Splash out on beachfront accommodation
It's easy to get swept up in the tropical beauty of Charlotte Amalie. Situated in the US Virgin Islands, the city serves up sensational ocean panoramas and a handful of resort-style hotels lining the golden sand beaches. Stroll along Charlotte Amalie Harbour or head downtown to peruse the many boutiques and jewellery shops.
The Marriott offers two beachfront locations with 4-star service and all the amenities required for an ultra relaxing stay. Both feature the benefit of on-site spas and restaurants. Both are also within easy walking distance to popular Morningstar Beach and within five kilometres of the Paradise Point Tramway.
The charm of a B&B
If you're hoping for a more unique Charlotte Amalie experience, a stay in a local B&B may just be the ticket. The city is home to many charming establishments that are ideally positioned to allow easy access to both the vibrant downtown shops and waterfront.
The Miller Manor Guest House and the Crystal Palace are two options within walking distance to Main Street and the historic St Thomas Synagogue. Both present great value for money with lower rates than many of the area hotels. They also offer comfortable rooms and scenic views of the harbour.
Beyond Charlotte Amalie
If you've explored every last inch of the capital city, St Thomas Island has plenty more to offer. Approximately 30 minutes from Charlotte Amalie, Red Hook features a plethora of restaurants and nightlife venues to explore, or hop over to St Croix for top rated beaches and diving opportunities.
Red Hook is home to a number of resorts, including the 3.5-star Point Pleasant Resort, which offers private villas over six hectares. Relish in the available resort amenities, or venture beyond to such nearby attractions as the Corki Diving Centre and Coral World Ocean Park.
