It seems like a new all-inclusive resort pops up every week in the Caribbean, and it’s true that the vast majority of adults-only resorts in the islands follow a pay-one-price model for rooms, activities, and dining.

But it’s not a recipe that works for every couple. All-inclusives tend to be larger hotels, for example, and while most offer a wide variety of options for food and fun, some couples prefer a more intimate vacation experience and the freedom to get off the resort and dine and play locally. Here are a dozen small and boutique resorts that know how to pamper adults while the kids stay back home; they’re adults-only, EP hotels.

Ladera Resort, St. Lucia

You can’t get much closer to St. Lucia’s iconic Pitons than the Ladera resort — in fact the resort is within the UNESCO World Heritage site that protects the twin mountains rising from the Caribbean on the island’s west coast. With private plunge pools three-sided rooms open to the sea breezes and views from 1,000 feet above the waves, guests — particularly honeymooners — can be forgiven for venturing out only for meals at the resort’s Dasheene restaurant.
