reviewers found the food delicious, they also said the prices are high.

    Like other Sandals outposts, this 17-acre Pink Gin Beach property in Grenada is an adults-only haven for vacationing couples. Expect the brand's signature all-inclusive luxury and variety of amenities, such as five pools, a spa and 10 restaurants, including a Sandals first – a steakhouse.

Standard Luxury Level rooms can be found in the South Seas area and feature mahogany furnishings, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and, in select rooms, vaulted ceilings. Meanwhile, Club Level accommodations also come with 24-hour concierge services. Splurge on Butler Level lodgings and enjoy the amenities of a Club room, plus a large balcony with a soaking tub or private plunge pool, among other comforts. When you're not relaxing in your room, sample any one of the resort's complimentary activities (think: kayaking, scuba diving, tennis and themed parties) or visit the beach club, which features an infinity pool, fire pits and views of the Caribbean Sea. Travelers love the plethora of things to do and the friendly, helpful staff, although some say beverage service at the restaurants and bars is hit or miss.

    At the Viceroy Hotels-affiliated Sugar Beach, you don't have to book a lavish villa to experience high-end amenities. Each room features a private walled garden, a plunge pool and personalized butler service. In addition to the plush accommodations, Sugar Beach boasts easy access to some of St. Lucia's best dive spots, including "Superman's Flight," a popular drift dive around the base of Petit Piton. Travelers can arrange scuba excursions, as well as island tours through the resort. If you want to experience Petit Piton but in a more laid-back atmosphere, consider indulging in a treatment at the Rainforest Spa, located at the base of the mountain. Refuel for more island exploration and relaxation at the three on-site restaurants, including the casual beachfront Bayside Restaurant and the elegant Great Room Restaurant. A third option, the Terrace Restaurant, is also available for breakfast and dinner daily. Reviewers love the property's clean accommodations, superb service and incredible cuisine, although some warn that a stay here isn't cheap and is best suited for couples (especially honeymooners).

    The protected waters of Princess Alexandra National Park on Grace Bay frame Seven Stars Resort & Spa, making it a seafarer's paradise. After swimming, snorkeling or sailing (all complimentary), guests can retire to one of Seven Stars' suites, all equipped with furnished terraces or patios, flat-screen TVs and plush robes. Suites also include full kitchens or kitchenettes with Nespresso machines and marble bathrooms with separate showers and Jacuzzis. When you get hungry, you can choose from two gourmet on-site restaurants (one of which offers a free breakfast buffet) or get poolside service at Providenciales' only heated saltwater pool. If you want to hit the spa, just drop the little ones off at the kids club. But according to guests, the resort's greatest attribute is its proximity to the airport: A 7-mile drive will bring you to Seven Stars' doorstep. The only drawback for some is the lackluster customer service.

    Sitting between Cap Cana Marina and Punta Cana International Airport along the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic, Tortuga Bay appeases travelers with luxurious amenities. Not many resorts can advertise spacious suites designed by fashion icon Oscar de la Renta. Aside from the stylish decor, accommodations also boast balconies or patios, Jacuzzis, walk-in closets, kitchenettes and flat-screen TVs. Guests rave about the tasty (albeit expensive) food served on Oscar's signature tables at Bamboo Restaurant (as well as at the five other eateries visitors have access to on-site and within the larger Puntacana Resort & Club complex). But that's not the only name you'll recognize. Avid golfers will likely jump at the chance to play one or both of Tortuga Bay's courses, designed by Tom Fazio and P.B. Dye. Meanwhile, relaxation-seekers can take advantage of the Six Senses Spa, which features a full menu of massages and body scrubs. But what travelers like most about this Leading Hotels of the World property is how different it feels from other Punta Cana resorts. Many vacationers say that the 1,500-acre reserve – maintained by the resort's ecological foundation – is a refreshing break from the overcrowded Bávaro beach hotel scene. And Leaders Club members you're in luck – this property grants perks like suite upgrades to rewards program participants.

And after a day of underwater adventures, relaxing or dining, you can retire to digs ranging from junior suites with bay views to four-bedroom beachfront residences with private pools. Each suite or villa contains at least one king-sized bed, plus an iPod docking station, free Wi-Fi access, an LCD TV and a kitchenette or kitchen. Guests say that a stay at Grace Bay Club can be pricey, but with perks like a personal concierge and views of the resort's gorgeous grounds, the cost is well worth it. Unlike some other luxury resorts, Grace Bay Club isn't just for adults: Children of all ages can participate in swimming lessons, tubing or arts and crafts sessions with Grace Bay's Kids Town program. Meanwhile, parents can get dressed up for an elegant dinner at the Infiniti Restaurant & Raw Bar or one of three other dining establishments. What's more, the boutique resort is part of The Leading Hotels of the World, meaning Leaders Club members have access to perks here.

