Luxury. It’s one of the most overused words in the travel industry; but that’s also because it’s just so hard to define. What makes luxury? Is it design? Is it food and beverage? Is it the natural environment? Is it service? 

The answer is, of course, that it’s all of those things, and more. But when it comes to deciding which resorts do luxury best, well, to paraphrase Justice Potter Stewart, you know it when you see it. 

Ultimately, luxury is about the way a resort engages with you, with your personality, with your tastes. It’s about the way a resort makes you feel.

Compiling our annual list of the best luxury resorts in the Caribbean is one our editorial team’s most difficult feats of each year — with so many great luxury properties around the Caribbean, choosing just 10 is a tall order. 

All of the following resorts have the amenities: the world-class spas, the eateries, the sparkling design.

But these 10 resorts have something more; they exemplify the best of luxury, particularly that unique Caribbean brand of luxury that has no analog the world over. 

Here are the best luxury resorts in the Caribbean to visit in 2022. 

The main pool, with the magical Versailles Gardens in the background.

The Ocean Club, a Four Seasons Resort, The Bahamas The Ocean Club first opened its doors on Paradise Island in 1962; while it’s carried several different brands, most recently Four Seasons, the essence of the place has never changed. From the glorious terraced Versailles gardens to the marvelously manicured grounds and the magnificent service, this is simply as good as it gets anywhere in the region. And while the serenity here is unmatched, you’re wonderful close both to the amenities at nearby Atlantis, a short ride from the sights and sounds of downtown Nassau and a quick shuttle to one of the most beautiful golf courses in all of the Caribbean.
