Private Pool

Nothing says hotel luxury like a private pool, and the folks behind the Jade Mountain Resort in St. Lucia have taken it to the next level by providing in-room private infinity pools, which look out onto the exotic island’s incredibly lush terrain — and, oh yeah, the Caribbean Sea. Whether it’s for a serious soak or just a little toe dip, this elusive spot makes swimming a seriously sexy activity. As Toy Story hero Buzz Lightyear says, “To infinity and beyond!”

If nothing else, the Jade Mountain Resort in St. Lucia boasts insanely gorgeous views. Braced against a mountain about 100 feet above the shore, and pointed at St. Lucia’s iconic Pitons (volcanic plugs), the boutique resort has just 29 rooms. Almost all of the enormous suites overlook the sea from chromatherapy-lit whirlpool tubs, canopied beds, and private infinity pools. And the service is pretty fabulous, too. Two “major domos” are assigned to each room –  staffers on-call from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. to cater to pretty much any need, no matter how obscure. It comes at a high price, but a stay at the Jade Mountain Resort – with its its organic cuisine, doting service, peaceful ambience (no TVs, radios, or children allowed), and amazing views — is worth the cost.
