For small and intimate, Cobblers Cove is a colonial-style gem that combines British savior faire with Caribbean island cool on a pristine beach. Set among lavish gardens, 44 charming suites feature separate living areas and folding doors that lead to large patios with panoramic views. A warm atmosphere and exceptional service keep their clients coming back, as does Camelot — considered one of the finest restaurants on Barbados. Perks include free water sports (including water skiing), afternoon tea in the Great House, and twice daily maid to name just a few.
Surrounded by coral reefs, Barbados is a gorgeous travel destination, with rich history. The island has recently been awarded UNESCO heritage status. I can arrange custom tours for my clients to many historical sites, including plantation homes not usually open to the public and can also arrange for a tour of the island from the water aboard a catamaran. There are also several fabulous golf courses on the island.

Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort, St. Lucia

When I imagine myself lying on the spectacular Sugar Beach property, wellness and beauty come to mind first. Located on the west coast of St. Lucia, the property rests on 100 acres of lush tropical rainforest. Imagine walking onto the property to be served champagne by your own butler on an open-air relaxation gazebo suspended over running water at the base of the Petit Piton. The spa welcomes you in and the elevated bridges lead to seven custom treehouses located in the jungle surrounded by waterfalls filling natural plunge pools.
