As we head into winter’s monochrome, is it any wonder that we daydream of white sands, palm trees, and the serene sapphire seas of the Caribbean?  

To provide respite from the chill, we present seven tropical escapes in the Caribbean, where the Northern snow and ice are but a memory.   

Contemplate that fathomless blue from a tropical, lagoon-style pool in the Bahamas; unwind on the tennis court or in the full-service spa of a secluded seaside sanctuary in Anguilla; or find solace on an idyll in the Turks and Caicos, with its own deepwater dock for the superyacht that gets you there. 

1. Illawarra House, Albany, Nassau, Bahamas 

Beach house
Illawarra House, an oceanfront compound in the jet-set Bahamas resort of Albany, is enveloped by nearly an acre of tropical gardens with alfresco living and dining areas and a resort-worthy pool.

The luxury resort community of Albany, encompassing 600 oceanside acres in New Providence, Bahamas, is the collective vision of its founders—Joe Lewis and private investment organization Tavistock Group, along with golfing greats Tiger Woods and Ernie Els and pop superstar Justin Timberlake. 

Illawarra House is among the resort’s beautiful beachfront homes. The property includes a two-story four-bedroom main residence, a two-bedroom guest house, staff quarters, and a three-car garage.   

All that chic, barefoot luxury includes a private spa with a sauna and an invigorating ice bath, an outdoor entertainment zone, and a luxurious pool facing calm, cerulean seas, and, of course, the resort’s world-class sporting amenities and five-star service.  

2. Contemporary Beachfront Villa, Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic

If that’s not enough, the peninsula’s five-star resorts, fine dining, and rejuvenating spas are a short walk away—along palm-fringed powder white sands.

The layout incorporates six en suite bedrooms, including two large primary suites, each with a private outdoor shower garden. The grand atrium has a reflection pool, a gourmet kitchen, and private study.

Waterfront house
Above a secluded bay on the under-the-radar isle of Dominica in the Lesser Antilles, this rainforest retreat with jungle-to-ocean views comes with every creature comfort imaginable.

The two villas—Zabuco V and Ti-Fèy II—encompass terraces for dining and lounging, private plunge pools, barbecue areas, and verdant gardens.  

Indoors, the meticulous craftsmanship shines with Guyanese greenheart wood and Dominican red cedar finishes.

The open-plan chef’s kitchens are equipped with Siemens appliances. The living spaces are air conditioned and equipped with a Sonos sound system.
