No. 22 Nisbet Plantation Beach Club, Nevis
With no casinos, stoplights, or buildings taller than a coconut palm, 30-acre Nevis Island is the epitome of a Caribbean escape. The former 18th-century sugar plantation sits directly on a white-sand beach, and lemon-hued cottages with traditional Nevisian white pyramid roofs dot the palm-fringed property (book one of the six Lower Deluxe Junior suites for ocean views). Body wrap treatments at The Palms Spa utilize locally grown fruit and honey.
