Your New Vacation Destination: Caneel Bay

Caneel Bay
Looking down on Cinnamon Bay from the hillside Virgin Islands National Park St John, US Virgin Islands Steve Simonsen 340-775-4485

This just in: Caneel Bay, St. John’s iconic resort and the only to offer 170 acres and seven beaches within the Virgin Islands National Park, has a new reason to visit: The now-independent boutique property ushers in new eats at ZoZo’s Ristorante (same awesome location atop the ruins of an 18th-century sugar mill but exciting new tastes like the Caribbean lobster with “angry” marinara), new spa treatments using warm bamboo and seashells, and a complete overhaul of guest rooms starting in 2014. What won’t change: the attentive service, understated luxury and a commitment to the environment steered by founder Laurance Rockefeller. No iPads or iPods. Just you, the donkeys and the deer at this unspoiled retreat. — Audrey St. Clair
