As we turn our attention from hot summer days to cold winter blues, spruce up your cold days with a well-deserved vacation in a sun-filled destination. And if you’re wondering where to go, we suggest going to one of these destinations with the best hotel infinity pools in the Caribbean.
1. Ladera Resort St Lucia
Fly into Hewanorra International Airport (UVF) in St Lucia and head straight to Ladera Resort, the only resort in St. Lucia located on a UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s a 15-mile drive from the airport and only a 10-minute drive from Soufriere, a town on the west coast of St. Lucia.
Whether you’re relaxing in your suite, at the restaurant or the infinity pool, you’ll get the gorgeous views of the Pitons, the Caribbean Sea and the tropical forests. There won’t be another infinity pool in the Caribbean where you can sip your cocktail, relax in the warm waters and admire the two volcanic plugs – Gros Piton and Petit Piton rising 1,000 feet above the Caribbean Sea.

This adult-only, eco-friendly resort offers 37 rooms and suites where all the suites are designed with only three walls and have a private plunge pool. You’ll get views of the Pitons and the Caribbean.
2. Park Hyatt St Kitts
Located on Banana Bay, and only a 10-minute boat ride (two and a half miles) from Nevis, Park Hyatt St Kitts is luxurious and isolated – a great place to get away from it all.
Besides enjoying the family-friendly lagoon pool – a kid’s pool, Park Hyatt provides The Rampart – the adult-only infinity pool decorated with arches that look like the arches of Brimstone Hill Fortress in St. Kitts. This hotel won’t disappoint if you’re looking for a hotel with ample swimming and relaxing spots. The bonus is the stunning view of Nevis Peak enveloped by clouds and of course the blue waters too.
Daily flights are available from Miami to St Kitts’ Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport (SKB).
3. The Crane, Barbados
The Crane is the oldest continually operating hotel in the Caribbean. Started in 1887 this massive hotel complex has four pools – three inter-connected pools and an infinity pool. Head over to the infinity pool for the glittering expanse of the ocean.
This resort is only 15 minutes from the Grantly Adams International Airport and just minutes away to the soft pink sand.
4. Casa Colonial Beach and Spa, The Dominican Republic
For a relaxing stay without the crowds, book a stay at the Casa Colonial Beach and Spa at Playa Dorada, Puerto Plata. This 50-guest suite beach hotel’s infinity pool is tucked away on the rooftop. You can idle in the pool practically all day. It’s open 24 hours offering you time to relax early in the morning before sunrise or in the evening during sunset.
Aqua Bar (not 24 hours) is located by the infinity pool. You can lounge on the chaise and enjoy cocktails in the sun or under an umbrella.
The closest airport to Playa Dorada is Gregorio Luperon International Airport (POP) in Puerto Plata.
5. Renaissance Aruba, Aruba
The Renaissance Aruba consists of the adult-only Renaissance Marina and the family-oriented Renaissance Ocean Suites. It’s massive, but guests can relax at the stylish rooftop infinity pool and swim away from all the stresses of life. It’s undoubtedly one of the best infinity pools in Aruba.
A bonus is guests can hop on a water taxi to the resort’s private island.
6. Condado Vanderbilt Puerto Rico
Do it in style when vacationing in Puerto Rico. Stay at the historic Condado Vanderbilt Hotel, a Spanish Revival style hotel built in 1919. This restored luxury hotel still has a grand old staircase. But go straight to the chaise lounges by the infinity pool for a magnificent view of the Atlantic Ocean and the ultimate relaxation in the Caribbean.
Puerto Rico is the most accessible Caribbean island to get to from the US. Americans don’t need a passport. Going to Puerto Rico is like traveling to another city in America.
7. Royalton Blue Waters Resort, Jamaica
Royalton Blue Waters resort is a family-friendly oceanfront resort with two freshwater pools – an infinity pool and a lazy river pool. It shares its facilities with Royalton White Sand Resort, located next door.
Located in Montego Bay, at the north coast of Jamaica, Royalton Blue Waters is the place to be for a luxurious tropical escape.
Fly into Sangster International Airport (MBJ) in Montego Bay. The airport is about 22 miles from the airport.
