The Caribbean will make you feel fantastic — sun, sea and a splash of paradise, but which island is your kind of paradise? Take a look through these five ideas for your time in the sun.
For digital detoxers — The Grenadines
Palm Island Resort & Spa is a total get-away-from-it-all destination — a tiny white-sand private island, only accessible by boat. It’s so beautiful, you can zone-out into screen-free bliss, with no TVs or WiFi in the rooms, simply the sound of lapping waves. The Tranquility Body & Soul spa provides massage and beauty treatments, including full-body therapies using tropical-fruit extracts. No children under 12, so you’re in a sophisticated adult-space. Set yourself to chill-out time.
For peace seekers — St Lucia
Jade Mountain, overlooking St Lucia’s dramatic conical Piton mountain peaks, is tranquil bliss. Even the rooms are called sanctuaries, many with infinity pools, and the reassuring peace of no TV. Set in 600 tropical acres, there are winding routes to hike or cycle, plus a large spa and fitness studio.
For body boosters — St Lucia
BodyHoliday — the clue is in the name — is a rejuvenating all-inclusive holiday experience, featuring daily health treatments, plus your choice of sports such as exercise classes, water sports, relaxation classes and much more. All set in a tropical wonderland, win-win we say.
For dedicated dieters — Antigua, Barbados, St Lucia, Jamaica, Grenada, Bahamas
Dotted on beautiful beaches all over the Caribbean, Sandals Resorts are known for catering well for those on special diets. With prior notice, they will order food and drinks specific to your needs, with gluten-free options as standard. And for wellness, their signature Red Lane® Spas feature natural botanicals. Try a Caribbean Glow treatment of a peptide wrap with 26 dynamic ingredients and unique massage therapy techniques, to warm, firm and tone areas of concern.
For active romantics — Jamaica
Couples Swept Away is the place for activity-loving couples. With a 10-acre sports and fitness centre, and located on a seven-mile beach that’s perfect for a morning run, it’s an adults-only paradise of health, fitness, and romance. There are 10 floodlit tennis courts, a seven-lane fitness pool, squash courts, water sports, scuba-diving, a gym, golf and a spa. And if you’re still feeling energetic, there’s a nightclub for dancing the night away.
