So how do you travel? If luxury travel is your style, the Virgin Islands are your dream destination. This rich tropical paradise is a favorite among the wealthy. In fact, among the wealthiest 1 percent and 5 percent of travelers, the Caribbean ranks as the second top travel destination, after Europe, according to a report published by Resonance Consultancy.
Check out our recommendations for the most luxurious hotspots of the Virgin Islands, and start planning your next trip now:
Most exquisite beach experience
Craving luxury? Many opt for St. John, often referred to as the “Beverly Hills of the Caribbean.”
-Enjoy St. John’s Caneel Bay, discovered by Laurance Rockefeller in the early 1950s while sailing during a family cruise. The Caneel Bay Beach boasts gorgeous views, pristine beaches, delightful sunsets, and bluest crystal clear water. Sit back and dine and sip cocktails at the outdoor restaurant. Note: Caneel Bay is accessible only by private boat (which in our opinion, just adds to the intoxicating exclusivity).
Most luxurious dining
From dining to cocktails to nightlife, the Virgin Islands offer a wealth of fantastic options:
–Turtle Bay Estate House of Caneel Bay Resort, Caneel Bay, St. John. Be sure to dine here (Sundays only!) for gourmet cuisine and a classy experience. Opt for cocktails on the patio to take in views of the lovely gardens and building.
-Experience fine dining in a romantic setting against a breathtaking backdrop when you visit Oceana of St. Thomas. Watch the sunset and take in scenic views of the St. Thomas harbor. Sip wine while enjoying a delightful ambiance in a building that used to be the Russian embassy.
Richest hotel experience
When you need to get away in style, there’s no better place than Virgin Gorda:
–Biras Creek Resort, Virgin Gorda, is stationed in a splendid fortress overlooking stunning views. Ditch TV and get in the legit experience – soaking up nature’s finest.
-Relax in Rosewood Little Dix Bay of Virgin Gorda and indulge in the best spa in the Virgin Islands. For 50 years, this 494-acre resort has been delivering quality service and luxury to travelers who love the finer things.
