No place on earth is farther from the world's cares than Caneel Bay, where clear sapphire waters kiss the golden sands of seven beaches, and native plants cover the hills in riotous color. Nestled within the lush and lavish grounds are 166 charming guestrooms, each featuring truly marvelous views of the resort's landscapes or wondrous beaches.
Relax as cool ocean breezes whisper through the plantation shutters and the discerning staff attends to your every need. Succumb to the charms of the Caribbean moon while enjoying a romantic dinner at one of Caneel's three restaurants. Perched high on a panoramic peninsula, Turtle Bay offers an inspired menu of classical and creative American cuisine served against a backdrop of ethereal beauty. At the Equator, every evening is celebrated with passionate flair. Within the dramatic stone and coral ruins of this enchanted 18th-century sugar mill, guests enjoy an intriguing menu of eclectic cuisine while a glorious paprika sun sets over the water.
The resort features such leisure activities as water sports, tennis, shopping, sunset cruises, massages, hiking and island tours. Children are entertained at Turtle Town while adults restore mind and body balance at the Self Centre.
