Carleton Varney states the Lovango vacation resort off St. John delivers an island idyll

Caribbean-blue umbrellas echo the color of the sea at the Lovango Resort and Beach Club on an island off St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

So how several islands have you been to? Potentially you have frequented the Hawaiian islands? Or these in the attractive Baltic? Or destinations in the Mediterranean — Mallorca, probably, or Ibiza or Santorini? 

Floridians have possibly taken a trip to the Caribbean. The Bahamas is just off the coastline, and other islands are commonly accessible. Have you visited St. Croix, St. Thomas, St. John, Aruba or Barbados? 

The latter are all well-liked. But you most likely have never been to the island of Lovango? It is a new hideaway, some 10 minutes by ferry off the coast of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands, near the Caneel Bay area. 

Caneel Bay was originally established by the late Laurance Spelman Rockefeller as just one of the destinations in the RockResorts chain. But rampages by back-to-back hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017 left the famed resort a wreck, perhaps awaiting some entrepreneur to once again create an island paradise.
