Whether you're looking to settle in and relax or enjoy some island hopping, the U.S. Virgin Islands boast plenty of luxurious or budget-friendly accommodation options to suit any taste or style. From luxury villas, chic hotels and a coterie of condominiums in between, St. Thomas offers an abundance of choices.
For those seeking more privacy with the comforts of home, luxury villas and estates have become a driving force of tourism to the Virgin Islands, and all four islands don’t disappoint when it comes to having plenty of gorgeous homes to select from. McLaughlin Anderson Luxury Villas was a frontrunner in bringing the villa rental business to the Caribbean and still manages the largest assortment of luxury homes across seven islands in the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. Larger commercial brands such as The Marriott Frenchman’s Reef, The Ritz-Carlton Resort, Wyndham Resorts: Bluebeards Beach Club, Elysian Beach Resort & Margaritaville Vacation Club, and Best Western Emerald Beach are all found on St. Thomas, while the Westin Resort and the famous Rockefeller resort Caneel Bay are on St. John – each being located on different parts of the islands and offering a wide array of amenities. Smaller boutique hotels and inns have become popular since the 90’s, but one family-owned beachfront resort – Bolongo Bay Beach Resort - has been around since the 70’s and is famous for their family-friendly nightly activities, music, entertainment and food. Condominium rentals abound across the island; search for names like Cowpet Bay, Crystal Cove, Mahogany Run, Pavilions and Pools, Sapphire Village, Secret Harbor, and Flamboyan on the Bay.
As nearly two-thirds of St. John have been designated as a National Park thanks to a generous gift from Nelson Rockefeller, it should come as no surprise that eco-friendly resorts and campgrounds can be found on this majestic island. You'll find Maho Bay and Cinnamon Bay Campgrounds on the scenic North side, with Concordia Eco-Resort located on the South shore near beautiful Coral Bay.
