What is better than turquoise ocean water, white sand beaches, 5-star hotels and restaurants, lively nightlife, water sports and casinos? If you are looking for luxury, these three paradise locations do not come up short. Each is beautiful and unique in its own way and each one more lavish than the last. These ideal holiday destinations in the Caribbean will not disappoint.
If extravagance and indulgence are a part of your vocabulary, then the island of St. Lucia will have no problems accommodating your every want and need for an amazing holiday. From outdoor adventures to deluxe spas, St. Lucia can guarantee a holiday that you will never forget.
First, if you are looking for accommodations, The BodyHoliday hotel is one of the best hotels on the islands. Rated at 5 stars, this hotel includes a wellness centre that has been voted one of the best spa resorts in the Caribbean. This all-inclusive hotel has been specifically designed to ensure that you leave feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and recharged before returning home. This private retreat has anything from archery to pilates along with Reiki treatments.
If you are coming to the Caribbean for delicious food, The BodyHoliday is home to one of the top 60 restaurants in the world, Tao.
While on holiday in St. Lucia you will want to check out the acres and acres of rainforest. Take a hike through the overgrown trees, some with ferns that are as large as a house. Encounter wild orchids, waterfalls and many of the rainforest’s animals.
If you are chartering a yacht, there are beautiful anchorages along the Caribbean from Marigot Bay to the volcanic peaks of The Pitons. The Pitons are a must-see of St. Lucia. So if you are anchoring there, don’t look away. This is the most photographed site in the Caribbean and almost every photo can be different. The colours are transformed by the sun; from pink and violet to green and dark indigo surrounded by the night’s stars.
Be sure to hit up the Grenadines for snorkelling and scuba diving.
If you have decided that you want to spend your holiday in St. Martin instead, you might consider the Belmond La Samanna boutique resort. This fabled hotel is ranked among the best in the region. Located in the French West Indies, this resort includes the only pilates studio in the Caribbean, tranquil indoor/outdoor spa, upscale dining, an advanced fitness centre and one of the most distinguished wine cellars. If you are looking for a lush holiday, St. Martin just might be the place for you.
St. Martin isn’t just about luxury; you can also find your array of activities. From each end of the island, you can enjoy delicious Caribbean cuisine, breath taking beaches, and a paradise of duty-free shopping.
If you are searching for lively bars and good restaurants, Grand Case Bay has what you are looking for.
For a bit of adventure, head to Creole Rock where the snorkelling is splendid in the coral reef. Or Orient Bay for white sandy beaches and a plethora of water sports such as wind surfing, kite surfing, kayaking, nude beaches and nightlife, including casinos.
Last on our list, but certainly not least, is St. Vincent. Located at the southern tip of St. Vincent and the Grenadines is the luxurious Palm Island Resort. This resort is located on its own unique, reserved island with the greatest amount of privacy and seclusion.
Here you can relax and get away from the world because each room is television and phone free. Choose among our five white sand beaches, hiking, tennis, golf or taking a dip in our pool and enjoy the perfect getaway.
St. Vincent is perfect for yachting holidays. With natural anchorages, yachtsmen and divers from around the world are drawn to this strand of pristine Caribbean islands. Dive and discover the rainbow-coloured reefs and explore the historical shipwrecks.
Choosing between these three gorgeous islands and resorts could prove to be a challenge, but regardless of your decision you can guarantee a wonderful, relaxing holiday combined with adventure, luxury and top restaurants.
