Caneel Bay offers a true sense of an island hideaway on the US Virgin island of St John. The hotel’s philosophy is to allow guests the freedom to completely detach themselves from the stresses of every day life. There are no TVs or telephones in the guest rooms and the island of St John is only accessible by boat or ferry. Instead, guests are surrounded by the beauty of nature; seven heavenly beaches, lush vegetation and abundant wildlife and underwater life – plus the hotel’s perfectly maintained grounds.
