Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."Biras Creek sits on 140 the hilly and secluded acres on the eastern tip of Virgin Gorda. Guests arrive by boat, helicopter, or ferry from Beef Island Airport, and are whisked off in a golf cart to one of the cottage suites—most of which has an outdoor shower and a pair of bicycles parked at the entryway. A short stroll past a salt-pond bird sanctuary is Deep Bay, where you’ll find a trove of catamarans, wind-surfers, and kayaks for guests to use. To truly escape, untie one and cruise along the scrubby coastline until you spy the perfect cove to call your own for the day." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Set on a 140-acre peninsula, this stone resort is accessible only by boat or helicopter, and “it gets a lot of honeymooners.” Rooms with private garden showers have a white-and-turquoise color scheme, Caribbean artwork, and verandas with sea views. Splurge on the master suite, which has “a plunge pool, a great living room, and two decks right on the ocean.” The candlelit dinner at Hilltop comes with “a fabulous view” of the North Sound—“the food is outstanding, but you have to climb to the top of the resort to get it.” The signature Island Cooler treatment at the spa incorporates a salt scrub, just-picked aloe, and a body wrap and massage. “I pray that I get a chance to return someday.” ~From CondeNastTraveler.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Signature dish:Green-apple-and-bacon-stuffed jerk pork chop with parsley potatoes and island rum sauce. Don't miss: A snorkeling trip with Captain Wayne. Catch a spiny lobster and the resort will cook it for you. (Four-course set menu, $85; snorkeling trip free for guests.)" ~From cntraveler.com

National Geographic Traveler says..."Hilltop 1874 mansion overlooking Penobscot Bay. Minimalist interior warmed by spare-design highlights. Modern guest rooms fitted with latest electronics; some also have working fireplaces. The pastry chef makes breakfast a treat. At dinner, lobsters get fine-dining treatment. Just a short stroll to historic seaport blessedly free of Cape Cod-style crowds. 18 rooms."-2009 Stay List, www.traveler.nationalgeographic.com

This hotel says...

The property will close from 20Aug to 15Nov, 2012. During this time enhancements will be made including new doors and windows, new soft goods and bathroom upgrades for all guestrooms. New air conditioning units and other infrastructure improvements are also part of the plan. If there is one place that embodies the romance, serenity and physical beauty of The Caribbean, it is Cap Juluca. Located along the intimate crescent of Maundays Bay, our Moorish architecture and Moroccan decor are as timeless as the sea itself. And thanks to a 25-million dollar renovation, Cap Juluca is tailored to todays travelers and seekers of solace, yet focused on improving your overall resort experience. From re-envisioning every guest room, to reconstructing The Main House into the new social center of the resort, with an extensive library and luxury lounge, to the placement of 60,000 new flowering plants, the look of Cap Juluca is both refreshed and rejuvenated.

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."Located on spectacular Maundays Bay, this 179-acre Caribbean resort with its striking Moorish architecture has long been a favorite of everyone from honeymooners to Hollywood A-listers. A recent renovation freshened public spaces as well as the interiors of its 97 rooms and suites and six private pool villasaknown for their Morocco-meets-West Indies dAcor (dark-wood louvered windows and white-tiled floors paired with colorful silk pillows and arched doorways). The lodgings are spread along two miles of sugary white-sand beach, as are the three restaurants, five cabana bars (where servers dole out free snacks), a spectacular domed open-air lounge, a wine bar, and a pool." -From Travel + Leisure

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Guests "can't rave enough" about this resort on "a superb stretch of beach" on Maundays Bay. "Beautiful oceanfront rooms" done in Moorish-style have covered terraces and either a solarium, a second pri- vate terrace on the roof, or an ocean view from the bathroom. "We love the pool villas." Choose from Pan-Asian cuisine at Spice or a blend of European and Caribbean gastronomy at Pimms, including Anguillan lobster bisque and black Angus beef tender- loin with olive oil pure�?Âe. For live entertainment on the beach, head to the Maundays Club restaurant. "It's not cheap, but the service and attention to detail are unmatched."" ~From cntraveler.com

This hotel says...

From your lounge chair perched on the white sand- facing the crystal clear waters of Saint-Jean Bay- you have only to climb a wooden staircase polished by the elements to reach the Eden Rock - St Barths. Located on a rocky headland overlooking the coral reefs- this little village of villas with rust-red roofs stands on the foundations of the former property of the aviator and adventurer Remy de Haenen- the first pilot to land a plane on the island back in the 1940s. Jane and David Matthews have created the modern and eclectic interiors of the themed suites including the Howard Hughes- the Fregate with its private Jacuzzi- and the Greta Garbo. An original and elegant address- perfect for soaking up the sun of St. Barts- lazing on the beach and exploring the dazzling undersea world. CLUB 5C Hotel welcomes Relais and Chateaux Club 5C members with a VIP Welcome and a Discovery Privilege. Please include the Club 5C membership number in the reservation and please show your Club 5C membership card on arrival.

Travel + Leisure says..."Whether it’s the rocky promontory of its setting, above the sunbathers on St. Jean beach, or the likelihood of rubbing elbows with Cameron Diaz or Matt Dillon in the Sand Bar, Eden Rock is a perennial epicenter of style on celebrity-studded St. Bart’s. The 34 accomodations are each different and can include such idiosyncratic details as a rock wall or a Philippe Starck–designed bathroom. The Harbour House and De Haenen suites, which float above the bay, have the best views. With its two bedrooms, the beachfront Villa Nina is rife with perks: an art gallery with a rotating selection of works on display, a private pool, and even a Mini Cooper to take for a spin. Dine at On the Rocks, the open-air French restaurant overlooking the bay." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Experience the best of the best" at the former home of St. Barts's first mayor, set on a rocky point overlooking St. Jean Bay. Expect "flawless service": "Staff bend over back- ward to take care of your every need." Guest rooms are "like works of art," with antiques, hardwoods, rain showers, and beds with silk and satin pillows. At the aptly named On the Rocks with Jean-Georges, enjoy globally inspired dishes with ingredients from the garden and "memorable views of the stars" through the glass roof." ~From CondeNastTraveler.com
