No doubt you have heard about St. Thomas as one of the best Caribbean vacation destinations of the world, especially if you’re wanting to go scuba diving or snorkeling. With the marine preserve right in the midst of this island, it makes for an underwater experience you will never forget. Plus, you can enjoy all of the amenities that a Caribbean vacation has to offer you and your family. But, where are you going to stay? Well, the name Ritz Carlton rings a bell with anyone unless you have been living under a rock, and the Ritz Carlton St Thomas Resort is definitely the best choice available on the island.
The only downside to this specific Ritz Carlton is if you’re used to the splendor of the Ritz when it comes to food service, it is lacking in comparison with similar Ritz Carlton resorts at other destinations. However, this is nothing to offset your vacation plans, as you’re not in this big city expecting five star cuisine but instead wanting to enjoy the vacation paradise that you came to experience right?
Now, as for everything else about this resort, imagine the marble flooring and the rich splendor that abounds as you would expect from staying at a top-of-the-line resort. The chandeliers are marvelous, and their are unique decorations, antique furniture and decor and all the luxurious amenities you could possible ever imagine.
The resort in competition with the Ritz would be the Frenchman’s Reef Marriott. While the Marriott is another well-known name in the hospitality industry, there are specific points in which the Ritz beats its competition hands down. For starters, the location is much better as you would notice upon arrival. Next, the rooms, balconies, drinks available and the whole beach experience are just simply not matched by the competitor.
Understanding that the main selling point for many travelers to the Virgin islands is the experience with the marine life preserve, this is what makes the Ritz Carlton the premier destination of St. Thomas. No doubt you will be surrounded by the best exotic atmosphere and all kinds of different trees, including the African Sausage tree. The beach is a short walk away, and sometimes the employees are even able to offer you a quick ride on a golf cart when available. Jewel and gift stores are readily available and conveniently located, and there are 180 guest rooms. A reception area and staff are on hand to help you find everything you need and to help you with any questions that may arise. Enjoy your stay!
