The U.S. Virgin Islands is just one of those places that people keep going back to. Maybe it’s the allure of the Caribbean, the natural beauty, the unique culture, or all of the above. Or maybe it’s the opportunity for indulgence – of the senses, and the mind, towards complete relaxation and pampering.

One of the best ways to indulge yourself in the U.S. Virgin Islands is with a luxurious stay at The Ritz-Carlton on St. Thomas. This five-star resort extravaganza presents the picture perfect Caribbean experience – endless white sand beaches, crystal clear turquoise waters, swaying palms – all while soaking up the sun and the hospitality that The Ritz-Carlton is known for.

Each generous sized guest room and suite at The Ritz-Carlton St. Thomas offers either a gorgeous resort or ocean view complete with a balcony or terrace that features West-Indies decor of soothing colors and dark woods. Amenities include oh-so-comfy king sized beds, marble bathroom, evening turn-down service, and 24-hour room service. The Club Level at The Ritz-Carlton St. Thomas offers the ultimate in privacy, rooms with expansive ocean views, a private Club Lounge, along with a dedicated Club Concierge to help fulfill your every desire.

Caribbean-inspired dining options at The Ritz-Carlton St. Thomas include their signature award-winning restaurant, Bleuwater; the Great Bay Lounge for perfectly prepared sushi; Coconut Grove Beach Bar & Grill or Sails for casual beach side dining.

A Kids Meal Package, including breakfast, lunch, & dinner, is available for children ages 12 and under for $29 per child, per day.

The pampering continues with the spa at Ritz-Carlton which offers eleven treatment rooms plus an open air cabana for those relaxing, calming, oceanfront massages. Enjoy four hours of tranquility including a seaside couples massage, a Hungarian signature herbal facial, foot and hand treatments, during the His and Hers Spa Getaway package. Another popular choice amongst guests is the four-hour Caribbean Treasured Sunset treatment package which includes a signature massage, facial, manicure, and pedicure.
