In this same place, views of the sparkling Caribbean Sea can be seen from your bedroom as the gentle ocean waves provide the relaxing soundtrack to your vacation. Ahhhh, paradise. W Retreat & Spa ? Vieques Island hopes to turn those daydreams into reality.
On the shores of this secluded island, W Retreat & Spa offers a tranquil island experience that has continued to win awards and find its place on lists like Condé Nast Traveler's 2011 Hot List and Travel & Leisure's 2011 It List. Out of 318 hotels ranked by U.S. News Travel as Best Hotels in Puerto in 2013, W Retreat & Spa came in fourth.
The beauty of this hotel lies in its charmed island location paired with its high-end indulgences. Some of those amenities can be found in the variety of accommodation choices. One room of highlight is the Fantastic Garden Retreat located in a private corner area of the property. An oversized patio provides ideal views of the tropical garden and can be used for hosting friends and family. Tall ceilings give the space a more open feel and tiled flooring keeps guests cool in the warm Puerto Rican weather.
Throw your cares into the wind, because with the signature Whatever/Whenever® service, every want and need will always be taken care of. Speaking of indulging, the outdoor infinity-edge WET® splash pool is a surreal experience where you can spend all day basking in the sun and lounging on sunbeds while the pool staff oblige you with any necessity you desire. While you’re relaxing, might as well enjoy a colorful cocktail served up by W mixologists against the backdrop of the some of today’s best tunes to set the mood.
When it’s time for a more substantial meal, be sure to check out Sorcé (sore-say) and discover the magic behind gastronomy. Chefs blend together cultural influences as well as traditional tastes passed down from generations of Viequenses to create a menu at Sorcé that is distinctively different and mouth-wateringly flavorful. Signature dishes like fresh-catch fish marinated in a local mojo recipe and a Viequense version of bouillabaisse, or seafood soup, are sure to get your taste buds jumping. Of course, being in Puerto Rico, pairing your dinner with a rum cocktail is a given and can be ordered as flights.
