US Virgin Islands Top Spots

Filed Under: Caribbean, top hotels

The islands of St. John, St. Thomas and St. Croix offer travelers truly astounding views of the Caribbean Sea, as well strikingly different accommodations. But where to stay: a large and traditional resort, an eco-villa or a luxury private yacht? We weigh the options.

Frenchman’s Reef Resort
Estate Bakkeroe, St. Thomas, 00802 Virgin Islands (US)
The largest resort in St. Thomas, Frenchman’s Reef offers the traditional all-inclusive resort experience with a few extra-special perks: a jaw-dropping view, a private beach, a water ferry to town and plenty of water activities (did someone say glass-bottom kayak?). Situated on a 17-acre bluff overlooking the Caribbean Sea, the 4-star resort has 470 rooms, 7 restaurants and 3 pools.

Pros: Impressive views, all-inclusive resort, great location
Cons: Crowds, more of a tourist destination
Xiuma Private Chartered Yachts
Let husband-and-wife sailing team Virginia Lee and Jonathan Wehrung whisk you around the US Virgin Islands. Go wherever you want, whenever you want, on this luxurious private yacht. Everything is included -- Virginia will even cook up a fabulous, gourmet meal for you aboard the yacht.

Pros:
Explore the US Virgin Islands at your own pace. Plus, everything is included, and it’s a different kind of vacation.
Cons: Smaller space, tight quarters, small beds
Eco Serendib Villa
Experience a true “seed to plate” meal at the fabulously-appointed Eco Serendib Villa. If you book your trip 125 days out, the staff will plant a small garden according to your tastes and harvest it when you get here! The 5-star luxury villa has 8 different suites, along with a private pool set against crystal-clear waters, white sands and lush trees on the small island of St. Thomas.

Pros: Eco-friendly, quiet, private pool, well-appointed kitchen, great views
Cons: No beach
