Sun, sea and sand aren’t the only things you can enjoy on a Caribbean vacation. Beyond the beach lie remnants of a bygone era that remind us of where we’ve come from as a region, and even today influence where we’re going. But you don’t have to visit a fort or museum to get in touch with the Caribbean’s storied heritage. Just book a room at any of these legendary resorts, and enjoy a dose of history with your holiday. CJ Travel Editor Sarah Greaves-Gabbadon has the story.
Admiral’s Inn & Gunpowder Suites, Antigua In Nelson’s Dockyard, four 18th-century Georgian-style buildings, constructed from bricks that came as ballast on British ships, now form a 23-room hotel complete with modern touches that include an infinity pool and spa. (We’re particularly big fans of the “Boom” wing pictured above, complete with elevated pool). Find your room at the Admiral’s Inn.
