Escape to the Caribbean with two luxe off-the-beaten-path resorts

Dreaming of a sandy beach, attentive service and soft waves that curl over the tips of your toes? We know just the place to send you. Well, two places, and they’re both in the Caribbean.

Mention the region to a reasonably well-traveled Texan, and she’ll invariably picture interchangeable islands with crowded beaches, boring rum punches and blah breakfast buffets. That’s not what you’re after. You want pampering. You want delicious. And, just as important, you want to feel like you’re some place your co-workers haven’t even considered.

That’s why you’ll want to put two hot spots — Cuisinart Golf Resort and Spa on Anguilla and Silversands Resort on Grenada — on your list.

Maybe you’re thinking the whole Caribbean is still reeling from Hurricane Irma’s one-two punch a couple of years ago, which hit Puerto Rico and a few smaller islands particularly hard. While some areas are, indeed, still rebuilding, much of the region is doing just fine.
