Caribbean Room With a View: The Best Vistas in St Thomas

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - October 12, 2014

THERE ARE GREAT hotel views across the Caribbean: quiet beaches, shaking palm trees, green hills.

Some, though, are truly jaw-dropping.

That’s the case at the Frenchman’s Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort, where the views are the stars of the show.


At every nearly every corner of the 478-room property, from the pool to the lobby bar to the guestrooms, you can enjoy breathtaking scenery of the natural beauty of St Thomas and its surrounding islands and islets.


That’s even more true at one of the property’s larger suites, like the duplex Ambassador Suite we checked out on a recent visit to the island.


The views are so spectacular that the property has even offered guests the option of choosing their view before they book, with a virtual website featuring 15-second videos of “island,” “water” and “garden” and “beach” views. (


But at this property, it’s easy to choose wisely.
