Why You Should Escape The Winter Weather And Travel To The Caribbean

I challenge you to imagine bringing in your New Year on a sunny sandy beach, sunbathing in the middle of January while drinking a Bahama Mama and dancing up and down the street in late February. To a New Yorker, this idea is barely imaginable. But, I challenge you to believe that it’s actually possible. I encourage you to escape your cold city and and enjoy a luxury vacation to the Caribbean for the winter. Luxury Retreats provides 945 professionally inspected breathtaking villas with 24/7 guest support and a price match guarantee to accommodate your Caribbean luxury vacations. Luxury Retreats is currently offering holiday exclusives to Costa Rica, Barbados, St. Martin and Mexico. If escaping the winter weather isn’t enough reason to travel to the Caribbean, here are a few more reasons: 



By the end of the year, I’m tired, aren’t you? The year is coming to a close and I’d like to enjoy this wonderful holiday season with my family and friends. A trip to the caribbean is exactly the way I’d like to relax. Instead of braving the snow to run to work, wouldn’t you like to wake up in one of Luxury Retreat’s exquisite villa accommodations? So, I scrolled through their list of Caribbean luxury vacations and of course I stopped at St. Thomas and Bahamas but I think I’d like to try somewhere new this time. I’ve never been to Barbados, and surprisingly they have 12 villas on “Gibbs Beach.” My favorite is, Ixoria at Emerald Beach, they accommodate a family of 6, they are located on the beachfront, provide and on-site chef and a pool. Sounds quite relaxing to me.




Natives and home-goers enjoy their heritage during the winter months with carnivals, independence days and other bashes. Some of the most well known carnivals in the Caribbean happen during the winter months including St. Kitts Nevis Carnival November- January 8, Turks and Caicos Maskanoo December 26, Bahamas Junkanoo Festival December 26 – January 1, 2017, Aruba’s Carnival January-February, and the grandest of them all is Trinidad and Tobago’s Carnival February 27-18.

Every loving couple looks forward to New Year’s Eve for their annual midnight kiss and Valentine’s Day to celebrate their love. The Caribbean is the perfect place to show “bae” how much you adore them. Islands like St. Lucia, Turks and Caicos and St. Barts are well known romantic getaways for Valentine’s Day, honeymoons and anniversaries. Luxury Retreats provides 38 hand picked villas perfect for honeymoons and romance. The simplicity and sleekness of Sugar Kube villa in Turks and Caicos impressed me. It is perfect for the couple that just wants a beautiful backdrop and each other to celebrate their Valentine’s Day. The Zen villa in St. Barts is located on a hilltop, perfect the couple who loves a hideaway.

    I’d definitely recommend Barbados. It was my favorite island when I cruised the Southern Caribbean.
