The always-warm water and pristine beaches of the Caribbean have long been a winter-time attraction for tourists hailing from the world over. Anxious to escape being cooped up inside their homes, battling blizzards and ice, and looking to celebrate the holidays in more friendly settings, these visitors flock to our little corner of the world. Fortunately for them, several islands throughout the region are well known for both their environmental attractions—and their incredible hospitality. 


Recently, Travel and Leisure released their top 15 all-inclusive Caribbean resorts, just in time for the December swell in tourism. Several of the nations GCG Group serves were prominently featured, including Jumbo bay Island, off the northeast coast of Antigua, and is accessible by the resort’s private catamaran. The 72 suites and rooms of Curtain Bluff were also mentioned, specifically for their proximity to the gorgeous turquoise waters mere steps from the resort.


Several of Jamaica’s world-renown resorts were also highlighted, including Royalton Negril with its enticing adults-only section of the property, as well as the adults-only destinations of Couples Negril and Couple San Souci. However, Montego Bay’s Royalton Blue Waters resort capped off the list thanks to its family-friendly focus thanks to a water park, kid’s club, supervised activities for teens, and delectable restaurants and bars for those of age. 


The inarguable star of the list however, was none other than St. Lucia. Five individual resorts made it to the list, more than any other single nation. The reasons why are obvious; especially to's recently-published list of the top 10 Caribbean islands for the holidays, of which St. Lucia ranked 2nd. The “Hawaii of the Caribbean” boasts history, beauty, and a welcoming attitude unmatched by anywhere else in the world. 


Jade Mountain provides infinity pool suites in which to admire the iconic Pitons, while Cap Maison offers 5-star amenities including breakfasts, three-course lunches and dinners. Anse Chastanet is a water sports-lovers paradise, while Sugar Beach incorporates programs for both younger and older children. Finally, Ladera Resort is an adults-only, intimately small resort with views, plunge pools, and available sunset cruises. 


Each of the countries above—as well as all of those which make up the greater Caribbean—will soon be welcoming visitors hoping to trade in their white snow for white sand.
