Soufriere, Soufriere Quarter, St. Lucia
Jade Mountain is one of the world's most romantic -- and expensive -- hotels, but it's also one of the best places to unplug. The rooms are called sanctuaries, and rightly so -- they are intentionally tech-free, with no TVs, Internet, or radios to disturb the peace. They all have open fourth walls with jaw-dropping views of Pitons and the Caribbean Sea, Jacuzzi tubs, and canopied beds; most have private infinity pools. What to Do When You're Off the Grid: Many romantic-minded travelers will spend all of their time in their rooms, but the active set will find plenty to entertain. Jade Mountain offers a scuba center on-site, with a full diving program, and there's excellent scuba diving to be had near Anse Chastanet. There's also a jungle biking center on-site, with Cannondale mountain bikes to rent, and several spots on the island offering great windsurfing. Those looking for slower-paced activities can visit the mineral baths at Sulpher Springs Volcanic Park, or shop for batik clothing and artisan carvings at the Soufriere market.
