Experience Something Special April 23, 2019

If you’re seeking a hotel that lingers in the mind long after you’ve left, we have the perfect selection of long-time favourites, family-owned gems, resorts rich in heritage and impossibly-luxurious hideaways you’ll have no desire to ever leave.

BLUE WATERS, ANTIGUA



We’ve always been huge fans of Blue Waters, but don’t just take it from us: this wonderful resort received the royal seal of approval in 2016, when Prince Harry stayed here during his tour of the Caribbean. We particularly love the newly-refurbished Cove Suites, set apart from the rest of the resort and each boasting over 730 square feet of space. According to Which?, that’s the same size as the average new build home in the UK!

If that’s still not enough, how about the sprawling, 2,000-square-foot Rock Cottage? Set on its own peninsula, this palatial retreat has five bedrooms, a kitchen and a gorgeous infinity pool, offering the ultimate in privacy and seclusion.

You can also escape for some much-deserved pampering at the resort’s heavenly spa, which recently introduced a series of rejuvenating face and body treatments thanks to a new partnership with ila Spa.

7 nights from £1,449 per person sharing a Superior Hillside Room including breakfast.
OFFER: Save up to 35%
STAY: Now – 17 Oct 2019

JAMAICA INN, JAMAICA



A timeless atmosphere, sense of understated elegance and the warmest of welcomes greet you at the iconic Jamaica Inn. Over its illustrious six-decade history, the hotel has hosted the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Ian Fleming. A lot has changed over the years, but you’ll still find Teddy manning the beach bar and Rupert in charge of the croquet lawn.

There are just 55 suites, cottages and bungalows, with suites offering an expansive furnished balcony or verandah providing fabulous open-air living rooms.

The cottages are absolutely stunning, with Cottage 7 being the latest addition; this two-storey haven offers sweeping ocean views and access to a private cove. Whether you opt for an upper-floor suite complete with beach or sea views, a cottage perched on a bluff with its own oceanfront infinity pool, or a bungalow on sun-kissed sands, you’ll find this celebrated resort more than lives up to its glittering reputation.

7 nights from £1,779 per person sharing a Deluxe Verandah Suite on Room Only.
OFFER: Stay 7 Pay 5 + US$150 food & beverage credit and complimentary room upgrade
STAY: 01 May - 31 Oct 2019

MANDARIN ORIENTAL, CANOUAN, ST VINCENT & THE GRENADINES



Words like ‘luxurious’ and ‘exclusive’ don’t really do justice to the Mandarin Oriental, Canouan. First of all, you need to get to Canouan Island, accessible only by private jet or Twin Otter propeller plane. Once you’ve arrived, prepare to be blown away by the pristine white sands, vivid turquoise lagoon and impossibly-Instagrammable infinity pool.

The sumptuous suites are a vision in marble and Murano glass, with cutting-edge tech and a butler on hand for your every whim and fancy. To reach the spa, take the funicular railway up through the forest – yes, really - to one of ten hillside treatment palapas. This utterly unique resort is a place to relax, kick back and take things slow, just like the endearingly-unhurried resident tortoises.

7 nights from £4,929 per person sharing a One Bedroom Beachfront Suite including breakfast.
EXCLUSIVE OFFER: Stay 5 Pay 4 + complimentary upgrade from One Bedroom Oceanview Suite to One Bedroom Beachfront Suite + US$600 food & beverage credit
STAY: 01 May - 30 Jun & Sep 2019

CORAL REEF CLUB, BARBADOS



This refined resort is something of a Bajan institution, owned and operated by the O’Hara family for over 60 years. Many of the staff have been at the hotel several decades themselves, including head gardener Lloyd Richards, who leads a popular weekly tour of the beautifully-landscaped grounds. You can swap stories with the owners at their regular Monday night cocktail parties, and get to know some of the many repeat guests to whom the hotel is simply ‘The Club’. History and heritage does not mean old-fashioned, however: the hotel’s decor is elegant and contemporary, the Caribbean-inspired cuisine is exquisite, and The Spa offers wonderful treatments using products from Natura Bissé.

7 nights from £1,919 per person sharing a Garden Room Cottage including breakfast.
OFFER: Stay 7 Pay 6
STAY: 08 May - 24 May 2019

TAKE ME THERE >


THE SANDPIPER, BARBADOS



Coral Reef Club’s sister hotel is smaller and more intimate, with a dedicated fan club all of her own. This beautiful beachside retreat has just 50 rooms and suites, beautifully decorated with splashes of Caribbean colour. It’s the little things that make The Sandpiper so special, like The White Company bathroom amenities and the refreshing sorbet delivered daily to your sun lounger. Dining at the highly-rated restaurant is a real treat, in a romantic setting surrounded by flickering torches and elegant koi ponds. And if you really want to push the boat out then take a look at the Beach House, a stunning three-bedroom villa set right on the sand.

