  • Caribbean spa and well-being holidays

    CE07 Coral Reef ClubRelaxation Lounger CRC 101_741x434
    Think Caribbean, and you can’t help but picture palm-fringed beaches and gin-clear seas, rum punch cocktails and steel drum bands. From the Bahamas to Bardados, Trinidad to Tortola, the Caribbean is studded with some of the most exclusive and indulgent private-island hotels and beach resorts on earth.
    Caribbean hotels featured in our Spa and Well-being programme include The BodyHoliday in St Lucia and Round Hill in Jamaica, each offering an excellent range of treatments in a stunning location. Many other hotels in the Caribbean also feature excellent spas - view our Caribbean holiday pages for more information.
    For many visitors, getting away from the beach means going out for a snorkel or hopping out on a windsurfer. However, dig a little deeper, and the Caribbean is a fascinating, diverse travel destination in its own right, suffused in history, with each island boasting its own unique character and personality.
    Geographically, the islands vary dramatically. As a general rule, the low-lying coral islands – the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, and the islands of the Venezuelan coast – have the best bone-white beaches and swimming, but are less interesting inland. Volcanic islands by contrast – for example, the Windward Islands such as St Lucia, St Vincent and Grenada – are more dramatic, covered in steep, tangled forest plunging dramatically into the sea, with classic crescent bays and palm-tree beaches, brilliant for birdwatching and hiking, mountain-biking and nature-trails. Find out more about the islands of the Caribbean by viewing our Caribbean holiday pages.

    Local highlights

    Sheltered sailing in the British Virgin Islands; hiking in St Lucia up the famous Piton mountains, as well as Jump Up parties every Friday; hundreds of flat, sandy islands in the Bahamas; exploring the parishes of Barbados; the forested slopes of Jamaica’s Blue Mountains, as well its vibrant reggae scene; carnival in Trinidad and Cuba; Havana’s salsa; French colonial architecture on St Barthelemy, St-Martin and Guadeloupe; private island resorts; cricket everywhere; mountain biking and white-water rafting on the Dominic Republic; assisting scientists with turtle conservation in the Cayman Islands.

    Getting out and about

    The most extensive links between islands are by air, with LIAT, BWIA and ALM all offering passes encouraging a degree of island-hopping on 6- to 30-seat planes giving breathtaking views of the islands. Island-hopping by sea is a limited option, although good links exist between dependencies, eg St Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago. As for travelling around individual islands, hotels often offer daytrips, otherwise buses are cheap but their scheduling is not always very extensive. Car-hire is usually your best option. The roads on most of the islands we feature are actually quite good, give or take the odd pothole. (Signposts are another matter, so we recommend an ordnance survey map if possible, although if you do get lost, just hopping out asking directions can be part of the fun). Car-hire is reasonably priced and a good, independent way to see a lot of the islands. Jeeps are also available for rougher road surfaces (some of the hills are quite steep). Taxis also represent good value, especially with local drivers keen to share their knowledge of their home.

    Travel arrangements

    Flight time to the Caribbean is about 8 or 9 hours, depending on which island you fly in to. Antigua is the closest international hub from the UK, and many flights to but there are direct scheduled flights to dozens of destinations throughout the Caribbean run by British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and British Midland.
