 No Cell Phones: Carambola's secluded location makes it difficult for cell phone reception within the resort. Most guests view this as a benefit, since it is one of the few places in the Caribbean where you do not have to listen to cell phone tones or one way conversations. However, most cell phones work just fine once you get to the other side of our hill - so you can check your messages and make any necessary calls by driving just a few minutes from the resort. You can still stay in touch while sightseeing and then return to the calm, relaxing, cell-phone-free environment at Carambola Beach Resort.

 Dive Center: 

Cane Bay Dive Shop has a shop located right on the beach at Carambola Beach Resort. Cane Bay Dive Shop is a full service PADI 5-star IDC dive center, featuring retail, repair, and instructional facilities. Whether you need your first certification, advanced, EFR, Divemaster, or specialty classes, Cane Bay Dive Shop can arrange day or evening classes for private instruction through any size group. Cane Bay Dive Shop also accepts referrals from other associations. It was the FIRST Dive Shop in St. Croix to feature NITROX diving, classes, and air fills. 

 Although many dive sites are easily accessible from shore, there are some that do require boats. Since Cane Bay Dive Shop is in the heart of all the best diving on St. Croix and in the Caribbean, there is no need for large boats with big groups or long boat rides. Cane Bay Dive Shop has the most unique and state of the art inflatable dive boats. These 2Oft pontoon boats were designed for navy seals with extremely easy entrances and exits through the hull of the boat. The boats are fast and very comfortable, with a maximum of six divers per boat. This gives the freedom to take as little as two divers at a time, or to schedule private dives at your convenience. The boats are also available for unique snorkel and sightseeing trips along the North Shore and from Divi Carina Bay Resort.  

 Private Boat dives are two to six people.  Larger Groups may now dive from the 36 ft Newton Dive Boat. 

When taking a break from diving, Spa de la Mer offers guests a revitalizing experience for the body, mind and soul.

 Select from a delectable menu of:

  • massages
  • facials
  • manicures and pedicures
  • hair treatments and body treatment

If you are looking for something more active, the Carambola Golf & Country Club is truly one of the great treasures of American golf. Winding through a lush, tropical valley, it lies adjacent to Carambola Beach Resort & Spa.

 Commissioned by Laurance Rockefeller, the course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., one of the most highly respected designers of the 20th century. Carambola opened in 1966 to rave reviews and was considered by the master designer himself to be one of his finest courses. This Robert Trent Jones signature course is the recipient of Golf Magazine’s Gold Medal Award and a "must play" for any true lover of the game of golf.
