Luxury Holidays to the Caribbean
Luxury Holidays to the caribbean
The Caribbean has long been heralded an idyllic escape for those seeking a piece of paradise – a different world from what we have at home; radiant sunshine, golden sandy shores and crystal clear waters, but there’s so much more to these islands. A history rich in storytelling, vibrant landscapes everywhere you look, cuisine that packs a lot of flavour and cultural island traditions that transport you. You’ll often arrive as a tourist, but leave as a friend. Let’s explore this incredible destination together.
Some of our favourite destinations across the caribbean
Perhaps one of the most popular destinations in the Caribbean – and definitely the most connected from the UK – Barbados draws in over 1,000,000 tourists annually but don’t worry, that doesn’t mean the island feels crowded. The offering here has developed over recent years, alluring every type of traveller; there’s no shortage of luxury resorts here, too. From busting Bridgetown – home to all the cruise ships that visit the island – to the calming coves of the south, to the reefs scattered along the coastline – perfect for diving with turtles – Barbados is a fantastic destination for an adult-only escape or family fun in the sun.
There’s a lot of reasons to love Antigua – its beautiful white sand beaches, sailing, Nelson’s Dockyard, its culinary delicacies, the largest nesting colony of frigate birds in the Caribbean, and much more. With 365 beaches, there is no other island in the Caribbean that can boast a beach for every day of the year! Despite the reputation, Antigua delivers fairly consistent weather year-round, whilst the northeast trade winds provide lower humidity. Whether you choose to relax in your luxury all-inclusive resort or hike to Shirley Heights for incredible sunset scenes, or go back in time to 18th Century Nelson’s Dockyard National Park, Antigua is an incredible Caribbean island.
Breathtaking mountains, lush rainforests, volcanic sand beaches, colourful coral reefs… these are just a few of our favourite things about St Lucia. From the moment you arrive, the view of the Pitons towering over the shoreline is awe-inspiring; be sure to make time for an up-close adventure during your stay. Whilst the island may be historically volcanic, Anse Chastanet and Rodney Bay are picture-perfect white sand beaches. From hiking the dense rainforests to snorkelling the vibrant reefs, to unwinding at one of the many luxury resorts, St Lucia should be on your bucket list, delivering a balance between adventure and relaxation.
st vincent & the grenadines
A chain of volcanic islands, islets and sandbanks, St Vincent and the Grenadines are largely undiscovered. Rich in sailing (and pirate!) history, there’s a bounty of tranquil, secluded beaches offering a peaceful pace. But where to stay? Whilst you could stay on the mainland (St Vincent) upon your arrival, it’s the islands that have our appeal; the charming island of Bequia is just 9 miles away, measuring just 7 square miles, or opt for Canouan for beautiful beaches galore. Of the 32 islands making up St Vincent and the Grenadines, only nine are inhabited, and most privately owned – Palm Island & Young Island are comparable to the Maldives for a secluded stay.
Famed for the bounty of nutmeg, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, and more, Grenada has become known as ‘the spice island’, but there’s much more to be discovered about this intriguing island country, including its world-class cocoa, amazing beaches, majestic waterfalls and world’s first underwater sculpture park. Seeing as the sculptures serve as artificial reefs, you can expect to see an array of marine species during a dive here. The island is also filled with Grenada is filled with amazing beaches, one of the most popular being Grand Anse Beach. Cool off with a refreshing dip at Annandale Waterfall or embark on a foodie island tour before returning to your luxury resort as you sip sundowners.
Turks & Caicos
Endless white sand beaches and turquoise waters, the Turks & Caicos islands are among the most stunning of the Caribbean and with Virgin Atlantic’s new flight this season, more accessible. Home to the third largest barrier reef in the world, expect incredible diving as well as whale watching between January & March. There is definitely no shortage of luxury here too, with resorts such as Amanyara, The Ritz Carlton and Pine Cay – a 2-mile long private island retreat with 13 hotel rooms, 1 restaurant and a cluster of private homes – all delivering incredible stays. Well-connected to the US, this island is also a great option to twin with a Florida trip.
