Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas Review
Everything sparkles at the island's most luxurious resort, from the in-room furnishings and amenities to the infinity pool, white-sand beach, and turquoise sea beyond. Spacious guest rooms, with high-speed Internet access, private balconies, and marble bathrooms with deep soaking tubs, are in buildings fanning out from the main building. Six somewhat institutional-looking buildings, with two- and three-bedroom condos, sit on their own adjacent beach. The spa, salon, and fitness center serve adults, both body and soul; the Ritz Kids program packs in a full day of activities for kids, including collecting seashells and feeding iguanas. A 54-foot catamaran is available for a day or sunset sail.
One of the island's most luxurious resorts is also one of the most family-friendly. This upscale hotel suits guests of all ages; youngsters stay busy with treasure hunts, crafts, and games at the supervised Ritz-Kids program, while adults can take a cruise on the hotel's catamaran, explore the blue waters by kayak or paddle boat, or just enjoy the view at the breathtaking infinity pool.
