Quick Guide To The Caribbean

Quick Guide To The Caribbean

“Paradise” is​ a​ word often used to​ describe the islands of​ the Caribbean. it​ seems that one visit leads to​ a​ lifetime’s love, and that’s certainly true when you choose to​ stay at​ an​ exquisite boutique hotel.

Where is​ it?

The Caribbean islands sit in​ the Caribbean Sea, in​ between the southern tip of​ Florida and the north coast of​ South America. in​ total, there are more than 7000 islands in​ this area, but only a​ few of​ those are regular tourist destinations, including Antigua, Barbados, Haiti, Saint Lucia and the Virgin Islands.

Where can I stay?

There’s no shortage of​ lovely places to​ stay on any of​ the most popular islands and the laid-back culture that’s spread throughout the Caribbean means that most places are a​ joy to​ stay in. There are, however, some really special boutique hotels where guests are given the very best of​ everything – design, décor, food, service and hospitality. These hotels keep the number of​ available rooms low so that you’re not bumping into crowds at​ breakfast or​ constrained in​ any way. On Barbuda, the barefoot luxury of​ The Beach House’s twenty one rooms is​ just one of​ the reasons it​ draws discerning honeymooners and romantic couples. The hotel’s boutique feel is​ accentuated by the wonderful service that guests receive. Alternatively, the Lone Star Hotel and Restaurant on Barbados has just eight rooms, all of​ them with beautiful contemporary styling – a​ simplicity that matches the landscape – and each of​ them with access onto an​ amazing stretch of​ beach. or​ try the Montpelier Plantation Inn on St. Kitts and Nevis, where a​ sympathetic and classic renovation has resulted in​ a​ cool, sophisticated retreat in​ amongst 30 acres of​ wonderful tropical plants.

What can I see?

Most people visit the Caribbean with thoughts of​ lying on the beach and swimming in​ the sea uppermost in​ their minds. But there’s more to​ the Caribbean islands than the fabulous coastline. Learn about the history of​ the island people by visiting museums and plantations, or​ by viewing the wonderful art and craft. Diving and snorkelling are always popular and glass-bottomed boats and undersea vehicles let you experience sea-life as​ you’ve never seen it​ before. There’s also plenty of​ opportunity for other water sports, fishing, golf and horse-riding and, if​ you’re staying at​ one of​ our boutique hotels, the concierge and staff will be delighted to​ help you plan your day and book trips to​ other islands or​ on special excursions.

How do I get around?

Depending on which island you choose, there is​ a​ variety of​ transport. There are bus services on most island but they vary in​ quality and regularity. You can hire a​ car on the larger islands, but drivers don’t always come first, so watch for pedestrians, cyclists and animals. You will also need a​ driving licence or​ permit as​ required by the island, which is​ inexpensive to​ buy, but you must bring your own driving licence in​ order to​ get one. Bikes are available for hire on most islands and there are usually taxi services available. to​ move between islands, use the local ferry services.
