Antigua: Hermitage Bay

On Antigua's west coast, this resort feels like a Caribbean Bali Hai. Along the white-powder shore, chaise lounges and umbrellas invite relaxing days. Although most guests never stray from the property, the resort is only 10 minutes from Jolly Harbour's lively marina and shops.

Dine: Here, the five-star dining revolves around locally source ingredients interpreted in Indian, Chinese, and Jamaican-kissed fare: spiced king fish with jasmine rice and jerk chicken wontons with mango chutney? So awesome.
Don't miss: Learn how to make some of your favorite dishes from the resort in a cooking class. It's pure fun hanging out with the chef in the alfresco kitchen, using organic vegetables from the garden and Caribbean spices. (Book in advance; the class fills up fast.)
