resort with kitchens or healthy food options?

My husband and I considering a first trip to the Caribbean or Bahamas. It's important to us to be able to eat a healthy diet, so either a place with a kitchen or a resort that provides fresh, healthy food would be ideal. Preferably adults only. We're looking for a place to relax, maybe hike and bike a little. Does anyone have a favorite place that fits our needs?

Sorry, but this request is really far too vague. When are you traveling? From where? How much do you want to spend?

There are literally hundreds of places in the Caribbean with kitchens, so you need to give us a little more information so we can make some suggestions.

Cuisinart Resort in Anguilla, for instance, is known for excellent and healthy cuisine (it's a spa resort), but it can cost $900 or more per night for room only during high season.

At the other end of the spectrum, there are little efficiency apartments in Tortola that can rent for less than $200 per night, but they are pretty basic. Without some idea of your interests and needs in terms of a resort, it's very hard to make a useful recommendation.

Borderline on the Caribbean end of things, but we found Zoetry in the Riviera Maya to offer very good and very healthy food. They have an organic garden on site and are very unusual for an all inclusive resort. Not adult only but they really offer nothing for children so attract very few.

have not been but take a look at
in bahamas - eco resort.
as doug said every island has condos a/or villas with kitchens and most have good grocery stores. provo in t&c is known to have numerous condo style resorts.
you should note bahamas and provo may be a bit cool after xmas til say may. so price range? what do you want to do besides eat well?

Sorry to be vague. We will go either in February or April (depends on work schedule). Stay 4 - 6 nights. An efficiency or condo would be preferable. Looking for a place that's clean and comfortable, basic is fine. Convenient location (no car needed) for grocery store, swimming, maybe some hiking. Availability of bikes would be good but not a deal breaker. Not interested in fishing or partying. We want to rest, relax, read in the warm weather. Price range about 3,000.

Thanks for the links. Zoetry looks fabulous but out of price range. Tiamore is closer, but we would be happy with less.

Since this will be your first trip to the Caribean Iy suggest you do some basic research about the difference in the various islands. A common misconception among first timers is that all islands are essentially the same which is not at all the case. There are very big differences. There are big islands, small islads, lush islands, arid islands, French islands, British islands, Americanized islands, Old world islands, busy islands, quiet islands, islands with white sand beaches and some with dark sand and others with colors inbetween. Some offer lots of night life while others are quiet and laid back, some offer great snorkeling, others are eco-tourists delights, still others are noted for duty free shopping and some have scores of great restaurants. The differences go on and on but one thing remains constant NO ONE ISLAND HAS IT ALL!!!!

Go to the "Destinations" link at the top of this page, click through to the Caribbean, there you can read general descriptions of the major islands. After reading the material you should be able to narrow your choices down to one or two islands that most appeal to YOU. Once you select your destination you can look at the accomodations available on that island(s) that are in your price range.

You can then post specific questions about those resorts/hotels/condos/villas that interest you.

If you scroll through some recent posts you'll find the ones that get the most responses are those in which the writter gives lots of information about their likes, dislikes, where they are travelling from, how much effort they want to exert getting to/from their destination, their budget for airfare/lodging/food, etc. In other words the more you tell us the easier it is for us to steer you in the right direction.
