Travel Truffle: Vieques Island


You may think at first that I'm biased with this particular destination and you might be right. I was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico so I most certainly think that everything about this Enchanted Island is absolutely marvelous. Well, the Island of Vieques is a municipality of Puerto Rico that lies 8 miles east of the Puerto Rican mainland. Getting there is easy - ferry or plane. And I promise, the beaches you will see are straight out of a movie or magazine. The W Retreat and Spa in Vieques Island opened just a few years back and sits on 30 acres of stunning beachfront land. 


The hotel and bold furnishings were all designed by Patricia Urquiola and produced for the hotel by B&B Italia.

  1. This looks like absolute heaven. I haven't been to Puerto Rico since I was 14, I need to get back ASAP. You're lucky you have a perfect reason to go there all the time!

  3. I have not been to PR, but when I do I definitely want to stay here. What hotels do you recommend in San Juan? At the moment, I'm crushing over the One&Only Palmilla in Cabo. xo Rue Le Chat ~ www.ruelechat.com
