The Caribbean’s roster of high-design, forward-thinking, fun-loving hotels continues to grow. 

Everyone has a different definition of what’s cool — particularly when it comes to hotels. 

But a cool hotel should have an x-factor, a special quality that turns it into something more than just a collection of rooms — whether that’s from the way it looks, the way it sounds or the way it feels. 

Our eighth annual edition of the Cool List takes you on a journey across the Caribbean, with some hotels you may know and a host of hidden-away gems just begging to be discovered. 

Here is the 2020 edition of the CJ Cool List. 

The Fred, St Croix St Croix’s first new hotel in decades has injected major new energy into the heart of Frederiksted, and this playful, hip boutique continues to raise its game. The adults-only hotel has everything from a spa to a great stretch of beach to some of the most avant-garde decor you’ll see in the Caribbean Even better, it’s the perfect gateway to one of the buzziest destinations in the Caribbean, an island with a thriving culinary scene, beautiful beaches and a funky, forward-thinking vibe. It all adds up to our favorite “cool” hotel for 2020.
