Less than 15 years ago, the island of Vieques was used as a bombing range by the US Navy. When the military withdrew from the otherwise untouched tropical paradise, it appeared on the radar of adventurous vacationers. The sprawling W Retreat & Spa is a luxurious, yet laid back resort on the island’s north coast nestled between fishing villages.
Star treatment begins the minute planes touchdown at Vieques Airport where coffee, cocktails and snacks welcome visitors in the exclusive W Lounge. From there, private Jeeps usher guests to the resort.
The property has a hip beach house vibe decorated with reclaimed wood, brass and bohemian furniture in shades of red, purple and aquamarine. While DJs pump techno music through the neon-lit common areas, guest rooms are a quiet sanctuary of plush Egyptian bedding and private balconies overlooking the sea or landscaped gardens. Steel bath tubs, rainfall showers and overstuffed armchairs make each room an oasis. Upgraded rooms include indulgences like dining tables for six, panoramic ocean views and separate living rooms.
Surrounded by palm trees, the restaurant and bi-level infinity pools look out over one of the properties two private beaches. The second is adults-only and set in a secluded corner of the resort for maximum intimacy. Yoga classes are held on the outdoor terrace and guests can perfect their backhand on the tennis courts. The hotel features a fitness center and the Away Spa has numerous treatment cabanas with private outdoor showers. Bold explorers can book boat tours, rent Jeeps or schedule excursions through the concierge.
At sunset, guests gather at the cliff-top fire pit for cocktails before dining on Caribbean cuisine at WET or Sorcé.
