From decadent Bajan resorts in sugar-sweet Barbados, to the intimacy of private retreats in exclusive Mustique and exceptional private villa living in Anguilla, there is an enviable collection of luxurious accommodation to choose from. From palatial mansions and palm-fringed beach retreats, guests can dip their toes in the turquoise waters, embrace the tropical breeze, catch the scent of the native hibiscus flower, savour some local jerk chicken and sway, like the palm trees, to the rhythm of the famous steel pan drums. Whether you seek a little culture in the spice island of Grenada, wish to hike amongst the picturesque Pitons of Saint Lucia, or yarn to sail the waters of Antigua, you’re bound to discover your own version of paradise. For those keen to take to the helm, the Caribbean is also a marine playground, boasting idyllic waters. From setting sail on a nautical adventure, to indulging on a relaxing day charter, the Caribbean is the ideal setting to explore spectacular underwater life.
