Elite Suites of the Caribbean

By

A destination wedding, honeymoon or anniversary requires a special room, and some of the most luxurious hotel suites in the world are located at posh Caribbean resorts. Not everyone can afford to stay in a suite costing $52,000 -- the nightly rate at the Royal Penthouse Suite at the Hotel President Wilson in Geneva. But the hottest suites in the Caribbean are a relative bargain by comparison, and Elite Traveler magazine's list of 101 Top Hotel/Resort Suites of the Year includes some more reasonably priced rooms that still won out because of their combination of service, amenities, style and location:

1. Amanyara Ocean Villas, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos

Description:: Each of the villas at the Amanyara is like a mini resort unto itself, with three or four separate indoor-ooutdoor bedroom pavilions, a living-room and dining-room pavilion, kitchen and infinity-edge swimming pool surrounding a reflecting pool or ornamental lake on more than an acre of property at Northwest Point.

Cost: $12,000 per night
