’Tis the season to claim your spot on a Caribbean beach for fall. These luxury villa rentals now part of Haute Retreats have our vote.
Many of us have been cautious for the last two years about Caribbean travel. (Is that sea of protocols worth it for a week?) The regulatory gauntlet is now mostly gone, and, right on cue, there are fresh places to stay. (In addition to the five below, keep in mind Anguilla’s gorgeous Cap Juluca, completely renovated in 2018 when it became a Belmond property—it just gets better. And its beach? To die for.)
