Island w/easy flight from Charlotte - luxury hotel and great snorkeling?

Jump to last reply

We are traveling for the first time in a VERY long time without our children for my husband's 50th birthday. We are recent West Coast transplants and have spent a lot of time in the Hawaiian islands, loving Maui best hands down. I've never been to the Caribbean and have no idea where to go. We have a sitter secured and can travel next week. Here's our wishlist:

Luxury hotel with a beachfront room up to $800/night

Easy flight from Charlotte (CLT) we have enough miles on US Air or Delta to get just about anywhere they fly. We only have 4 days so I don't want to spend a lot of time plane hopping.

We love to snorkel and have our own gear. We don't like boat trips and prefer to get right out from the beach.

Being June I need AC at night.

Privacy and room to breathe! I don't want to get up at 6AM to secure a lounger. Our past trips we've rented a house in Makena on Maui but I don't want to cook this time. We love end of the road, feel like you're on a deserted island feel. We don't smoke or feel the need to get wasted on vacation. I like the lush tropical feel of Maui. Past hotels we've enjoyed have been 4 Seasons, Ritz Carletons, Montage in Laguna Beach, Grand Wailea etc.

Many thanks to anyone who is able to point us in the right direction! So far I've gone blind researching Jamaica, St Lucia, St. Martin, St John etc. I also looked at Turks & Caicos but I'm a little freaked out by their current norovirus outbreak.
