Best Caribbean Luxury Resorts: The Caves, Turks & Caicos

5th Place Readers' Choice Winner: The Caves, Turks & Caicos

The Caves isn't far from the tourist-lined streets of Negril, but perched high on the limestone cliffs of the scenic West End, it feels a world away. The private 10-acre property gives way to 12 exclusive cliff-side cottages and suites, plus a butler-serviced four-bedroom villa tucked back in the jungle. Morning jumps off the cliffs are tradition. From $385, islandoutpost.com/the_caves.
Best Caribbean Luxury Resorts: Amanyara, Turks and Caicos

4th Place Readers' Choice Winner: Amanyara, Turks and Caicos

Amanyara translates to "peaceful place," and it more than lives up to its name in terms of luxury resorts. Standing alone on the western side of Providenciales, this secluded spot is one of the island's most exclusive, from its ironshore coves and unspoiled reef walls to its reflecting pool surrounded by mahogany trees and signature circular bar. A trip to Provo (as the locals call it) just simply isn't complete without sunset drinks at Amanyara. From $1,300, amanresorts.com.
Best Caribbean Luxury Resorts: Four Seasons, Nevis

3rd Place Readers' Choice Winner: Four Seasons, Nevis

It's small town meets big luxury here at the Four Seasons Nevis, where just steps from Pinney's Beach, the infinity-edge Garden Pool begs for a dip. And when you get hungry, don't fret: The food comes to you. Be sure to order the snapper ceviche (just plucked from the water below) marinated in red peppers, cilantro and mint. From $375, fourseasons.com/nevis.
Best Caribbean Luxury Resorts: Peter Island Resort & Spa, BVI

2nd Place Readers' Choice Winner: Peter Island Resort & Spa, BVI

Take a second to catch your breath — yes, you're actually here in private-island paradise. Grab two of your closest friends and rent out this ocean-view room that opens to panoramic views of cool breezes. Or grab a few more friends and buy out the whole island for $347,500 for five nights. Hey, if you split it between 130 people — the max number of guests — it's not too bad for luxury resorts. Ocean-view rooms from $385, peterisland.com.
Best Caribbean Luxury Resorts: Jade Mountain, St. Lucia

1st Place Readers' Choice Winner: Jade Mountain, St. Lucia

This isn't your "room" — it's your sanctuary. Every one of them is unique, though all replace a fourth wall with an infinity pool to frame a sprawling view of the St. Lucia's Pitons. Even without a wall, your sanctuary feels secluded. From $995, jademountain.com.
