There is no dearth of decadent resorts in the Caribbean, and so it's a pleasure to find one that stands apart from the rest. Even better is to discover it in a destination untrammeled by tourists. Tucked into a quiet corner of the islands, the superlative Four Seasons Resort, Nevis is a place where the focus is solely on escaping the cares of daily life. Simply laying out by the infinity pool is an act of pure indulgence, as you're pampered with cold scented towels and refreshing water mistings. Or choose from an irrestible range of rejuvenating body treatments and a selection of massage therapies at the Spa.
Lavish guest rooms, estate homes and villas are just steps from the downy sands. Throw back the wooden shutters to views of Mount Nevis or the Robert Trent Jones II, signature golf course. From your bed you can gaze through a canopy of swaying palms out to the sea, and from your massage table you can listen to the sounds of the surf as you savor a treatment that reflects the island's natural rhythms. With its open air setting and regional cuisine, the restaurant captures the Caribbean's warm, tropical spirit.
