Staff Picks: The Caribbean
From the Caribbean’s aromatic spice islands to its forest-peaked volcanic ranges to its isles accessible only by private boat, there are so many wonderful options to choose from in the Caribbean that you’ll always find a new beach cove, natural wonder, cultural experience, or romantic hideaway away to explore. Here are just a few of our staff favorites to inspire you:
St. Bart’s St. Lucia St. Kitts & Nevis St. Vincent & the Grenadines British Virgin Islands Bonaire/Diving Other
Eden Rock, St. Bart’s—a 2012 Conde Nast Traveller World’s Top 100 overseas leisure hotels. Ask us about their ultra luxe villas. [Pictured: Villa Rockstar]
Part of the French West Indies, St. Bart’s boasts excellent resorts, restaurants, shopping, quaint villages with a French flair, and some of the Caribbean’s most stunning and un-crowded white sand beaches. A perennial favorite of the rich and famous, as well as the quiet and exclusive, this island is trusted to please.

Perhaps one of the most quintessential images of Caribbean beauty is the striking Pitons of St. Lucia—twin green mountains rising up out of azure waters and casting peaked profiles against a sunny sky. But, St Lucia brags more than just these two natural wonders. This small island packs quite a varied punch: it is one of the only Caribbean islands to have both white and black sand beaches, a walk-in sulfur volcano, a rainforest with rare flora and fauna, active banana plantations, and a liberal sprinkling of high-end resorts and luxury villas. Let us help explore the treasures of this special island.
St. Kitts and Nevis
The 5-star Four Seasons Resort Nevis marries the friendliness of a small town in one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean with Four Seasons’ exclusivity, luxury, and unparalleled service. Ask us about our special promotions for this resort.
Sunny St. Kitts and Nevis in the British West Indies were among the first islands in the Caribbean to be settled by Europeans. For this, Saint Kitts has also been titled "The Mother Colony of the West Indies.” St. Kitts and Nevis are also two of more lush, green islands of the Caribbean. A paradise for nature lovers, small green monkeys live in the forests of Nevis and both islands boast some breathtaking beaches and golf courses. Historic refurbished sugar plantations and near-perfect weather complete their attractive package.
St. Vincent & the Grenadines
Young Island Resort, just off the coast of St. Vincent, West Indies. This private island resort has 29 guest cottages and can be rented in its entirety for weddings, corporate retreats, and special events. The whole island can be yours.

St. Vincent (the main island) and the Grenadines (a chain of smaller islands stretching south toward Grenada) are less densely populated than many other Caribbean isles—and the fact that most travelers have not even heard of many of the Grenadines just adds to their cache and exclusivity. Experience a quiet retreat of relaxed elegance, while no attention to detail or service is sparred.
Virgin Gorda & the British Virgin Islands
The British Virgin Islands combine amazing natural beauty with a British sensibility and the sportsmanship of the sailing class. Many of the B.V.I.’s smaller islands and coves are only accessible by private yacht or sailing vessel. This makes B.V.I. one of the most refined, off-the-beaten-path experiences in the region. Let us help you book your passage.
Exclusive Virtuoso Offer for Necker Island: Your hire of Sir Richard Branson’s private Necker Island will accommodate 16 guests in 8 finely appointed, Balinese-style suites on 74 acres.

Ask us about this special rent-the-island promotion that includes all meals and drinks, including fine wines and champagne, use of facilities and watersports equipment, and a team of 60 fabulous staff awaiting your command!
Are you a diving buff? Bonaire is known to have some of the best diving in all the Caribbean. The waters around Bonaire have been designated an official marine park, so diving there is the way it used to be in the Caribbean: untouched and unspoiled. The island’s reefs are pristine, accessible, and widely varied in their offerings. The water is so clear you’ll feel you can see for miles. And, the local dive culture is professional and service-oriented. Whether you are an experienced diver or just starting out, let us help you plan the Caribbean diving tour of your dreams.
[Pictured] Harbour Village Beach Club Bonaire rests on 4-acres of lushly landscaped peninsula, features a PADI 5-star Dive Resort Center, luxury suites and villas on a white sand beach, full service marina, spa, fitness center, and gourmet dining—making it one of the most elite resorts in Bonaire. Some of the world's best diving and snorkeling can be accessed just off its shore. One thing that sets the resort apart is that it allows guests on their first dive to explore the "Our Confidence”—a 60-foot dive wreck located just a few feet away from the club's private beach. A short swim away is another popular dive site called "Something Special."
