Caribbean hotels will book for fall 2022


Many of us have been cautious over the past couple of years about travel to the Caribbean. (Is this sea of ​​protocol worth it for a week?) The regulatory gauntlet is now all but gone and, just at the right time, there are new places to stay. (In addition to the five below, keep in mind Anguilla’s stunning Cap Juluca, completely renovated in 2018 when it became a Belmond property – it only gets better. And its beach? To die for earth.)


A private beach is a rarity in Providenciales, Turks & Caicos, and the new Rock House enclave (where you can rent or buy) has one. Off camera is a 120ft pier.

There’s something about hotels on the cliffs – the views, the apartment. This new residential oasis (which you can own or rent) sits on a limestone escarpment overlooking a private white sand beach in Providenciales. Its 46 “villas” (from studios to self-contained four-bedroom apartments) are all clean stone lines, floor-to-ceiling windows, and terraces. There’s an infinity pool, restaurant and gym, cave-like lounge, and below, a Capriesque beach club with a 120-foot pier from which boat and yacht tours depart.

The Jumby Bay Bar & Lounge, steps from the sand, is the social hub of this newly renovated resort on a private island.

This Caribbean’s most upscale all-inclusive, on its own 300-acre car-free island, isn’t just under a new umbrella (Oetker’s Masterpiece Collection). The 12 newly completed indoor/outdoor ocean view suites feature expansive verandas, open-air bathrooms and private plunge pools. Some can be combined for a three bedroom option. If you’re coming with kids, a boat trip to Nelson’s Dockyard, Britain’s largest Caribbean naval base, is a must: an eye-opening lesson in the realities of British colonial power.



aurora anguilla resort and golf club

It’s hard to beat Aurora Anguilla’s setting – on Rendezvous Bay Beach, looking out over the rugged silhouette of St. Maarten.


Formerly the Cuisinart, now under new ownership, this 178-room, 300-acre resort and golf club is as close to a grand establishment as I hope this laid-back little island will ever get. But the renovation seems decent: decor is airy and mostly white (why fight against the turquoise beauty of Rendezvous Bay beach?), there are seven restaurants with varied cuisines (including seafood, a steakhouse, a Italian and one Japanese), two Greg Norman golf courses (18 and 9 holes), tennis courts, a children’s playground, an extensive spa and numerous multi-bedroom suites for your tribe.

If you’re okay with a towering beach structure (and those top-tier views can’t be beat), this classic of the island’s gorgeous Seven-Mile Beach just got a major update to rave reviews. . Interiors are now fresh and stylish, the food remains exceptional (the hotel is chef Eric Ripert’s Caribbean outpost), and the scuba diving and snorkeling of the Caymans is even better than before: during two years, no cruise ships have disturbed the waters and the fish practically come so far as to say hello.



pool at silversands grenada caribbean resort

Silversands on Grenada has this exceptionally long main pool, leading directly to Grande Anse beach. (His four-bedroom private villas come with smaller versions of these.)


This lush, slightly off-the-radar island known for its nutmeg plantations, rum distilleries and Grand Anse beach got its first five-star hotel in 2018, and it’s rightly gaining traction. A 51-room modernist gem, Silversands’ piece de resistance is an impossibly long pool lined with daybeds that stretches from the lobby to the sand. A Tesla can pick you up from the airport, water toys abound, a personal trainer can be arranged, there are waterfalls in the hills to hike and, drum roll, Grenada is south of the line hurricanes: you can go tomorrow.
