Loved FS Nevis and Ritz Virgin Is. where next?

Jump to last reply

Just got back from a awesome stay at FS Nevis last November. Friendliest people ever- we will go back for sure. Thanks Roamsaround and all the others for your help. PS good call on the sugar mill at Montpelier.

Trying to plan our next trip for next November or the week after Thanksgiving- about 6 nights.
For budget--- planning on using points/miles so looking for a 4/5star.

Definately like the full service luxury resort with amentities. Loved the layout of FS in Nevis and Ritz Virgins---lots of areas for go for runs in the mornings. Golf course in Nevis was amazing to run. Like the various buildings vs one free standing high rise hotel.
We have been to USVI and BVI, Nevis, Turks, Caymans, Bermuda, Abacos, Mexico both sides and Hawaii.

Really want a new island/resort so if anyone has any suggestions would love them. Flat or mountain ok.

This will be a relaxing vacations away from kids so want the following:
-a nice beach and full pool/beach service
-running trails would be nice
-good food (will probably eat at hotel mostly) but want the ability to be able to go out a few nights or maybe a lunch or two. For example in Nevis it was nice b/c we could walk down and have lunch at Lime, Sunshine, etc.
-will not be renting a car so will taxi
-sailboat excursion
-snorkling/scuba (I know Nevis was not known for snorkle compared to some of the other places we have been but we found that sail caona trip over to Shitten Bay in St. Kitts still fun and we saw some things we had not seen before).
-some nightlife or fun beach bars
-fly in on jet (hate lil prop planes)

Some new islands that peaked an interest Anguilla/St Martin (beach for me in Anguilla and a little more nightlife for hubbie in St. Martin), Barbados ?, Antigua (but not interested in all inclusive as we like to eat out on the island), Puerto Rico. Anything else?

I know there are some direct flights from Chicago to St. Thomas and Puerto Rico that time of year so that is somewhat apealing but not a deal breaker. Since we stayed at the Ritz before St. Thomas we could look at St. John (although not interested in Caneel- need to be WIFI connected and want a tv in the room). Westin maybe but anyone been there recently? Rooms look run down?

Thanks for your help.
