    Click on the tabs above to find out more about us, our holidays and the islands of the Caribbean. 

    A Caribbean Expressions holiday is tailor-made according to your exact requirements. The basis of our truly bespoke holidays lies in the wide range and diversity of islands and hotel accommodation that we have selected to offer you. Reflecting the charm and character of the Caribbean islands, our hotels provide the very best quality of accommodation, service and facilities in the Caribbean. There is a choice to suit a range of budgets as well as special interests, from honeymooners to families, from sailing enthusiasts to spa treatment devotees.

    Our islands
    From the better-known and much-loved islands such as Barbados, Jamaica, Antigua and St Lucia to the less well-known such as Nevis, Anguilla, Grenada and the Virgin Islands plus the French-speaking islands of Guadeloupe, St Martin and St Barts, Caribbean Expressions offers you a choice of islands of amazingly varied scenery and charm.

    Multi-island combinations
    This is what we really enjoy and where our knowledge of the Caribbean and our skill as a tour operator come to the fore. Remember that we know the islands and have done a variety of island-hopping combinations ourselves. Popular combinations might be Tobago, Barbados and St Lucia or Barbados, the Grenadines and Grenada or Antigua Anguilla and Nevis. Just let us your plans and we will execute them for you.

    Our hotels
    Our hotels are the very best on each island in the Caribbean. They have been chosen by us because they have something of intrinsic value for our clients. Our hotels include sophisticated Carlisle Bay on Antigua, genteel Coral Reef Club on Barbados, charming Cotton House on Mustique, fragrant Round Hill on Jamaica and the impeccable Little Dix Bay in the British Virgin Islands. Each description in this holiday guide is a personal description which conveys the character of each one whilst providing indispensable facts.

    Flexible board basis
    We offer you a range of meal choices from room only, where you pay extra either to us in advance or direct to the hotel for the meals you eat, to all-inclusive, where all meals and drinks by the glass are included. Some hotels opt for one or other arrangement, others offer you a choice. On Barbados many of the hotels offer a dine around option if you book half-board for your entire stay, which allows you to exchange your dinner at the hotel for a dinner at a local restaurant. Families often find the full board or all-inclusive arrangement excellent value for money, whilst people who want to dine out and about more might find a room only or a bed and breakfast arrangement more to their liking.

    Scheduled flights
    We have worked with British Airways for many years and include their scheduled flights in our basic holiday prices. Virgin Atlantic is also offered on applicable routes.
    Premium cabins: We offer you advantageous prices for flying in the premium cabins with all our airlines. With British Airways there is a choice of Club on all routes, FIRST on Barbados and World Traveller Plus is available on Barbados, St Lucia,Grenada, Tobago, and Nassau. Virgin Atlantic offer Upper Class and Premium Economy on all their routes to the Caribbean. The best possible supplement for these services can be provided by calling us.

    Private charters
    For many people, a private charter is the best way to island hop in the Caribbean. In a region of small islands, private aircraft are plentiful and have become the way to travel around. For certain destinations, we include private charters automatically in the holiday price, but on a shared basis, meaning that you may travel on the aircraft with the maximum number the plane holds, usually up to 5 or 8 passengers. However, if you want the privacy of your own plane, then Caribbean Expressions will arrange this for you in advance. The most frequently used routes for private charters are between Barbados and Mustique or between Antigua and Anguilla, Nevis and St Barts. Private charters are possible between most Caribbean islands - just ask us for a price.

    Transfer arrangements
    Caribbean Expressions has arranged for you to have private taxi transfers arranged by us or by the hotel. If the hotel makes the arrangements it is possible that you will share the taxi, which on many islands is a mini-bus or space wagon type vehicle seating up to 7 passengers, with other hotel guests arriving on the same flight. Sometimes these vehicles are air-conditioned.

    Chauffeur-driven transfers in the UK
    Caribbean Expressions can offer you the services of a chauffeur-driven transfer from your home to the airport. The cost varies according to the distance to the airport. Contact us for details.

    Secure support here and abroad
    We offer you comfort and security by making all your holiday arrangements for you without compromising your individuality. You are provided with an emergency contact number here in the UK and usually also a local contact number of an agent on a particular island but we do not always employ ‘meet and greet’ representatives on purpose in order to maintain a feeling of independence. Our clients want discreet help and to this end we have arranged for someone to be available to will visit you at your hotel during your stay on the following islands: St Lucia, Antigua, Nevis, Barbados, Grenada.

    Automatic concierge service
    Caribbean Expressions extends its bespoke service to helping ensure that the detail is right when you get to your destination. We are happy to make advance reservations for you, perhaps for a table at the Cliff on Barbados or a deep-sea fishing trip. Just let us know and we will do our best to help. This is and always has been an integral part of the all-encompassing service we offer, long before the term 'concierge service' started to be used to describe just what we have always done, naturally and free of charge.

    Islands of the Caribbean
    Think of the Caribbean, and you can’t help but picture palm-fringed beaches and gin-clear seas, rum punch cocktails and steel drum bands. The Caribbean is the perfect destination for a luxury holiday, offering sunshine, culture, activities and wonderful hotels. From Antigua to Grenada, the Caribbean is studded with some of the most indulgent and exclusive private-island hotels and beach resorts on earth. For most visitors, that’s more than enough: getting away from the beach means going out for a snorkel or hopping out on a windsurfer. Who can blame them? Sifted by the steady, gentle Tradewinds, with excellent coral reefs and an abundance of marine life, the Caribbean is a watersports Promised Land. However, dig a little deeper, and the Caribbean is a fascinating, diverse holiday destination in its own right, suffused in history, with each island boasting its own unique character and personality. From the forts of Jamaica and churches of Barbados to the sizzling carnivals of Cuba and Trinidad, the Caribbean resounds with echoes of its colonial past, with an architecture and attitude to match. Hire a car and you’ll stumble across cricket games, church choirs and beach bars with spontaneous parties – whilst being a fabulous place just to fly and flop, the Caribbean is also wonderfully rewarding to explore. Geographically, the islands vary dramatically. As a general rule, the low-lying coral islands – the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, and the islands of the Venezuelan coast – have the best bone-white beaches and swimming, but are less interesting inland. Volcanic islands by contrast – for example, the Windward Islands such as St Lucia, St Vincent and Grenada – are more dramatic, covered in steep, tangled forest plunging dramatically into the sea, with classic crescent bays and palm-tree beaches, brilliant for birdwatching and hiking, mountain-biking and nature-trails.

    Gems of the Caribbean
    Hiking in St Lucia up the famous Piton mountains, as well as Jump Up parties every Friday; hundreds of flat, sandy islands in the Bahamas; exploring the parishes of Barbados; the forested slopes of Jamaica’s Blue Mountains, as well its vibrant reggae scene; private island resorts in the Grenadines; the national cricket pitch of tiny Nevis; the long white beaches and turquoise seas of Anguilla.
