Picture this: You’re on your honeymoon, or celebrating your anniversary, or you just want some alone time with your partner. That means spending days on end pretending like the rest of the world doesn’t exist. And what better way to do that than to post up in your ultra-romantic room without ever having to leave? The Caribbean isn’t short on places where you can have anything your heart craves, 24 hours a day -- and often with views of bright blue seas, jungle-clad mountains, and white-sand beaches. Read on for 10 of our favorite Caribbean hotels with 24-hour room service before you plan your next pampering getaway.
To be clear, this is one of the priciest resorts in the Caribbean. But the One&Only brand has essentially perfected the luxury experience, and that translates to plenty of romance for those with the means. Expect perks like butlers, daily Champagne and strawberries in rooms, a gorgeous spa, and amazing dining by celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The beach is a stunner, with white sand and aquamarine water, and the best rooms look right out to sea. Room service is available around the clock, as are butlers. It’s a bit more active than other One&Only properties, and includes golf and tennis facilities. You’ll also likely hear Jetskis buzzing around in the sea during the day. But the exclusive, romantic here is undeniable.
Wedged between St. Lucia’s iconic Pitons, Sugar Beach is one of the island’s prettiest places to recharge. The setting and beach make this a true all-inclusive escape on resort-heavy St. Lucia, and the natural sounds of the tropics at night are truly something special. The property also has one of the nicest spas on the island. Rooms are done in a gorgeous white-on-white aesthetic that combines contemporary and beach-cottage styles, with chic art and furniture. Some have private plunge pools, and all come with butlers. The mountain views are exceptional throughout the property and the resort has everything from a PADI-certified dive center to an excellent gym. Those activities might come in handy, because you can order from the resort’s in-room menu all day and night.
The Hyatt resorts have been upping their game over recent years and have made more than one of our favorites lists due to their focus on fresh design and excellent amenities. Everything about this Hyatt Zilara is tailor-made for romance, from the seaside setting to the oceanfront spa to nearly a dozen dining and drinking venues. It also happens to be an adult-only all-inclusive resort, meaning that there’s plenty of kid-free peace and quiet to be found. The beach isn’t the prettiest in the Caribbean, but services like optional butlers and even beach butlers add a refined touch here. You can also indulge yourself 24 hours a day through the hotel’s in-room dining program.
While the W certainly has a livelier vibe than other competing romantic resorts, the atmosphere here always feels refined. The real treat at this resort is its stunning setting on the north coast of Vieques. It has two private beaches, a gorgeous central pool complex, a sleek spa, and emerald-hued landscaping in spades. The huge rooms have a trendy, funky look, and there are plenty of places to kick back and relax or socialize with other guests throughout the property. A breakfast buffet includes local fare, live-cooking stations, fresh tropical juices and elixirs, and all manner of sweet treats. The free morning yoga on the seaside cliffs is also a must-do. And have no fear — if you’re experiencing late-night cravings you can order food and drink around the clock (with fees).
While this hotel is isolated — even on tiny St. Martin — that’s part of its exclusive atmosphere. As a payoff, expect a wealth of amenities that help keep everyone happy and blissed out. To that end, the resort sits along one of the prettiest beaches on St. Martin — Baie Longue. The Belmond itself occupies over 50 acres, all of which are packed with lush landscaping that amplifies the romantic setting. With under 100 rooms, it also manages to feel intimate and private, two crucial factors when choosing a romantic getaway. Suites are the splashiest option here, and give you plenty of space to enjoy any kind of pampering you can imagine alongside the resort’s 24-hour room service. Expect extras like VIP airport transfers and private beach cabanas as well.
While we think that smaller, intimate properties make the most romantic escapes, there are plenty of travelers who prefer a large-scale resort that’s filled with bells and whistles to make their holiday complete. Sanctuary Cap Cana is exactly that type of property, and has hosted its fair share of weddings and honeymoons. This all-inclusive, adult-only property sits atop cliffs overlooking stunning sea vistas, though it’s quite far from the action in central Punta Cana. That setting is what helps the Sanctuary feel like a tranquil escape, despite having nearly 200 rooms, six pools, and multiple restaurants and bars. You can order food and drinks directly to your room 24 hours a day, and the beach is a palm-lined beauty.
While this resort certainly has family-friendly features, it’s also a fantastically romantic escape right on Grenada’sGrand Anse Beach. It has been family owned for decades, though the classic look feels both modern and elegant. Rooms have tropical details like hardwood poster beds, paddle fans, and pitched cottage-style ceilings alongside luxe marble accents. The best, of course, look out directly onto the beach and have hammocks, though the suites with private pools make for a perfect escape as well. Those are particularly delightful if you feel like taking a late-night dip and ordering a little something from the round-the-clock room service.
Privacy is the name of the game at this ultra-exclusive and romantic getaway, which has played host to the likes of Drake and Gwen Stefani. There are only five villas and two mansions to rent here, and all come with the kinds of amenities you’d expect from a celebrity destination. These include a range of variable extras like Apple TVs, free cell phones, private pools, Banksy murals, and private concierges. There’s even an on-site recording studio, though it has to be rented in advance. In-room dining is available 24/7 from the hotel’s Asian-inspired restaurant. While it’s not directly on the sand, the hotel provides free shuttles to its private beach club. There is no communal pool or spa, but that doesn’t seem to bother the travelers who land here in search of an undisturbed luxury experience.
From ponds and beautiful gardens to a Champagne breakfast and traditional afternoon tea service, it’s the little touches that set The House apart from its Barbados competition. It also happens to be an adult-only option with an away-from-it-all atmosphere (there isn’t even a sign along the road pointing the way to the property). The reward for making your way here? A peaceful and refined escape that bursts with romantic potential. You’ll be hard-pressed to come up with all of the blue hues needed to describe the water along the hotel’s beach, and the classically appointed suites are tricked out with refined amenities including extensive minibars, living areas, and balconies. If you need some late-night nourishment after a day of partaking in the free motorized water sports, or want to spoil yourself after the free jet-lag massage, a menu is available for room service all day and night.
While Punta Cana is packed with its share of big-box all-inclusive resorts that rage until dawn, that vibe doesn’t exactly scream enduring romance. So what does? For starters, the intimate size of Tortuga Bay — just 30 rooms — means that service is hyper-personalized. The casual, breezy ambience and classic, beachy style all add to the laid-back vibe. It also has a nature preserve, golfing, and multiple excellent dining venues. For those looking to post up in their lovely rooms around the clock, 24-hour room service is on offer. However, we bet that once you see the beach and pool, you’ll want to be out in the sun as well.
