“You are incomparable, the best. Why? Because you pay attention to details, you find out what we want and then make it happen.”— C & M, June 2012
Where do we begin? Jamaica and it’s legendary resorts, music and culture, golfing in Barbados or at Casa de Campo, tiny perfect Canouan Island, the Turks & Caicos or the Dominican Republic? Escape the winter with your friends and family or slip away for a romantic few days at legendary hotels and islands that you have never considered. The glamour of St Barth’s and Nevis or a fine meal on Antigua … there are so many options but we can help you decipher and find the perfect bolt hole.
Begin your journey in Havana, the legendary capital of gangsters, gambling and the haunts of Cuba’s almost native-son, Ernest Hemingway. Protected today by UNESCO the old city is a warren of grand Spanish colonial architecture, ancient plazas, churches and the most perfect Art Deco buildings. Discover the history of cigars and watch them being made, eat at “paladars” in local homes and immerse yourself in the music that is present everywhere. Travel to the country – Cienfuegos in Central Cuba, characterized by its French colonial past; perfectly enroute to Trinidad, another UNESCO world heritage site and stop in Santa Clara, site of the last battle in the Cuban Revolution in late 1958. And recover for a few days on the glorious beaches of Varadero.
St Vincent & The Grenadines
A string of small, mountainous islands, the Grenadines are a sailors paradise. Recent hotel and villa additions have made places like Mustique, Canouan and Bequia ideal for a week of sunshine and fun. Beach barbeques at Basil’s Bar, snorkelling the Tobago Cays or renting a sailboat for a day are all possible. The Grenadines are a fantastic destination for yacht charter.
Chances are that if you think of the perfect place to enjoy a cruise, the Caribbean springs to mind, with its palm-fringed islands all so close together. There are fantastic options to charter your own crewed yacht with friends or family; take a cabin on a scheduled yacht charter or join a luxurious 50-cabin yacht for a “golfing itinerary” through the islands. Tee-off on a new island and a fantastic golf course every day and experience outstanding service and dining onboard as you sail to you next destination.
Some of the Caribbean’s best beaches and most talked about hotels line the Barbados Coast. A longtime British colony (independence came only in 1956, after 341 years). Flower forests and Sugar Cane Plantations for exploring fill the West Coast along with resorts and incredible dining options. On other side of the island, the wild, boulder studded east coast is where you can try your hand at surfing!
Pacific Coast, Mexico
Puerto Vallarta, Punta Mita and laid back Sayulita string together options from luxurious five star resorts to beach hideaways.. Throughout there are great golf courses and options to surf, horseback ride, sail or kite board. Further inland the great Haciendas with their horseback riding, grand architecture and spectacular views can be added for a few days.
The Mayan Riviera is special with the lure of the turquoise waters and sugar like sandy beaches, resort rooms hanging over the mangrove forest lagoon, greetings by Lily rider birds each morning or a friendly Iguana. Old city ruins, part temple part fortresses, standing sentry for centuries on sheer cliff faces along the coastline. A seaside outdoor space not unlike what you would find in Il Duomo Florence! For those somewhat more adventurous – experiencing the mystical Mayan Culture in Tulum, Chchin Itzi or Koba is a must and highly recommended!
Antigua & Barbuda
There is something for everyone to experience in Antigua & Barbuda from hiking and sailing to diving and bird watching. Two are better than one and these two little jewels in the Caribbean boast some of the finest beaches in the world surrounded by turquoise sea! Time seems to stand still on these islands making it the perfect getaway from the stress and strain of life back home. You can lounge by the sea and sip something cool from the bar or discover the island and take a tour, go and delight in the local cuisine. The possibilities are endless…
Fantastic villa options, resort hotels and coffee plantations in the Blue Mountains make Jamaica a true island getaway. New and lesser known areas bring alive the Jamaica outside the Montego and Negril madness. Especially great family options and hideaways for those who love music and food in sophisticated, laid back beach style.
Nevis, St. Barths, St Martin and St. Kitts
There are so many places on these idyllic little islands one could never come home.
