Controversial pictures have been published online of Prince William, Kate and baby George having fun on the beach on the Caribbean island of Mustique. Whether you think this is an intrusion into their privacy or not, the pictures reveal one thing – a truly beautiful holiday destination. If you fancy your own Caribbean holiday fit for a king or queen, here are a few ideas.
A trip to the private island of Mustique is not within everyone’s budget, but if you’re fortunate enough to have the pennies, there are some truly luxurious villas to rent. Just a short hop away is St Vincent and the Grenadines. Enjoy total relaxation on the private paradise of Young Island or opt for a family holiday at the only five-star all-inclusive resort on St Vincent, the Buccament Bay Resort.
St Lucia is another ideal option for a luxurious Caribbean break. If you want an adults-only experience, there is the Sandals Grande St Lucian Spa and Beach Resort, or families could head to the St James’s Club Morgan Bay by Elite or the Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa, which boasts great facilities for kids.
Barbados has long been a popular choice with British travellers. The Southern Palms in St Lawrence is a really relaxed family option, whilst the five-star Coral Reef Club in Holetown is hard to beat for pure luxury.
Antigua is a welcoming paradise for young and old alike. The Verandah Resort and Spa is located on not one but two pristine white beaches and has its own kids’ club, while the adults-only Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa was given the title of the World’s Most Romantic Resort for no fewer than 15 years in a row.
Mexico, meanwhile, is hard to beat when it comes to great scenery, top food and a really welcoming atmosphere. Treat yourself to a stay at the five-star Grand Sunset Princess All Suites & Spa in Playa del Carmen for a feast of Mexican hospitality.
