WHY IT RATES: File this under the ‘influencer’ category. When people see celebrities staying at a certain hotel, flying a certain airline, driving a certain car, it tends to resonate. – Rich Thomaselli, TravelPulse Senior Editor

Sandals Royal Plantation – Understated elegance and exquisitely private, Sandals Royal Plantation is an intimate all-butler resort of just 74 ocean view suites tucked into a magnificent coral bluff. Renowned for unmatched attention to detail, this enclave of retro-chic sophistication showcases roaming peacocks and manicured lawn and has long been a favorite hideaway for the international jet set and literary elite, with the likes of Ian Fleming and Noel Coward seeking its casual island elegance and authentic Jamaican vibe back in their day. Today, exquisite original furnishings and new innovations - like Jamaica's only champagne and caviar bar - are designed to impress.
Rio Chico by Sandals Resorts – A breathtaking 14-acre villa located just outside of Ocho Rios, Rio Chico by Sandals Resorts is a six-bedroom private property that combines true beachfront luxury with lavish gardens reminiscent of a formal estate. With manicured lawns, lush tropical and heavily fruited gardens, lily ponds and ivy-covered stone bridges, the landscape sings English-country-garden meets Jamaican tropical paradise. Rio Chico, with a staff of highly-trained butlers, private chef and sous chef and housekeepers, is the epitome of old-world charm and luxury and perfect for large gatherings of friends or families who are looking for the height of luxury and exclusivity to the extreme.