7 nights from £1,889 per person sharing a Garden Room including breakfast.
OFFER: Stay 7 Pay 6 + complimentary tennis coaching
STAY: 08 May - 09 Aug 2019

JUMBY BAY ISLAND, ANTIGUA



This 300-acre private island is peppered with palm trees, caressed by cerulean waters, free from cars and an ultra-luxurious escape for the discerning traveller to whom service and privacy are paramount. But how do you improve on perfection? That’s the challenge that faced new owners the Oetker Collection when they took over Jumby Bay in 2018, but we’re happy to say it’s looking better than ever following a multi-million dollar upgrade.

Jumby’s interiors have been refreshed with subtle tones, rattan furniture and nautically-inspired flourishes. New additions include an Italian-style beachfront trattoria, a sparkling seafront infinity pool and upgrades at the spa, including redesigned treatment rooms and a new steam room and sauna.

The Estate House restaurant, set within an elegant 19th-century plantation house, also gets a fresh new look, and you can now enjoy a unique farm-to-table dinner under the stars at the island’s organic kitchen farm.

Regular guests can relax safe in the knowledge that the old Jumby Bay magic hasn’t been dimmed; this remains one of the world’s most exclusive luxury resorts, with the same spectacular cuisine, beautiful natural setting and superb level of service that has always made this such a favourite of ours.

7 nights from £4,849 per person sharing a Rondavel Room on All-Inclusive.

COMO PARROT CAY, TURKS & CAICOS



Many resorts claim to offer an escape from the crowds, but few deliver on that promise quite like COMO Parrot Cay. Find your own piece of paradise on this mesmerisingly-beautiful private island, spread over 1,000 acres of almost entirely undeveloped powder-white sand. This is where the A-listers come for respite from pursuit by the paparazzi, a tranquil retreat with a focus on wellness.

The award-winning COMO Shambhala Retreat is a destination in itself, with holistic Asian-inspired treatments and complimentary yoga classes. The resort underwent an extensive refurbishment last year, introducing a soothing palette of bleached wood floors, teak furniture and crisp white linens that only adds to the sense of serene relaxation.

7 nights from £2,849 per person sharing a Garden View Room including breakfast.
OFFER: Stay 7 Pay 5

MARBELLA CLUB, MARBELLA, SPAIN



Old-world glamour meets contemporary chic at the legendary Marbella Club. Originally built in the 1950s as the private residence of a German aristocrat, the hotel became a playground for the international jetset, attracting the likes of Brigitte Bardot and Audrey Hepburn.

Never one to rest on its laurels, Marbella Club has brought things bang up to date with stylish accommodation, a 5,000-square-metre kids’ club and an extensive wellness centre. The weekend buffet at the Beach Club is a local institution, and the hotel enjoys a prime location on the ‘Golden Mile’, halfway between Marbella old town and glitzy Puerto Banus.

7 nights from £1,569 per person sharing a Deluxe Double Room including breakfast.

NECKER ISLAND, BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS



Even the most seasoned travellers in the Caribtours office were green with envy when travel adviser Abi stayed at Necker Island earlier this year. Sir Richard Branson’s ultra-exclusive retreat is the world’s most famous private island, hosting up to 30 guests in unparalleled luxury. Necker is usually only available on a whole island buyout basis, but the Celebration Weeks offer a rare opportunity to book individual rooms. Ask our travel advisers for more details on these special weeks which take place during selected dates throughout the year.

ULUSABA, SABI SAND RESERVE, SOUTH AFRICA



Experience the magic of a South African safari in spectacular surroundings with a stay at Ulusaba, Sir Richard Branson’s exclusive private game reserve. Situated within the wildlife-rich Sabi Sand Reserve, surrounded by 13,500 acres of open bush, this is a fantastic spot to track the Big Five on twice-daily game drives, along with hippos, giraffes, cheetahs and more. Many of the sumptuous rooms have their own private plunge pool, where it’s not unknown for elephants to stop by and quench their thirst.

From £485 per person per night, sharing an Elephant Room on All-Inclusive, plus two game drives daily.

HUVAFEN FUSHI, MALDIVES



Find the desert island you’ve been dreaming of at Huvafen Fushi, one of the most beautiful boutique resorts in the Maldives. If it’s sandy feet you seek then opt for a beach bungalow; if you’re more of a water baby, the overwater bungalows are the perfect choice. Either way, you’ll have your own private plunge pool, 24-hour butler service and high-end amenities including portable Marshall speakers and an in-room espresso machine.

Cosmopolitan culinary options include recent addition Feeling Koi, where you can feast on Japanese izakaya-style cooking, while the chic UMBar is a great place to cosy up on a beanbag or cool off with a cocktail.

Don your snorkel gear and you’ll discover another world below the water, a veritable kaleidoscope of colourful fish and coral reefs. Join the resort’s resident marine biologist for a guided underwater excursion, paddle a glass-bottomed kayak around the turquoise lagoon, or book yourself in for a soothing treatment at the underwater spa.

Dive deeper still at Vinum, the Maldives’ first underground wine cellar, where you can enjoy an exclusive tasting menu and wine pairing some eight metres below sea level.

7 nights from £3,885 per person sharing a Beach Bungalow with Plunge Pool on Half Board

EXCLUSIVE OFFER: Save 35% + complimentary Half Board
