Winter often calls for a week or two on a beach. Like many families, you may have had to cancel planned 2020 trips and are eager to get your toes in the sand!
Of course right now, the desire for personal space and flexible booking conditions rank even higher than the need for a dose of sun.
Right now, we’re helping extended families who have been separated for months come together in a remote beach destination where they can feel safe and reconnect.
And on the other end of the spectrum, we’re helping parents plan beach getaways (sans kiddos!) for a much needed opportunity to rest and recover from 2020.
Overwhelmingly these travelers are asking for private villas or stand-alone residences that are part of a bigger resort. This is truly the best of both worlds – privacy and space with the amenities and service of a larger resort.
Here are 5 amazing spots to book now that check all the boxes for a safe, fun and warm getaway this winter!
Rosewood Little Dix Bay Virgin Gorda
Created by Laurance Rockefeller in 1964, this 500-acre garden paradise is situated along the crystal clear waters of the British Virgin Islands on lush Virgin Gorda. Pretty much the definition of Barefoot Luxury, Rosewood Little Dix Bay has just reopened after a massive renovation.
Designed to blend in with the landscape, the rooms are nestled among sea grape trees and bougainvillea and not visible from the water, ensuring ultimate privacy.
Priced From: $1,500 per night, 30% off all suites and villas Booking Terms: Cancel by 4pm, 24 hours prior to arrival to avoid penalty or forfeiture of deposit
The Palms Turks and Caicos
The Palms on the island of Providenciales in Turks and Caicos is just steps away from the flawless white sands and sparkling sapphire waters of the Grace Bay Beach – ranked as among the most beautiful in the world.
On Turks in general you won’t find big crowds, and will enjoy plenty of space along the wide beaches.
Priced From: $399 per night for a mid-week arrivalBooking Terms: Cancel up to 10 days before arrival with no penalty
GoldenEye overlooks the Caribbean Sea in the quiet village of Oracabessa Bay on Jamaica’s north coast. Built by the novelist Ian Fleming as his Jamaican retreat, GoldenEye is where Fleming wrote all 14 James Bond novels.
Today, GoldenEye is an award-winning Island Outpost hotel owned by Chris Blackwell, the Jamaica-raised founder of Island Records. So expect great music and a super hip vibe.
Here each room is a suite, ranging from charming, thatch-roofed “huts” to luxurious 3 bedroom villas – all just steps to the beach!
Priced From: $715 per nightBooking Terms: Cancel up to 15 days before arrival with no penalty
Sailling Charter in Belize
Belize tends to fly a bit under the radar as a sailing destination, however the country’s coastline is best explored by water! While destinations in the Caribbean are generally booked up over peak dates well in advance (yes even during covid), we can usually find yachts to charter with less lead time in Belize. Here we can also do a 5 night sail charter (vs the most common 7 night).
Priced From: $1,200 per night Booking Terms: Change dates for any reason up to 14 days before departure (must book flexible rate plan for this flexible coverage)
Isla Palenque Panama
This remote island in Panama is truly unspoiled by man and unchanged by time. Set amidst 400-acres of enchanting jungle in the Gulf of Chiriquí, this luxury beachfront resort is quite possibly the perfect spot to recharge and socially distance.
Priced From: $980 per night, includes all meals and drinksBooking Terms: Cancel up to 30 days prior to arrival with no penalty, after that a credit will be issued and can be used for a later date.
At each of these properties we have access to exclusive amenities, upgrades and more. And now more than ever we highly suggest purchasing travel insurance to protect your health and safety while traveling as well as your investment in the trip.
