Sun-draped, exotic destinations and impossibly luxurious hotels are just a taste of what's new to our Caribbean portfolio this year. As well as the new, we're still sporting our old favourites who have even more to offer.
Off-road in Puerto Rico
This cultural melting pot is new to the programme. Dripping with historical gems like Parque de Bombas and Spanish Fort, El Morro, there's culture a plenty waiting to be discovered. Home to the world's brightest bioluminescence bay, Mosquito Bay, guests can kayak through the shimmer-studded waters or take a boat ride through. There's a wealth of further wonders to lose yourself in, including coconut plantations, lush rainforest, nature trails and picture-perfect beaches.
More than meets the eye
Newly introduced, Dominican Republic is a Caribbean island with a twist. The unexpected lush, green landscape and cloud-draped mountains are a charming surprise. But like its fellow Caribbean islands, it isn't short of palm-scattered beaches. Laced with an infectious buzz and Spanish flavour, the capital, Santo Domingo, brims with colonial arcitechture on every cobbled street. A Relais and Châteaux property and clifftop bolthole await on this charasmatic island.
Causing a stir in Riviera Maya
An exclusive adults-only property, Unico 20°N 87°W Hotel is a brand new haven for laid-back luxe lovers. Rooms with a difference include Alcoba Swim-up with private pool or PURE® Alcoba, designed specifically for allergy sufferers. Unwind by day in a VIP cabana and at the swim-up bar; and experiment with a new culinary delight every evening at one of the numerous restaurants.
