If you could make any wish come true, what would it be? How about arriving at your hotel and discovering your room has an amazing view. Sipping a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine from your balcony is one of life’s sweetest pleasures.
The islands of Antigua, Eleuthera, Puerto Rico, St. Lucia, and St. Martin offer unique glimpses of oceanfront paradise. If you’re in the mood for a blissful COVID escape, let’s savor five balcony settings that look, feel, and sound like a vacation dream come true.
Hermitage Bay in Antigua
When staying at Hermitage Bay in Antigua, your balcony features a wraparound deck that oozes panoramic luxury. Each of Hermitage Bay’s 30 suites open to sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea. One Hermitage guest said it best, “Hermitage Bay is the rare gem that exceeds all expectations.”
The Cove Resort, in Eleuthera, Bahamas
The Cove Resort on Eleuthera in the Bahamas delivers the perfect escape for the vacationer looking to experience authentic Caribbean luxury. Cove’s western exposure means epic sunsets. Sipping a cocktail from your Cove deck while the sun is going down is a memory you won’t soon forget.
Condado Vanderbilt in Puerto Rico
The L-shaped terrace framing your Condado Vanderbilt Commodore suite is an exercise in elevation. Located high above the Atlantic Ocean, your balcony view is a wondrous mix of fresh-air spaciousness, exquisite architecture, and soothing ocean waves. Oh yes, you’ll also enjoy around-the-clock butler service.
Ladera Resort in St. Lucia
Nowhere on earth will you find balconies quite like the ones at Ladera Resort in St. Lucia. Not only is there no exterior wall separating your bed from the great outdoors, as a Ladera VIP you coexist with two volcanos. A Ladera vacation means experiencing a 1,000-feet above sea level balcony view that’s as close to nature as you’ll ever imagine.
L’Esplanade Resort in St. Martin
Staying in one of L’Esplanade’s 24 suites is like discovering romance heaven. This quaint resort sits high on a hill on St. Martin’s renowned French side. The resort’s supreme vantage point delivers birds-eye views of a petite airplane landing strip, a marina that lights up at night, and a seascape that’s as picturesque as it is turquoise. L’Esplanade’s balconies are wrapped in bougainvillea, and guests gaze at a cavalcade of gardens, fountains, and the Caribbean Sea.
