Readers vote luxury resort as one of the world’s best Caribbean resorts

ST. THOMAS, U.S.V.I.MARCH. 5, 2016 –The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas is pleased to announce it has been recognized by the readers of Travel + Leisure as one of the world’s best Caribbean resorts in the World’s Best Awards for 2015. The luxury hotel joins three other properties from The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company in this distinguished recognition.

Readers of Travel + Leisure were invited to participate in a questionnaire and rate hotels on five characteristics, including rooms and facilities, location, service, restaurants and food and value. Required component ratings were then averaged, creating an overall score. A total of twenty five hotels were recognized in the Caribbean.

“A barefoot breeziness lies beneath the resort’s sophisticated veneer, and families, as well as couples, will feel at home here,” said the Travel + Leisure website.

“Coming from our guests, this recognition is especially meaningful,” said Bernd Kuhlen, general manager at The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas. “Our ladies and gentlemen consistently work to make each guest’s stay unique and memorable, and I’m delighted to accept this honor on their behalf.”

Nestled within a 30-acre beachfront estate, The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas blends classic elegance with the traditional warmth of the Caribbean. The acclaimed Virgin Islands resort offers a variety of luxurious amenities including lavishly designed presidential suites and guest rooms; four distinctive ocean-front dining choices; a full service spa; and a 53’ luxury catamaran, the Lady Lynsey.
