Looking for the perfect place to stay during your vacation, especially somewhere you’ve never been before, can be a daunting task. So, here’s a list of some of our favourite luxury hotels and resorts in the Caribbean that offer that toe-curling luxury experience that you might just be looking for:
- Cap Juluca Hotel
Why don’t we start off with the vintage yet classy hotel that provides one of the best spa treatments in the entire Caribbean islands. This hotel was built in the 1980’s and has aged like fine wine. This hotel is not your standard multi-storey hotel but a collection of private villas that traipse around and face the famous Maundays Bay with its heavenly blue water. All the guest rooms face the ocean and have a complementary terrace with them- where you may just sit with a book or your lover and a glass of wine and watch the sun sink slowly into the waves. One of our favourite touches is the radios in the older rooms, each ringing out with old tunes that let you take a trip down memory lane. The service is, of course, exquisite, the staff ready to take care of your every need without ever intruding on your privacy. Swimming pools, hot tubs and private saunas can be booked for relaxing, private evenings amidst the swirling blue waters. But in case it is adventure you seek, the hotel also provides opportunities to go snorkelling and scuba diving.
- Sandy Lane
If you are looking to live the lives of the rich and famous, you needn’t go very far. Sandy Lane is one of the best Caribbean hotels where you don’t even need to lift a finger to get anything done. Although this hotel lies along the lines of a public beach in Barbados, the mahogany trees in its vicinity keep it secluded and cool. Access to non-residents is restricted so you can enjoy a quiet private time with your family or friends without getting bothered. The rooms are well lit and usher fresh sun kissed air that fills your lungs with ecstasy. At the very centre of the resort, there is a sparkling blue swimming pool, by which you can lounge in the afternoons and soak in the sun. And, if you are lucky, you might just get to meet one of your favourite celebrities who is also looking to unwind from the stress and din of daily life. The two best things about this hotel are probably its staff service and he rooms. The staff here are very humble and very helpful and are always ready to be at your service. Need a refilling of the cosmo while lounging by the pool? Don’t worry, just raise a tiny flag and your needs are fulfilled. The rooms are spacious and come equipped with state-of-the-art technology. There are small buttons on your nightstand that control the lights and curtains so you don’t even have to get up from the bed and continue to enjoy your nap without any distractions. The spa services are top notch- ranging from hot tub saunas, to massage treatments to hydrotherapy pools – treatments that slowly yet surely melt your stress away. Last but certainly not the least, the hotel also has a very well-equipped gym so you can keep up with your fitness goals.
- The Caves
While the name might signify something right out of a horror movie, in reality, the Caves are more dramatically luxurious than scary. With one of the best romantic settings in Jamaica, this resort is a hotspot for honeymooners. You get candle-lit dining in the caves themselves, an experience that you wouldn’t want to miss out on. Secluded by the sheer cliffs of Negril, the Caves consists of cabins nestled amongst trees so if you are looking for some private romance, this might just be it. The staff here is diligent and excel at their service and you need not even blink before your needs are taken care of. Here, you will learn how soothing it is to be lulled to sleep by the sound of waves. You will spend many a quiet evening reclining on the hammocks or lounging by the cliffs that overlook the sea, the wind in your hair and your partner by your side. Or you can book private saunas and hot tubs that relax your being to the very core.
