Every Room Has An Ocean View At This Charming, All-Inclusive Caribbean Resort

Let's face it: The pristine, turquoise waters are the main draw of visiting the Caribbean. Something about the picturesque sparkling sea is an instantaneous fix to feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and far away from whatever problems are left behind at home. So when it comes to choosing where to stay, it only makes sense to desire an ocean-view room.

You won't have to worry about ocean-view rooms being sold out at one particular Caribbean resort in St. Thomas, which is part of the U.S. Virgin Islands, because every single room has them! The U.S. Virgin Islands are ideal for visiting in the winter, are located just a short journey away from the mainland, offers postcard-like views, and for the ultimate perk, U.S. citizens don't even need a passport to visit. Bolongo Bay Beach Resort is the icing on the cake for this paradise, with each room offering views of the Caribbean. For the ultimate getaway, you'll want to add this resort to your hotel bucket list.

Ocean-view rooms and all-inclusive eats at Bologna Bay Beach

With a total of 65 rooms, you won't need to compete for ocean views at Bolongo Bay Beach Resort — because all 65 has them. Better yet, each room boasts a private balcony, so you can wake up sipping your coffee while hearing the sweet sounds of the waves crashing in and smelling the salt in the air. The hotel has beach access, so get down to the beach to feel the sand beneath your toes as you begin your day in St. Thomas. Those who really love the water can enjoy splashing around in the oceanfront swimming pool.

The Caribbean is one of the best vacation spots to enjoy all-inclusive resorts, and luckily, Bolongo Bay Beach Resort is the only one of its kind in St. Thomas. All-inclusive resorts are great because it's a one-price-pays-all type of deal. Simply book the resort, and have your food, beverages, pool access, and more included in the initial cost (note that certain activities, like sailing or catamaran tours, both of which are popular add-on activities in St. Thomas, will cost extra). 

The hotel's designated restaurant, Iggies' Oasis, is a three-story poolside eatery and bar that will give you a peek into the taste of the island. Iggies makes it a priority to accommodate all guests of all types of dietary needs, including vegan and vegetarian. They offer vegan tacos, vegan quesadillas, and a black bean burger. For carnivores, the restaurant offers Caribbean lobster tails, Iggie's famous ribs (go for the mango jerk), and a scrumptious fried fish sandwich.

Far beyond views, everything you need is right on premise

Come for the views, but stay for the resort's amenities and on-site activities. Bolongo Bay Beach Resort offers plenty of complimentary water activities, free-flowing house wine and champagne, and live music for late night dwellers. For activities that take advantage of St. Thomas' pristine waters, Bolongo Bay offers all guests free access to kayaks, lounge chairs, beach toys, paddleboards, snorkeling gear, hammocks, and even sailboats. To really get out in the water, embark on the resort's designated award-winning "swim with turtles" half-day snorkel excursion (for an additional cost of $95). 

Bolongo Bay Beach Resort also offers sailing expeditions, such as the St. John Sail to Virgin Islands National Park ($145) and the Charlotte Amali Harbor Sunset Cruise ($85). For some games on premise, take advantage of poolside bingo, or for something a bit more adventurous, try the "famous snorkel booze hunt." This tradition has been running at the resort every week for 40 years, where guests can try their chance at finding hidden bottles of rum.
