The Best of the Best 2003: Resorts - Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas

The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas, located on the secluded eastern tip of the island, is like no other Ritz-Carlton. It consists of Mediterranean-style villas that contain more than 200 rooms, bubbling fountains, and hidden courtyards, spread throughout 30 acres. The resort exudes romance, offering rose-petal turndowns, candlelit dinners on the sand, massages on the beach, and sunset sails on its 53-foot catamaran, Lady Lynsey.

While the hotel is only six years old, a recent $75 million renovation added a spa with open-air cabanas, a fitness center, a beachfront restaurant serving inventive French-Caribbean cuisine, and 48 new guest rooms and suites, bringing the total to 200—intimate by Ritz standards. The exclusive Club Level Villa is also now available, featuring a concierge staff and access to an exclusive lounge.
