Many visitors to the Caribbean island
nation of Trinidad and Tobago come to enjoy fun in the sun. That’s where the
Trinidad and Tobago resorts come in. Most of the resorts in Trinidad
and Tobago take advantage
of a beachfront location, and this country is full of idyllic beaches,
so it makes sense if you want to stay near one. Arguably, the best beaches in
the country are found on the smaller island of Tobago, so Tobago is also where
you will find the bulk of the Trinidad and Tobago resorts. As tourism increases
on the larger and busier island of Trinidad, however, the choices for resorts
there is growing, so you will also want to consider some of the Trinidad resorts
as well. There aren’t a ton of resorts in Trinidad and Tobago regardless of
which island you are looking to base yourself on, so if you are choosing to
come during the December to June peak season, you might want to book your room
Before you start looking for the ideal resort in Trinidad and Tobago for your wants and needs, you should know that some of them are all inclusive. At the Trinidad and Tobago all inclusive resorts, your one-time fee will cover your room, meals, most drinks, some activities, and entertainment on the side, which is pretty convenient. It’s nice to not have to pull your wallet out every time that you go to eat or drink something, which is an especially good feature for those with kids. The Trinidad and Tobago all inclusive resorts have long been popular with couples who are planning a wedding or honeymoon in the country, as they allow their guests to focus less on the details and more on having fun. The Trinidad and Tobago all inclusive resorts are not widespread, but there are some good ones to choose from, and if nothing else, you can choose a boarding plan that at least features a meal plan. More often than not, the meal plans at the resorts here include breakfast and dinner, allowing you to seek your own dining experiences outside of the resort come lunchtime. Just four miles south of Tobago’s capital of Scarborough is where you will find the Grafton Beach Resort. Not only is it one of the best resorts in Trinidad and Tobago, but it is also one of the featured all inclusive establishments, so you might start your search there.
Other top Trinidad and Tobago resorts include the Coco Reef Resort & Spa, the Vanguard Hotel Limited (VHL) Tobago Golf & Spa Resort, and the Le Grand Courlan Resort & Spa. As one might imagine, resorts with the word “spa” in them have the advantage of boasting spa facilities, so if it’s complete relaxation and rejuvenation that you seek during your trip, these are probably the way to go. The Grafton Beach Resort costs less than the VHL or Le Grand Courlan, so if you can’t swing the rates elsewhere, it makes for a good choice. The Coco Reef Resort & Spa is also a bit cheaper than the VHL or Le Grand Courlan. As is true of most the other Trinidad and Tobago resorts, the Grafton Beach Resort has more than one restaurant, a few bars, an outdoor pool, and tour and car rental services. The Le Grand Courlan is probably the most luxurious of all the resorts in Trinidad and Tobago, and like other Tobago resorts, it has you within steps of an idyllic Caribbean beach. Golf privileges are available to guests at Le Grand Courlan, which is true of most of the resorts on Tobago island. It also boasts a dive shop, which is also common, and in addition to diving excursions, you can arrange fishing trips through the hotel staff as well. You’ll really have everything that you will need to enjoy a great vacation when staying at one of the Tobago resorts.
Should you be looking for Trinidad and Tobago all inclusive resorts on the island of Trinidad, you will have trouble finding one, but there are some non-all inclusive resorts in Trinidad that might pique your interest. Most of the good hotel choices on the island of Trinidad can be found in or near the capital of Port of Spain, and while the city doesn’t boast what might seem like your standard beachfront resorts, it does have a few upscale, resort-like hotels that might interest you. Among them are the Hyatt Regency Trinidad and the Hilton Trinidad & Conference Center. At the Hyatt Regency, a rooftop pool and a spa await you, while at the Hilton, you can book massage services, hang out at one of two pools, play a little tennis, and more. There are no less than four bars and two restaurants at the Hilton, so it basically classifies as a resort in that aspect, and the Hyatt has a nice bar and a fabulous lounge where you can also order food. Since neither of these hotels has you on or exactly near a beach, some might not call them resorts, but they offer full facilities so you could consider them to be city resorts.
For something a bit more traditional, the Salybia Nature Resort & Spa might better fit your wants and needs when seeking out a resort in Trinidad. Found on the quiet and rustic east coast of Trinidad, the Salybia Nature Resort & Spa is a terrific place to unwind. Since there are only 21 oceanfront rooms, a suite, and a seven-room villa to choose from at the Salybia Resort, the service is excellent, and like most of the resorts in the country, you’ll find a modern conference center here. An 80-foot pool overlooks the ocean. Should you feel like doing some hiking, there are nature trails that you can access from the hotel grounds. For nature seekers, the Salybia Resort is hard to beat. Other simpler resorts in Trinidad can be found on the beaches at Maracas Bay and Blanchisseuse, and while less complete, they are also ideal for those looking to stay close to nature.
