Why Stay At The Buccaneer

This historic St. Croix resort with stunning views sits atop three white-sand beaches, drawing sun worshippers who come for the golfing, spa treatments, dining, and shopping.

The Scoop

Easterly trade winds and a breathtaking locale on three beaches have made The Buccaneer a luxury getaway destination for the rich and famous since 1948. The resort's 340 tropical acres are situated on the eastern end of St. Croix, just a five-minute drive from the historic town of Christiansted. The Buccaneer, however, seems miles away from humanity, especially when lounging on Mermaid Beach, Grotto Beach, and Whistle Beach. Some of the 113 rooms and 25 suites sit inside The Great House, which has been dubbed the "pink" building (where Alexander Hamilton lived as a child), while other buildings are located closer to the shore. Rooms are decorated in a no-fuss island style with nautical British touches like maple-wood four-poster beds, plantation shades, cane chairs, and colorful fabrics. The resort also has a Bob Joyce-designed, 18-hole golf course, eight tennis courts, and a water-sports center.

Insider Tips

A romantic scene from The Bachelor was filmed here and prompted the resort to offer custom dinners for two on the Mermaid Beach dock. Scheduled during sunset, the experience includes a candlelit table, a musician, a butler, and a multi-course menu ($200 minimum per night, available on a first come, first served basis).

Ask the resort's concierge to book a trip to nearby Buck Island. For $70 per person (food and drink is not included), resort guests take a 30-minute ride in a catamaran or glass-bottom boat with a guide for a three-hour tour of the nearly uninhabited island that includes world-class snorkeling.
