Ask anyone for a recommendation on where to stay when visiting St. Thomas and the answer will almost certainly be the Ritz. And ask anyone who wants to visit St. Thomas where they’d like to stay and the answer, again, will most certainly be the Ritz. Monocles will not shatter at this revelation—we all know what to expect from this brand name—but it is merely a testament to creating and cultivating experiences that guests will love and appreciate year after year.
And few experiences, if any, will ever top staying in the Presidential Suite at The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas, where guests can sit back, relax, and enjoy one of the most spectacular curated getaways offered anywhere in the world.
It begins, of course, with the accommodations, and this three-bedroom palace is as modern and stylish as it is spacious and comfortable. Enjoying just over 3,500-sq. ft., and not to mention five bathrooms, as many as four guests will be spoiled with privacy and maximum comfort with separate living and dining spaces, a kitchenette loaded with appliances, and the softest featherbeds. One of the resort’s exceptional chefs will also swing by to serve up a five-course dinner that will rank among the best meals of any travelers’ lives.
But it’s what will happen outside the suite that makes this limited experience so extravagant. For starters, gusts will enjoy presidential treatment from the moment they arrive, being whisked from the airport in a private SUV, and they’ll never forget spectacular on-site moments like seaside cabana massages, a four-course terrace dinner with a personalized menu and cocktails, and yet another meal, this one a six-course dinner in an idyllic beach gazebo. A private cooking class will even allow guests to bring home their favorite Caribbean cuisines.
There will also be an entire day spent in an oceanfront cabana with a private butler. Needless to say, Instagram feeds will have friends and family jealous beyond words.
The cherry on top is a series of excursions curated by the concierge, including Sea Ray charters, sunset dinner sails, and a charter on Lady Lynsey II, on which guests will undoubtedly love the thrill of snorkeling with turtles.
