Lose yourself in the tranquil island life at this Luxury Puerto Rico Resort and let the stress of the everyday recede with each wave. Frolic in our secluded natural haven and discover charmed island life amid lush landscapes. Experience R&R W-style.
Succumb to the relaxingly luxurious allure of villa living as only the W knows how. Breathtaking vistas beckon beyond your private balcony at your own exclusive beach retreat. Dive into thrilling water sports or rejuvenate at AWAY® Spa by W Hotels. Take a dip in the infinity-edged pool or immerse yourself in the wonders of the Bioluminescent Bay, the world's largest and brightest. Sample world-class cuisine by Alain Ducasse or sip a cocktail at sunset in the Living Room.
Voted Best Caribbean Island by Travel & Leisure in 2008, most of the island's secluded beaches and breathtaking coasts are off beaten tracks and on par with paradise—whether you're off-roading or trailblazing to get there, you'll discover immaculate playas in their purest form, isolated from crowds, vendors and touristy distractions. Do it all, from snorkeling, diving and sailing where every beach has its own character and personality, from family-friendly (Red Beach) and local favorite surf's up (Navio) to swimming (Sun Bay Beach near Esperanza) and completely isolated (Punta Arenas). Media Luna is perfect for picnics and swimming, Bahia la Chiva has cool kayaking, Bahia Caracas is a prime spot to be seen on the scene and Playa Grande is a hot spot for fishing. But for one of the world's most stunning natural sights, the largest bioluminescent bay at Puerto Mosquito is a perfect after-sunset activity, also home to an amazing array of native wildlife.
Beyond the beaches, choose your own island adventure from horseback riding in the mountains and mangrove tours through the Vieques National Wildlife Refuge to exploring local towns. Isabel Segunda is the largest town with the most bustle, but give up a few moments of serenity for the best variety of authentic cuisine, from burgers and fresh seafood to tapas and brunch. Or slip away into Esperanza, a tiny hamlet where you can swap surfing stories and fishing feats with local villagers over rounds of rum in an open-air bar by the sea.
