The Destination
Combine impossibly blue Caribbean waters with perfect white-sand beaches, toss every imaginable shade of green into the mix, and add a dash of molasses-colored rum to the pot. That's St. Croix, in the US Virgin Islands, and its kaleidoscope comes through at every turn, from the vibrantly colored buildings that punctuate the landscape to the colorful culture that permeates life here.

The Digs
At the heart of The Buccaneer—a former plantation founded in the 17th century—is the playfully pink main building of this 340-acre resort. Against the backdrop of a blue sky, it sits on a hill overlooking the turquoise Caribbean, with green-and-yellow palm trees swaying on the beach below. It's nothing short of romantic, recently featured on The Bachelor as a host hotel, and has garnered a couple of nods (Top 500 Hotels in the World, Top 25 in the Caribbean) from Travel + Leisure.

Find out for yourself which room suits your fancy: a Great House Ocean View Room, a Deluxe Oceanfront Room, or a Luxury Beachside Doubloon. All rooms are fit with a balcony or terrace, serving up choice views of the Caribbean and of Grotto and Mermaid beaches, and each is fit with a small refrigerator, satellite television, a coffeemaker, free Wi-Fi, and a DVD player.

The Diversions
After a full American breakfast, it'll be time to explore. The Buccaneer is home to "the best sports program on St. Croix," Frommer's says, so you'll have plenty to keep you busy. Navigate the currents aboard a kayak, or simply soak up some rays on a floating mat. The resort also provides snorkel gear and offers two-hour Discover Scuba lessons exclusively for guests. Other activities might include a round on the resort's 18-hole seaside golf course, or a match on one of eight tennis courts.

After sunset, treat yourself to dinner at The Terrace, where dishes like freshly caught local lobster are complemented by wine and live musical entertainment. On your last full day, reward your body with a massage at the spa, then scan new horizons on an adventurous ride around the island in your courtesy rental car.

  • "Aimed at travelers who want everything at their fingertips, this resort has sandy beaches, swimming pools, and extensive sports facilities."
