This lavish Caribbean hotel includes 180 luxurious guest rooms, many with ocean views. Think beige-on-beige, sturdy colonial furnishing, Oriental rugs, and big walls of windows. The varied dining options include Bleuwater, which specializes in aged prime meats, chops, and seafood paired with an award-winning wine list, and Great Bay Lounge, which leans more toward fresh sushi, nigiri rolls, and sashimi. The spa references the locale as well as the Mediterranean with 11 seaside treatment rooms and a private cabana, where treatments range from coconut-enzyme facials to rain therapy Vichy shower massages.
In the Area
St. Thomas is the most populous of the four major U.S. Virgin Islands and serves as a handy jumping off point for day trips and overnights by boat to islands like St. John, a national park. It’s also home to many white-sand beaches and some of the best Duty Free shopping in the Caribbean.
How to Get There
Recent couples trip to the Ritz-Carlton St Thomas residence was totally amazing. The five star service sets them apart from any other resort. The place is absolutely breathtaking. Your every request is met with quality. On Saturday we felt like taking a boat ride to see some of the sights and do a bit of snorkeling. I made the request Friday night and by 830 am Saturday we were met on the beach with a 30 ft center console with twin 300 outboards. Tyler at the resort can really work some magic. We snorkeled in many different locations seeing fish turtles and lots of exotic fish. He even arranged for lunch at a floating taco bar off St. John called lime out. It really put the icing on the cake. I can’t say enough about Tyler he even made sure our beach chairs were in our favorite spot before the sun came up daily. And while at the pool bar you can’t go wrong with a creation by charlesworth. Best bartender hands down. Thanks to everyone at the ritz for making my wife’s birthday fabulous especially our Family who arranged the trip Joe and Laurianne.
Considering about a year after two cat 5 hurricanes the place was meticulously redesigned and repaired,
The staff is world class expect the best in everything and you will receive it. Plenty to do with in town dining (though that scene is still in recovery mode) new places really nice and some of the old returned. Love the locals
Loved staying at the residences. Rented a place that had 3 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths for 7 people. 1 person had to sleep on the couch, but still plenty of room for all. The view was spectacular. All the pools on the residence side are now open, but they are still repairing the hotel side (expected September completion). The bar tender Dennis is great. Very friendly and inviting. This place is very close to downtown redhook. About a 5 minute cab ride. It's walkable too, but the roads are narrow, making walking a little treacherous. The beach is right off the pool, making doing either at anytime very convenient. The entire staff is friendly and you'll be greeted with a rum drink when you arrive. Fitness center on the property is open and very extensive for a hotel fitness center. I would definitely go back.
