Boutique hotels in Caribbean (15)

A broad expanse of islands between North America, South America, the Caribbean is a wonderland, not only for the golden beaches of the area, but for the unique heritage and culture it contains. Think beyond calypso and reggae, there’s so much more for the intrepid traveller to discover.

Where to go
To list all the highlights of the Caribbean would take several volumes, let alone a destination guide, so let’s focus on activities. The coral reefs found throughout the region make for superb snorkelling and scuba-diving. The broad sweeping bays are ideal for watersports such as jet skiing, parasailing, windsurfing and surfing of all types. The mountainous environments of many Caribbean islands make for excellent mountain biking trails and there are several world-class golf course in the region. Boutique shopping can be found on most of the larger islands and each has patrolled beaches for swimming and sunbathing.

Food & Drink
Caribbean cuisine is the very definition of ‘fusion’ - it not only draws from the dishes prepared by the African slave population but from the many colonial powers who vied for power in the region. Expect to encounter plantain - a sort of ‘cooking banana’ - used within a variety of dishes. For the very best dining in the Caribbean, we recommend La Plage (Baie de St. Jean) on St Barth’s for its exciting innovative fare and presentation. Otherwise, dine like James Bond at the Gazebo at Goldeneye (Race Course, Oracabessa), Ian Fleming’s Jamaica retreat. 

Where to begin? The Caribbean positively hums with the sounds of nightclubs and bars. We’ll restrict our recommendations to islands in general, rather than specific bars and clubs. Our picks are Barbados and St Barth’s, both vibrant and fun islands crammed with exclusive beach clubs, yet without the relative crowds of some of the biggest regional destinations. Both are small enough to explore by car or boat, so get looking - and tell us your favourites! 

Where to stay
Our picks for the Caribbean are Cobbler's Cove and Hotel Le Toiny. Cobbler’s Cove on Barbados is a luxury hotel that offers a huge range of activities and spacious, luxury suites that have beachfront access. Hotel Le Toiny on St Barth’s is an exclusive hotel that boasts one of the best beach clubs in the Caribbean and fantastic dining with sunset views, alongside their luxury villas. 

How to get there
Daily flights leave from London airports to various Caribbean islands, with most transiting through Miami or Orlando.
