#1 Reethi Faru Resort
As the first hotel to open on St. Barts, Eden Rock has been welcoming sun-seeking vacationers for more than 60 years. Splurge on a specialty villa and you’ll have access to such extras as a private art gallery (in the Villa Nina) or a recording studio (in the Rockstar Villa).
#2 Jumby Bay Island
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.
#3 Jamaica Inn
Jamaica Inn seeks to provide a home-away-from-home experience, and its guests believe it succeeds in doing so. Its air-conditioned suites, cottages, bungalows and villas. What’s more, you’ll receive free afternoon tea and light snacks, as well as evening hot and cold hors d’oeuvres.
#4 Baoase Luxury Resort
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. 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.
#5 Jade Mountain
ade 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.
