Resort Season 2019: Top Island Destinations
The Seychelles’ brand of barefoot luxury is that bit wilder, more elemental, than its similarly Eden-esque neighbors, the Maldives and Mauritius. Primeval jungle fringes white-coral sand; postcard-blue surf pounds dramatic black rocks. The Indian Ocean archipelago zealously lends itself to castaway fantasies: local lore about buried treasure and haunted sea caves abound. But paradise comes at a price: marooned 1,600km off Africa’s east coast, reaching this remote refuge can be an ordeal without proper planning.
After Hurricane Irma hit the the island of St. Barth last winter, the island has bounced back in a big way and they are officially open for business again. St. Barths has an irresistible appeal for travelers from around the world, and jetsetters and lovers of St. Barth all congregate on the small island to enjoy the winter months in style.
Magellan Jets’ partnership with the passionate, knowledgeable team of villa specialists at St. Barth Properties ensures clients will experience the very best that the new St. Barth has to offer with their St. Barth Jetaway package.
Set in one of the most beautiful, undisturbed places in the world, this private isle of white-powdered beaches and winding bicycle paths is a one-of-a-kind hideaway. Visitors of the island must to fly into Antigua first as the island is only accessible by boat. The resort is excited to welcome guests to Jumby Bay for a truly one-of-a-kind experience in a refreshed new design.
In Canggu, boho Bali is reborn and you might call it ‘Brooklyn-On-Sea’. Tanned hotdeskers tap at MacBooks in airy cafes serving vegan breakfast bowls and cold-pressed espressos; come sundown, they’re mixing hibiscus martinis with old-school hip-hop at laid-back beach club The Lawn.
Canouan Island, St. Vincent and The Grenadines
While those with deep pockets waited for St. Barth to fully recover, under-the-radar Canouan Island, one of nine inhabited islands in St. Vincent and The Grenadines, became a ready alternative. It recently added the five-star Pink Sands Club, Mandarin Oriental’s first foray into the Caribbean. The resort opened last year; since then, the new Glossy Bay Marina, one of the first in the region for superyachts, has joined it.
On the U.S. Virgin Island of St. Croix, which was largely spared by Irma but hit hard by Maria, the blue of the water finally overpowers the blue of the roofs once again. Ninety percent of all businesses have reopened and power has been restored. The island’s oldest hotel, The Buccanneer, which played a vital role in post-storm rehabilitation efforts by housing relief workers for months, is fully operational, and the first new hotel in 31 years, The Fred, is welcoming visitors to Frederiksted. Restaurants from Savant and Balter to Zion and the new Uptown Eatery even came together in early April to celebrate the island’s culinary scene with the St. Croix Food and Wine Experience — fittingly, this year, themed “Resiliency in Action.”
