Insider Tip
  • For a surcharge, the staff of Equator Restaurant sets a table in the sugar-mill ruins, dresses it with white linen, lights tiki torches nearby, and serves a private dinner under the stars.
Hotel Overview
  • Secluded peninsula
    Set within the Virgin Islands National Park on St. John, the resort features seven powder-white beaches on a secluded peninsula.
  • Peaceful setting
    Instead of televisions, radios, or telephones, 166 rooms provide tranquil views of lush gardens and azure blue seas.
  • Caribbean cuisine
    Caribbean specialties are served at a restaurant atop the ruins of an 18th-century sugar mill, and casual fare is served beachside.
What to Expect:
  • Set on its own peninsula and bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, Caneel Bay Resort is part of the Virgin Islands National Park, providing rest and rejuvenation in harmony with nature. Known as a retreat for celebrities and others seeking relief from stress, the resort emphasizes privacy and tranquility. A degree of gentility prevails: men are asked to wear long pants (or dress shorts), collared shirts, and closed-toe shoes (no athletic shoes) after dark. Loyal guests return yearly to be greeted by long-time staff members, and "Good morning," "good afternoon," and "good evening" are expected by all.
Amenity Highlights:
  • Seven beaches fringe the resort's peninsula and provide snorkeling opportunities. Six are private; two are adults-only. A -long, irregularly shaped freshwater pool is flanked by thickly cushioned lounge chairs isolated near tennis courts. Dining choices range from buffets to fine dining with piano music in an air-conditioned setting where men customarily wear jackets.
