“Experiential travel” is one of the biggest buzz words in the industry right now, as more and more travelers look to get out beyond their hotel rooms, explore their destinations and immerse themselves in local destinations. We’ve always advocated for that – for connecting in a deeper way with the Caribbean. Having said that, sometimes you want to find a place for a blissful, stress-free vacation, where you can escape the bustle and find your own private sanctuary. Thankfully, the Caribbean is also the perfect place for that. 

We’ve gathered some of our favorite “relaxing” hotels in the Caribbean, hotels that have that extra degree of serenity, where quiet isn’t just reserved for a special adults-only corner of the resort: it’s pervasive. 

Here are 15 great relaxing hotels for your next Caribbean vacation.

Harbour Village Beach Club, Bonaire Bonaire’s top luxury resort is almost impossibly serene: 44 rooms in a lushly-landscaped, residential-style setting on the most picturesque private beach in Bonaire. You feel it the moment you walk through the gate: this is a place for endless, sublime quiet. It just might be the most relaxing hotel in the Caribbean.
