When it comes time to take a vacation alone, with your partner, or with a group of friends, a resort that caters specifically to adults only may be the best option for you.
There’s a wide selection of adults only resorts in the Caribbean featuring a la carte specialty restaurants, entertainment programs just for adults, and tranquil environment and beaches. We chose seven Caribbean adults only resorts where you can indulge in luxury and tranquility:
1. Ladera Resort, St Lucia
The only resort located on a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ladera Resort was part of the Rabot Estate, a cocoa plantation in Soufriere, St. Lucia. The resort is set on 1,000 feet above sea level on a volcano ridgeline about a 45-minute drive from the Hewanorra International Airport (UVF).
