This Is The Best Beach Hotel In The World, According To The Experts

We wouldn't argue.

If you're lucky enough to travel down to the Caribbean, you do NOT want to skimp on a hotel that doesn't measure up to its spectacular surroundings.

Consider the Zemi Beach House instead. It's the new best beach hotel in the world, according to the annual Best of the Best awards from luxury hotel deals site Jetsetter.

The 69-suite resort lies on the remote island of Anguilla, which doesn't even have direct flights from the U.S. Once travelers arrive, though, they're rewarded with a resort spa tucked in a 300-year-old Thai house, a mud deck, immaculate suites and views of an ocean so sparkling, it almost hurts to look:

Zemi Beach House opened just a few months ago, and the island is enjoying a comeback after getting an initial boost in tourism about two decades ago, according to the New York Times.

"Fronting Shoal Bay East's two-mile stretch of fine white sand, the hotel has an array of water sports including snorkeling, kite surfing and boat racing," Jetsetter raves. "Personally, we'd recommend pulling a Bey and Jay and chartering a yacht—just one of many customized concierge services at your disposal. Back on land, get a heavenly taste of the island's flavors at 20 Knots, where fresh-caught seafood and Tiki-style drinks come with a side of ocean breezes."

Anguilla is known for being less touristy than other Caribbean islands due to its remoteness. To get there, you'll probably have to fly from Puerto Rico or take a boat or plane from nearby St. Maarten or another neighboring island. As a result, its beaches will stun even the savviest travelers.

Hotel rooms at Zemi Beach House start at about $350 per night on Jetsetter, though they're priced much higher on the resort's website.

Too complicated or pricey? You can always try a low-key, all-inclusive spot instead.
