My wife told me she wanted to go somewhere warm while she was on vacation. I found a great package on Expedia for the Ritz Carlton, St. Thomas. Booked it on a Monday and we left Wednesday.
From the moment you check in and walk out to the balcony and look out at the Mediterranean inspired architecture, the stress starts falling off. The property is beautiful. The rooms are what you would expect at a Ritz Carlton. Our room was on the ground floor of one of the outer buildings facing St. Johns. We could step out on the terrace and stare out at St Johns and just chill.
The infinity edge pool is outstanding! My wife normally doesn't go into pools, but she couldn't resist getting on a float and enjoying the water.
Beware: If you have a cocktail with fruit in it for decoration, the iguanas will RUN to get the fruit.
While we were there, I booked a dinner for two on the beach. It was wonderful. We were the only people on the beach that night, with our own server. Champagne, the starts, good food and the sound of waves lapping on the beach. Good times.
As one would expect, the staff at the RC is the best. All you had to do was ask and it was done.
Book a trip to the Ritz Carlton St. Thomas.
