Now Taking Bookings: The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas

According to MMGY Global’s Portrait of American Travelers 2019-2020 study, the Caribbean is the second-most sought-after destination for American travelers looking to take a vacation in the next 12 months. Of all the island destinations, the U.S. Virgin Islands showed the second-most interest (following The Bahamas).

The good news? After a closure following Hurricanes Irma and Maria in September 2017, The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas is now accepting reservations for stays starting this December. The $100 million refurbishment includes completely redesigned public spaces, guestrooms and suites, dining venues and meetings and events space.

Located on 30 acres on the eastern tip of the island, The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas will be sporting a new white palette with splashes of color inspired by the sea and a renovated landscape filled with tropical plant life. The resort’s 180 guestrooms and suites will also have the same, lighter and brighter palette.

Other property highlights will include a remodeled infinity pool and a second pool with a slide for families. A new Sicilian restaurant, Alloro, has been added to the resort’s culinary offerings, serving Sicilian dishes. (Addition restaurants include Bleuwater, a fine dining restaurant; Coconut Cove, a beachfront spot with local cuisine; and Sails, located near the pool, it served light fare and cocktails.)

Good to know: The resort’s luxury catamaran, Lady Lynsey, is returning—in a way. The brand-new Lady Lynsey II is a 60-foot vessel, which is longer than the original and now accommodates up to 75 guests. It will offer snorkeling tours, sunset dinner cruises and island-hopping excursions.
