Less is More: Great Caribbean Boutique Resorts
Savvy travelers know that size isn't everything. Sometimes the grand resorts are the perfect choice when you want to get lost in a crowd. But other times, you need a place that's designed to cater to you. That's why we've selected these three boutique hotels for Caribbean luxury on a human scale that wins rave reviews from us!
Kura Hulanda Hotel & Spa is one of our favorite small hotels. This Caribbean gem, with only 80 luxurious rooms and suites, is in the midst of a historic eight-block village of restored 18th and 19th century Dutch Colonial buildings in Willemstad, Curacao. The tranquil setting includes charming cobblestone pathways among a stunning spa, casino, world-class museum, gourmet restaurants and two pools that will take your breath away. The Eco Pond Pool, with its lush plantings and natural design, is a million miles away from the modern world. From the hand-carved teak and mahogany furnishings to the thoughtful amenities, you'll be pampered from the moment you arrive. And if you're planning a honeymoon, there's nothing like the Indian Bridal Suite for a romantic oasis.
Redefining the standards for a luxury boutique hotel, Zoetry Casa del Mar in Los Cabos offers superb style and the highest level of service. The hacienda-style resort boasts a perfect white-sand beach, four inviting pools and 63 spacious suites with all the luxuries you expect from a world-class resort. Indulge your whims at the swim-up bar or in the three gourmet restaurants. Retreat to a fabulous spa for a 20-minute spa treatment daily as part of the Endless Privileges spa services. This small hotel's Caribbean style and attention to detail sets it apart from the competition. We love the Bvlgaria bath amenities and just spending time on the furnished terrace of an ocean-view suite-sheer heaven.
Take our advice and book a luxury boutique hotel for your next vacation. A boutique hotel's Caribbean setting will leave you breathless, as will the service at these small hotels. A Caribbean vacation is the perfect time to sample boutique style!
