One of only two major resorts on St. John (the other is Caneel Bay), the Westin caters to a diverse clientele: You'll spot families chatting at the pool bar, kids cavorting on water trampolines, newlyweds basking on the 1,200-foot-long beach (sometimes very newly wed, as the hotel does a brisk wedding business), and everyone watching the daily iguana feedings. The pool is a big draw—it stretches over a quarter of an acre and is by far the largest in the territory—as are the signature Heavenly Beds in each of the 174 rooms (think high-thread-count sheets, comfortable mattresses, and crisp duvets). As at Caneel Bay, guests arrive via private ferry from St. Thomas (which returns to Charlotte Amalie four times a day for anyone eager to brave the cruise ship crowds); Cruz Bay Watersports is on site for those interested in booking excursions like diving, sunset sails, or parasailing.
