Paradise Found: Ocean Suites Situated on Shores of Bliss

Posted November 16, 2023 in Travel by Ashleigh King

Escape the winter blues with a yachting vacation in The Bahamas or the Caribbean and be sure to work in a few luxuriant nights on land – even staunch seafarers will swoon for these stationary retreats.

Jonquil Suite
Cap Juluca, A Belmond Hotel, Anguilla

Combining Caribbean comfort with refined style, Cap Juluca is a firm favorite among East Coast jet setters. With its privileged position overlooking a private stretch of beach along Maundays Bay, its white-washed domed villas are an iconic sight and something of an island emblem. A selection of beachfront suites are situated some distance away from the Main House for privacy, including a Beachfront Five Bedroom Pool Villa and the Jonquil Suite. At 3,000 square feet, the suite has two master bedrooms, a living area, a private infinity pool and an oceanfront terrace, making it ideal for couples or friends. But the view is the highlight – stretching across the white sands of Maundays Bay all the way to neighboring St. Maarten and your next port of call.

Villa du Pêcheur
Hotel Le Sereno, St. Barths

The chic, upscale hideaway Hotel Le Sereno is nestled on St. Barths’ Grand Cul-de-Sac – a turquoise lagoon that is also a protected nature reserve. The shallow waters of the lagoon are home to stingrays, turtles and brightly colored coral and fish for those looking to discover St. Barths’ underwater offerings. Ashore, however, the colors are equally vibrant – even the pool tiles have been chosen to match the color of the lagoon. Epitomizing understated luxury, the waterfront Villa du Pêcheur has its own private swimming pool, separate living area, two bathrooms and outdoor dining. When connected with two other Grand Suite Plage Sud rooms, the Villa du Pêcheur becomes the Village du Pêcheur – ideal for multi-generational families arriving by yacht and spending a few nights ashore on the most coveted island in the Caribbean.

Ocean View Suite
Jumby Bay Island, Antigua

Located two miles off the coast of Antigua, the 300-acre private island of Jumby Bay is one of the most exclusive resorts in the Caribbean; as such, its suite offerings do not disappoint. Having recently added to the collection, it’s hard to choose between the newly refurbished Beachside (opt for the private plunge pool) and Pool Suites, the Estate Suite or the brand-new Ocean View Suites. The latter nautical-inspired suites combine the styles of both
contemporary and traditional beach houses with lofty ceilings, wide verandas and open-air bathrooms – perfectly encapsulating the indoor/outdoor lifestyle that is integral to the Caribbean. Just steps from the beach, the spacious new Junior Suites and Family Suites offer uninterrupted views of the Caribbean Sea. The Family Suite benefits from a private pool, while the Junior Suite offers an indoor/outdoor shower with a soaking tub.

Seahorse Suite
Saba Rock, BVI

Set on a one-acre plot in the North Sound of Virgin Gorda, Saba Rock is an iconic overnight stop for the yachting crowd. Known for its playful spirit, the oceanfront resort has an easy-going vibe, while the contemporary aesthetic features a fresh take on the island’s nautical lifestyle. Embracing color with bright pops of cerulean blues and crimson reds, the resort’s nine stylish guest rooms are all designed with contemporary aesthetic features that celebrate the island’s rich sailing history. With 3,100 square feet of living and terrace space, the Seahorse Suite features floor-to-ceiling windows providing a 180-degree view of North Sound.

The Cove Penthouse Suite
The Cove at Atlantis, Bahamas

Set on its own peninsula within the family-friendly Atlantis Paradise Island, guests can play at Atlantis and retreat to the sophisticated all-suite Cove to enjoy everything this resort has to offer. Sleek, contemporary décor and natural, earthy tones lend the sophisticated Cove a grown-up elegance. With first-class service and amenities to match, guests can relax on the white sands of the two private beaches, soak up the atmosphere at the exclusive adults-only Cove Pool, unwind in a private beach-side cabana, enjoy poolside gaming or escape to the award-winning Mandara Spa. Reserved for the most selective guests, The Cove’s Penthouse Suites occupy a single-story enclave overlooking the Caribbean waters and beyond. With a two- and three-bedroom option, they make the perfect setting for groups of friends or families.

The Artists Villa
Amanyara, Turks & Caicos

With some of the most stunning beaches in the world, the Turks and Caicos islands have become an alternative winter cruising ground for the superyacht crowd. Tucked away on the far northwestern side of the archipelago, Amanyara is home to a number of uber-luxury villas and pavilions with spacious suites. Opt for the five-bedroom Artists Villa – Amanyara’s signature villa. The five bedrooms include a master suite, three additional en suites and one bedroom that can accommodate five single beds for larger families. The vast outdoor space features numerous lounges, sundecks and alfresco dining spots leading to a 108’-long infinity pool, beyond which lies a private stretch of beach.
