St John Resorts

St John is the least developed of the United States Virgin Islands, and that's just fine by most, who appreciate the island's pristine and laid-back feel. Since development is limited on St John island, your choices for St John accommodations will be more limited than on the more developed islands of St Thomas and St Croix. The St John resorts are quite luxurious, and since the island offers such a cherished experience, they are also quite expensive. If you should choose one of the St John resorts as your St John accommodations, then you'll certainly be enjoying some of the best service and amenities available on the island. Unfortunately, there are no St John all inclusive resorts to choose from, so you might look to the St Croix resorts and St Thomas resorts if that's what you're after.

The Caneel Bay Resort is without question one of the more interesting St John resorts, offering a luxurious eco-resort experience. This excellent choice for St John accommodations can be found resting on 170 acres in the island's National Park. There are 7 wonderful beaches to choose from for guests at Caneel Bay, and complimentary to guests are a range of services and amenities, including use of snorkeling gear, kayaks, and small sailboats. For an additional charge, other activities can be arranged, so you might enjoy a fishing charter or a Jeep rental, among other options. There are an array of luxurious room choices at Caneel Bay, and the amenities are many. You won't find any televisions or telephones in your room, however, as the focus here is on friends, family, and nature.

Another excellent St John accommodations choice is the Westin St John Resort & Villas, which offers a much different experience than the more relaxed Canneel Bay Resort. The Westin involves more of a mega-resort experience, which is what some visitors will prefer. The Westin St John Resort is spread over 34 acres, and it has the largest pool in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Guests can relax on the 1,200-foot beach here, which boasts palm trees and white sand, and when it's time for a workout or a bit of pampering, the state-of-the-art spa and fitness center should prove ideal. There are 6 tennis courts for guests to enjoy as well, and you can rent equipment, book a lesson, or peruse the tennis pro shop at your leisure. With 4 restaurants on hand, you can expect a varied dining scene at this Westin offering. The Beach Café, which is one of the resort's eateries, offers nice views of Cruz Bay, and at Snorkel's Bar you can dine on the beach under palm trees. Like other St John resorts, this one has a dive shop, and you can start by diving in the pool if you are a beginner.

Found just a short walk from downtown Cruz Bay, Gallows Point Resort offers 1-bedroom suites that feature a list of amenities, including fully equipped kitchens. Satellite cable TV, a private balcony, wireless internet, and a king size bed are just some of the other amenities you can expect at this fine St John accommodations option. There is a nice restaurant on-site here, and if you feel like preparing your own meal(s), the resort's gourmet grocery store should prove convenient. When you stay at one of the St John resorts, such as Gallows Point, you will have so many activities to choose from that you could never possibly get bored. Horseback riding tours can be arranged at Gallows Point, as can guided kayaking expeditions. Perhaps you'll be up for a parasailing experience or a trip to the British Virgin Islands to go scuba diving.

The St John resorts mentioned here are the main choices on the island, with the Westin being the best fit for those interested in St John resort villas. The St John resort villas at the Westin St John Resort & Villas offer extra space and flexibility, making them ideal for families, as well as anyone else seeking increased room and privacy. There are studio St John resort villas here, as well as 1 and 2-bedroom choices, each with semi-private swimming pools. The full kitchens are nice for those who want to prepare some meals here and there, and you can keep on top of your laundry, as each unit offers a washer and dryer. In addition to the Westin's St John resort villas, visitors to St John can also choose to rent privately owned villas and/or vacation rentals.
