The Caribbean offers a wealth of fantastic hotels on a unique selection of beautiful tropical islands. If you want brilliant white sandy beaches, with crystal clear waters, secluded resorts offering complete rest and relaxation, or indeed action packed resorts providing everything you need from a lively beach holiday, you need look no further than the Caribbean islands. But where should you stay? Take a look at some of the most amazing hotels and resorts you'll ever come across:
Renowned the world over for its level of luxury and impeccable service, Sandy Lane in Barbados is a favourite of the rich and famous. A tranquil haven nestled among the pine trees, providing an elegant setting for the perfect holiday. Whether you have romance on your mind or you're visiting as a family and want the best a hotel can offer, you won’t find better than this beautiful hotel. You can choose to stay in the spacious and luxurious rooms and suites or the amazing five bedroom villa, all decorated stylishly and with all the mod cons you'd expect from a luxury hotel. Whether you want to relax around a pool or on a sun-lounger on the beach, or you prefer to be a little more active, Sandy Lane has it all - including a golf course, a wide range of water-sports, tennis courts and a fantastic spa. Nothing is too much trouble here.
The Meridian Club
This idyllic island hideaway is just that, set on its own 800 acre island in the Turks and Caicos islands. There’s a beautiful 2 mile stretch of white sandy beach, along which the rooms and cottages are located, nestled in and among the sand dunes - all of which have an unrivalled view of the beautiful Caribbean sea. With only twelve rooms and cottages available in the resort, you can guarantee attentive service and you'll easily find a little piece of the island for yourself if you want to completely detach from reality. Dinners are served each night by candle light under the stars, although there's no formal dining here. It's a place where you can truly relax – in fact, most people don't even wear shoes for the entire duration of their stay! If you want to try your hand at water-sports, there’s a wide range available from the beach. There are also bikes to hire which allow you to explore the island using the many pathways, and you can even catch a boat or sea plane to the nearest golf course, should you fancy a round of golf. It's a truly magical place and one of the most exclusive resorts in the world.
Of course if you are looking at travelling to a far away destination, you are likely to be flying from one of the UK's major airports. To really get the holiday off to a great start, why not book a hotel at the airport before your flight. With such a long flight, the last thing you need is to arrive at the airport already exhausted, so why not book a room at the airport before you fly, like the Travelodge hotel in Heathrow? It’s a handy holiday add-on that won’t break the bank, and you'll wake up refreshed and ready to face the flight, already in the holiday mood.
