A number of new properties and recent renovations in the Caribbean offer great options for winter getaways. With winter in full swing, it’s a great time to think about booking a stay at one of these fantastic Caribbean resorts.
FOUR SEASONS Nevis
This Four Seasons was considered one of the region's best resorts until Hurricane Omar struck in October 2008, shutting it down for two years. But the damage has been fixed, and millions have been spent on a beautiful renovation that includes new rooms, new landscaping and new menus for three out of the four restaurants. This resort offers everything you expect from a Four Seasons, including a Robert Trent Jones II golf course, tennis courts, scuba diving, children’s activities and world-class service.
JUMBY BAY Antigua
A Caribbean classic set on a 300-acre private island off the northeastern coast of Antigua, Jumby Bay has reopened after an extensive $28 million renovation. The Rosewood Resort property has 40 rooms, 16 villas and 6 stunning rental properties — all decorated impeccably. Guests enjoy their choice of three great beaches and a number of water sports and other activities for children. This small, exclusive resort offers privacy and a VIP experience that most resorts simply cannot match.
ST. REGIS Puerto Rico
Starwood Hotels & Resorts' brand, St. Regis, has debuted in the Caribbean with The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort — an eco-friendly paradise. The 483-acre property is located on a former coconut plantation, between the El Yunque rainforest and the Espiritu Santo River, and features its own private bird sanctuary with Audubon's Gold Signature Sanctuary certification. The resort offers 139 guest rooms, including 35 suites with private terraces, as well as 25 private St. Regis Estate Homes. Guests can enjoy the 10,000 sq ft Reméde Spa, a Robert Trent Jones Jr. golf course, full-size beachfront swimming pool, Jean-Georges dining, and activities including kayaking, snorkeling, windsurfing and fishing.
TUCKER POINT Bermuda
Located on 200 acres of waterfront property, Tucker Point is the first all-new property on Bermuda in almost 40 years. Its 88 rooms and suites are decorated in classic British seaside style with a hint of colonial sophistication. A quick 90-minute flight from most East Coast cities, Bermuda is a great choice for a weekend trip. Guests enjoy the exclusive Tucker’s Point Golf, Beach & Tennis Club, four swimming pools, a croquet court, a spa and a myriad of watersports.
