What it is

A serene oceanfront spread with a lengthy infinity pool that spans the beach, a sprawling Heavenly Spa by Westin, and two buzzing restaurants on the water.

What it isn't

Just for humans. The resort is pet-friendly—an all-too-rare thrill for Fido in the Caribbean.

What we think

Everything you’ve dreamed of for your vacay in paradise can be found here, in a resort so fresh and new—and blissfully quiet—that it feels like an emergent secret. Guest rooms are adorned in St. Thomas-inspired hues: airy cloud whites, ocean blues, and sandy neutrals. We love the palm tree-shrouded balconies of the 335 square foot garden view Guest Rooms, but the Oceanfront option is well worth the splurge. How often are you here, staring at a cerulean sea while you sip your coffee? For an even more indulgent stay, you can’t do any better than the Sea You Later 2 Bedroom, with its herringbone floors, ginormous living room with an L-shaped sofa, and a second bedroom…all with their own breezy balconies.

You're here because

You need more than a spa day—you need a spa week. And the services here range from body scrubs to paraffin hand treatments.

The Moment

Sure, you’re overlooking the Caribbean Sea, the wind in your hair. But your taste buds are currently on vacation in Spain. Because SandBar’s menu is tapas perfection, from the caviar blinis to the Manchego and charcuterie boards.
