"This is the island’s one true luxury resort" -- Frommer’s
Rooms & Rates
With its ornate décor and large windows, the Venetian-style palazzo serves as the centerpiece of this Mediterranean-inspired resort. The grand outdoor staircases lead to lush gardens and pathways that take guests to the rooms, the pools and the beach. Spread over 30 acres of beachfront property, the expansive Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas has a secluded feel.
One of the most attractive things about this luxe resort is its location on a protected marine-life reserve, which allows guests to lounge on pristine beaches and spot aquatic animals just steps from the sand. As a member of Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment program, the resort has excursions for both children and adults focused around environmental education, such as island mangrove explorations, nighttime snorkeling and clear-bottom kayaking.
Sunbathers are pampered with pool and beachside drink service and views of the green hills jutting out from the turquoise water. Guests can relax at the spa, featuring 11 treatment rooms and a seaside cabana, or get energized in one of the on-site wellness classes such as yoga and Pilates. The family-friendly resort has two pools, an array of water sports, a kids club and its own 53-foot catamaran, which takes guests on both day and evening sailings.
There are four restaurants, each with varying styles and menus. Taste Caribbean-inspired dishes at the casual beachfront spot or take in ocean views and gourmet Italian fare at the upscale Essenza. The beautiful setting at Bleuwater restaurant allows guests to dine in the “elegant and expansive dining room or out on the waterfront patio under a sky peppered with stars” (Frommer’s).
