Certificate of Excellence
"We are heartbroken by the devastation caused to the Island of St John and the USVI following the Category 5 Hurricane Irma on September 6, 2017, and then exacerbated by Category 4 Hurricane Maria on September 19th. Unfortunately, Caneel Bay Resort was also devastated and while we are happy to report all our employees survived the storm, Caneel Bay Resort did not. Sadly, it is impossible to open through the end of 2018." Set on a 170-acre peninsula amid the lush beauty of the Virgin Islands National Park and seven picturesque beaches, Caneel Bay is one of the most breathtaking vacation destinations in the Caribbean.

Five star resort in one of the most beautiful settings, right in the middle of Virgin Islands National Park. Low key and unplugged, a chance to step away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Add to that some of the most beautiful beaches...More
