Exotic destinations are becoming less and less remote as speciality resorts grow and newer airlines increase flight routes. Vieques Island may not be as well known in Asia Pacific as some of the more popular locations such as Bali or Thailand. But this tropical paradise where the Caribbean Sea laps gently onto white sand shores is considered one of Puerto Rico’s best kept secrets.
The island got a nod from Travel & Leisure magazine who voted it Best Caribbean Island, the coastlines are breathtaking, and the sensual sounds of salsa float intermittently through the air. W Retreat & Spa set themselves up perfectly on Vieques combining its signature wow style with some of the best that Mother Nature has to offer.
On no less than two stunning beaches, the resort exudes an indulgent tropical escape that can be either full of adventure or as chilled as the ice floating in your cocktail. Begin by being greeted at the W Airport Lounge with a refreshing drink before being transported to the resort. It’s a nice touch, kind of makes you feel like you’ve already arrived before you even get there.
As the resort say, ’fiesta and spice and everything nice await your indulgence’. That indulgence includes spectacular gardens, the trendy poolside scene at WET with its beachside infinity pool, or send your senses soaring at the AWAY Spa with treatment rooms overlooking the ocean. You can get comfy in the Living Room with that special book or if you’re feeling a little energetic you’ll love the SWEAT Fitness Centre. Take on your opponent at the Har-Tru tennis courts and if you must, the WIRED Business Centre will keep you in touch with the outside world.
We love the Whatever/Whenever service ”“ every hotel should have one. Anything you want, wherever you want it, as long as its legal they say, they’ll make it happen. Go horse riding through the mangroves, organise a romantic sunset sail, or private beach picnic. The W Beach has its own Beach Ambassadors will ensure you have the right tools for the perfect sand castle creation, gourmet food and drinks and can even get a game of beach volleyball started for you.
Explore the island further and take in the charm of local towns, authentic Caribbean cuisine, fishing hotspots or chat to the local villagers over a few glasses of rum in an open-air seaside bar.
The island is easily accessible from major airline hubs in North and South America, the Caribbean and Europe. From San Juan the flight to the island is just 20 minutes.
