St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands
Doing business beachside might sound like a luxury — and an improbable one at that — but the Caribbean offers a surprising number of options for the suit-and-tie set. Some of the top hotels in the region offer both palapas and pagers, making themselves attractive options for business travelers. Whether power-exec couples need to dial into a conference while on vacation, or a company is looking to host a high-powered retreat, these hotels offer the services, meeting spaces, and attention to detail that is required to seal the deal. The Ritz-Carlton is St. Thomas' classiest resort, located only five minutes from Red Hook's fun dining and yacht scene. Its private sailboat, fitness center, spa, and soft-sand beach -- a marine-life sanctuary -- are all among the best in St. Thomas. Business Perks: Business travelers should consider staying on The Club Level, which features its own lounge with gorgeous views of Great Bay and a dedicated concierge staff. The hotel also boasts 10,000-square-feet of indoor and outdoor event and meeting space, as well as a 53-foot luxury catamaran — perfect if your clients are boating enthusiasts looking to seal the deal at sea.