    Wymara Resort and Villas exudes urban sensibilities and design on Grace Bay. This Turks and Caicos Islands resort's 91 guest rooms, suites and villas feature amenities like complimentary wireless internet access, electronically controlled blinds, Bose iPod docking stations and LCD TVs with DVD players. The property's modern touches don't end in the rooms: Guests praise Wymara's sleek infinity pool, as well as Stelle's tasty (albeit pricey) contemporary cuisine. For all of Wymara's high fashion, it does have a function: relaxation. Stretch out on a chaise lounge on the beach, or reserve a beach bed for the day (it comes with a fruit platter and a bottle of chilled rosé wine). To go even deeper into Zen mode, book a massage at the on-site spa or attend a yoga class – though these perks do come at an additional cost.

    Hermitage Bay, a boutique, all-inclusive resort on Antigua's secluded western shore, gives guests optimal sunset panoramas from private bungalow suites. All of the resort's 30 accommodations face the ocean and are outfitted with outdoor showers, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and hardwood floors. The organic fare served at the on-site restaurant received high marks from reviewers, but it's the staff's attention to detail that guests appreciate the most. Hermitage Bay caters specially to romantic vacationers, offering wedding and honeymoon packages, as well as a spa with the tantalizing Siddhartha Art of Love treatment, which includes aromatherapy services and exotic tea tastings. When visitors are not relaxing in their room or at the spa, they can get their hearts pumping while enjoying complimentary activities, such as scuba diving, windsurfing and kayaking.

    In 1946, a former officer in the British Royal Navy bought some land in northern Jamaica and named it GoldenEye. Hoping to recuperate from the psychological toll of World War II, he planned to spend the rest of his days relaxing and writing in the tropics. The man's name was Ian Fleming, and it was here that he dreamed up the now legendary character James Bond. Once a writer's retreat, GoldenEye is now a fully functioning boutique resort, where you can indulge in a massage at FieldSpa or go snorkeling in a 4-acre lagoon. You can stay in the Fleming Villa, where the famed author penned "Casino Royale," or in various other villas, lagoon cottages or beach huts, each with an outdoor shower, a clawfoot tub, a welcome gift of Blackwell rum and complimentary Wi-Fi access to keep both secret agents and regular guests connected to the outside world. And even a spy's got to eat: You can satiate your appetite at one of two eateries: the treehouse-style Gazebo, which serves internationally inspired dishes, and Bizot Bar, where you can savor casual Jamaican dishes poolside while sipping a classic martini – shaken, not stirred. Although many vacationers praise the property's grounds and accommodations, several say the resort's customer service and cuisine are subpar at best. Note: Some areas will be temporarily unavailable while the property undergoes renovations from early May to mid-December 2019.

    Marigot Bay Resort and Marina provides luxury-seekers the ultimate in island privacy. Because of its secluded St. Lucia location, honeymooners and families looking to reconnect while on vacation flock to this high-end resort. Although amenities may be limited in the area, visitors will find two infinity pools, a spa, a fitness center and more on-site. Vacationers also have access to a nearby beach, but it requires using the property's complimentary ferry to reach. When it's time to dine, guests have their choice of three restaurants, two swim-up pool bars and private dining in their rooms, cabanas or treehouses. Most previous travelers enjoyed the property's cuisine but suggest opting for the optional all-inclusive meal plan to save some coin. Others heaped praise on the friendly staff and beautiful accommodations. Each room and suite is set on 30 acres of leafy tropical gardens and includes one or more balconies or patios that overlook the resort grounds or bay. Every space also comes outfitted with snacks and drinks, canopy beds and fully equipped kitchens. Select accommodations even tout private plunge pools or laundry rooms.

    With just 72 rooms and suites nestled into a cove on Antigua's southern coast, Curtain Bluff emphasizes its Caribbean setting – wild nightlife and modern luxuries are secondary. Reviewers are quick to stress that this all-inclusive resort doesn't cater to the party crowd. The property offers an immersive vacation experience – guest rooms don't include televisions. Instead, you'll get floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the sea. Spend your days enjoying spa treatments (for an extra fee), playing tennis, scuba diving or napping on the beach. In the evening, dine at The Tamarind Tree or The Seagrape, or savor a glass of wine from the resort's specialized cellar. Curtain Bluff may not boast some of the conveniences of home, but visitors find the resort's other amenities outweigh those needs. Note: Curtain Bluff closes annually between mid-August and late October.
