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
In typical Ritz fashion, this is a great hotel. Service is good and pool area and accommodations are spacious and well taken care of. Food can be a bit pricey so plan ahead and make sure you get the breakfast included. Very family friendly, great for kids of all ages!
This resort / hotel is the gem of the island, It has old world charm mixed with a modern day elegance. The view from the lobby will take your breath away ... some rooms are better than others depending on what you want to spend. Since we aren't in the room much we opt for the seller option. Nice restaurants, great room service, great service by the pool or on the sandy private beach. I paddle boarded for the first time and the employees were very helpful! I hope the hurricane recovery ends soon so I can book again next year!
This was before the hurricane. We enjoyed 3 nights at the club level. Lovely large room. Property is pretty large and hilly but they have golf cart pick ups of needed. The club was spacious and always food and drinks available. Very friendly staff. I want to go back. Snorkel from the beach Paddle boards too!
Outstanding stay, amazing view and fine service. Kathleen at the beach shack makes the best cocktails and has the warmest personality! Had the best service and they take the time to make personal connections with all the guests.Very happy with my experience! I highly recommend coming to this hotel if you want to have a relaxing and high class vacation. Rooms and beds are paradise in themselves
We stayed in an ocean view room full of beautiful amenities. The wedding suite was large and had an unbeatable view. The staff was very helpful and kind to our large and crazy bridal party. The venue was perfect for a large destination wedding and was an experience we'll never forget.
