Our 13 Favorite Luxury Hotels In The Caribbean (PHOTOS)

While there are many great budget-friendly hotels in the Caribbean, the islands are also known for their luxury properties, where guests are treated to day trips aboard yachts, couples are offered massages in sumptuous spas and rooms are twice the size of a New York apartment (although, we guess it's not too hard to be).

We've compiled a list of our favorite luxury hotels in the Caribbean so you can start planning what to do after your New Year's resolution of winning the lottery comes true. (That's not a new year's resolution, but, really, who hasn't had that on the list for at least a decade?)
