Every year, the U.S. News & World Report ranks the best resorts around the world by taking into consideration the reputation among professional travel experts, various guest reviews, as well as hotel class ratings. Visitors to their website can use their detailed filters and settings to easily find help and information about the international and U.S. resorts that would best suit their needs and preferences.
When it comes to the extensive damage across a lot of the Caribbean islands and their luxury hotels during the 2017 hurricane season, U.S. News & World Report has decided not to update rankings for the Best Hotels in the Caribbean or Best All-Inclusive Resorts in the Caribbean for 2018. As a result, the Caribbean hotels will retain their 2017 scores and rankings. The hotels will be re-evaluated for the Best Hotels release in 2019.
This, of course, doesn’t mean that you should ignore the Caribbean this year. Despite the recent incidents in the region during the hurricane season, the hotel and tourism industry is still being developed, improved, and is booming. To further emphasize that, here are 5 of the newest luxury hotels in the region that you might want to check out:
