Here are some of our top spots in the Caribbean this winter.
Perfect for: Sophisticated couples and young families looking for luxurious seclusion.
When only the best will do. Newly opened after a USD $ 121 million renovation the Belmond Cap Juluca has solidified itself as the pinnacle of laid-back luxury in the Caribbean. With stunning white-washed, Moroccan style villas and chic -contemporary interiors dotted along the peaceful, picture perfect, mile-long beach. You will find elegant fine dining at Pimm’s and Cip’s, an offshoot from the Belmond’s spot at Cipriani in Venice at one end of the beach. Then an authentic Caribbean beach shack at the other end serving BBQd snacks and a killer rum punch out of a food truck. The hotel has an air of European sophistication perfectly paired with laid-back Caribbean charm. The water is clear and calm, making it perfect for snorkelling and also for little ones who are shell hunting or enjoying the kids club.
Cap Juluca is reached by an international flight to St Martin (SXM) and then a 20 min. speedboat. Alternatively, there are flights direct from Miami to Anguilla a few days a week in the season.
Perfect for: Large Multi-generational families and big groups of friends looking to celebrate together.
It’s no secret that a family holiday tends to be a whole lot easier the more space you have. Emara has the solution; with 2 sprawling villas across 8 acres of land to call your playground. Choose to rent one villa or both, for 17 en-suite bedrooms, a private beach, multiple entertainment areas and a fleet of staff at your beck and call. This is a place for relaxation and celebration! The excitement builds as you enter the driveway, 90 metres of bright purple road, which is a subtle tribute to the former owner, Prince who spent much of his life relaxing in the privacy of his estate with rotating groups of his large family and musical friends coming to visit and celebrate!
Emara is reached by international flight to Providenciales airport (PLS) and then a 20 min. drive.
Perfect for: Glamorous couples and small groups of friends looking to relax, shop, socialize, indulge and celebrate.
Jet-setters in the know have flocked to the isle since the 1960’s, glitzy restaurants, opulent nightlife, lavish shops and excellent service. The glamour of St Barth’s never fails to impress and feels like an exotic extension of the Cote D’Azur, but just a little bit further which keeps it rather exclusive. Cheval Blanc embodies this exclusivity. The entrance is framed by an overgrown yet perfectly manicured jungle, the shade and coolness hits you in your open-top moke and you immediately feel like you have discovered something quite precious. You swan through a stylish beach-house lobby onto the spectacular beach on Anse de Flamands. Two open-plan restaurants and 60 stylish guestrooms are nestled in the jungle, creeping up the hillside. Above all, what makes the hotel stand out is the impressive service that embodies their anything, anytime promise.
Cheval Blanc is reached by flying into St. Martin (SXM) and taking a 1 hr ferry or 5-minute hopper plane onto their epic runway.
