Barbados , Caribbean In the pink

One place that will have you wishing you could call this island home is the Fairmont Royal Pavilion , with its 72 newly renovated rooms that open onto the beach, and have a modern, airy feel. Located on the desirable west coast, it’s the perfect spot from which to launch a private-hire catamaran to swim with the turtles. The muted pink of the exterior mimics the hue of the stunning coral- flecked sand on Crane Beach, and makes a photogenic backdrop for the lush green grounds, in which you can enjoy daily complimentary yoga classes.

St . Bar thélemy, Caribbean ROCK SOLID One of the Caribbean’s most iconic hotels, Eden Rock has just reopened its doors following an extensive two-year revamp. The overhaul has resulted in new rooms and suites, a new bar and restaurant, and a new spa—the work of owner Jane Matthews, Architectonik St Barths and Martin Brudnizki Design Studio (its first project in the Caribbean.) All rooms have been given a fresh look while three new rooms have been built on top of the Sand Bar area. There are also three additional suites, two with private swimming pools. If privacy and seclusion are on your vacation wishlist, three new villas await: Villa Rockstar with six suites, Villa Frangipani and the new Villa Nina both with three. All are located directly on the beach. Jean-Georges Vongerichten continues to oversee the dining at the Sand Bar, inspired by his ABC Kitchen & Jojo restaurants. There’s a new beach bar too, complete with a “Frosé” trolley.
