Looking for luxury on your next trip away? What better than the best five star hotels in the Caribbean to inspire you.
Necker Island, Sandy Lane, Jade Mountain, are all hotels that I have dreamed of staying in. In fact I had cocktails in Sandy Lane some years ago, before sheepishly walking back to my four-star hotel next door! Did you know that Tropical Sky feature these and many more five star hotels in the Caribbean on their website?
From Mexico to Mustique, you name it, they have it! If you fancy visiting two different Caribbean islands in the one trip, they can arrange that too, or if there is a particular Caribbean island or hotel that you are interested in, call one of their Caribbean specialists and they will source it for you. I have listed just five of the best five star hotels in the Caribbean below, but visit the Tropical Sky website and you will see many more.
Sandy Lane, Barbados:
Even the word Barbados conjures up stunning images in my mind, add a stay in Sandy Lane and you have one of the world’s best holiday locations. I loved my holiday in Barbados and I combined it with a trip to the Grenadines. We spent a day visiting deserted beaches on a catamaran – it was an incredible experience. However, if you are fortunate to be staying in Sandy Lane, you may not want to leave…
Sandy Lane is one of the Leading Hotels of the World and also happens to be Irish owned. Located on Barbados’s exclusive West Coast, it offers luxurious accommodation, fine dining with first-class service, three golf courses and stunning sea views.
If you can manage to tear yourself from the 7,500 square foot swimming pool with cascading waterfall, the white sandy beach that it is famous for is right on your doorstep. As well as deluxe rooms for couples, Sandy Lane is renowned for its private villas which are a great choice for groups or large families.
Jade Mountain Hotel, St. Lucia:
Known as one of the most romantic Caribbean islands, St. Lucia combines palm-fringed beaches with tropical rainforests, the Caribbean Sea with the Atlantic Ocean, and adventure with pure relaxation. The iconic twin peaks of the Pitons are practically begging to be climbed. The larger of the two, Gros Piton is the easier to climb, and is worth the six-hour round trip if you like a bit of adventure.
One of St. Lucia’s best hotels, Jade Mountain, is the perfect place to relax after your climb. It is located on a hilltop overlooking the Pitons and the Caribbean Sea. This is a nature lover’s paradise. Their rooms, or sanctuaries as they like to call them, have a private infinity pool, no TV and even WiFi is only available if requested.
If escapism, adventure, romance and luxury are what you seek – look no further.
Curtain Bluff, Antigua:
Located in the northern Caribbean, Antigua boasts year-round sunshine and has a surprising Mediterranean feel. As well as stunning white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, there is an abundance of history and cultural heritage sites to be explored.
Don’t miss a day trip to its pretty capital, St. John’s, and the Sunday evening party at Shirley Heights – its calypso rhythms have been celebrated for more than 25 years.
Flanked by two beaches, Curtain Bluff is located on the southwest coast of Antigua with sublime sea views from every angle. Relax in a hammock on Surf Beach or enjoy the many water sports that are included in the cost of your stay, on Bay Beach.
Curtain Bluff is a luxury all-inclusive resort so as well as waters ports and activities, meals and drinks are included too! Featured in culinary magazines around the world, Curtain Bluff is famous for it’s top-class cuisine and impressive wine cellar.
Spice Island, Grenada:
This tiny island in the heart of the Caribbean Sea is just 22 miles long, yet has over 45 beaches! It offers unspoilt beauty both on the coast and in its rainforests and waterfalls. Known as the ‘Island of Spice’, Grenada is equally famous for being a diver’s paradise, as it is home to the largest shipwreck dive site in the Caribbean.
Located on one of the Caribbean’s, if not the world’s, best beaches, Grand Anse beach, the Spice Island Beach Resort Hotel is one of the Caribbean’s hidden gems. It offers understated luxury with contemporary style, in a relaxed atmosphere. As this is an all-inclusive resort, meals and drinks are included in the cost of your stay.
With only 64 luxury beachfront suites, you can expect a personalised service, where the staff will know you by name. Many suites have private plunge pools, outdoor dining terraces and four-poster canopy beds. A complimentary, stocked in-room mini-bar is also part of the all-inclusive arrangement.
Spice Island Beach Resort is a 100% smoke-free environment, even e-cigarette smoking is prohibited in guest rooms and all public areas. Spice Island Beach Resort has been ranked number one resort in the Caribbean by TripAdvisor reviewers and Prince Charles and Camilla stayed there in 2019 – need I say more?
Necker Island, British Virgin Islands:
I couldn’t write a post about the best five star hotels in the Caribbean without including Necker Island – although I’m not so sure describing it as a five-star hotel does it justice! Necker Island is probably the most luxurious place to stay in the Caribbean. Richard Branson’s private island is famous for its exclusive location and celebrity guests.
You can opt to stay on your own, or if you really want to splash out, you can book the whole island for an exclusive party – maximum 30 guests. There is a luxury spa on the island and a host of water sports available. With a range of dining options, including a floating sushi bar and private candlelit dinners, this really is a holiday destination like no other.
I hope this post will help you if you book one of the best five star hotels in the Caribbean. If you wish to add on extra nights or combine a stay in the Caribbean with a visit to the USA, contact Tropical Sky and they will be able to tailor-make a trip to suit you.
