A hotel with history, the Cavalier is as well known as its former guests – from Scott F Fitzgerald to Frank Sinatra. Originally opened in 1927 and fully renovated and restored 90 years later, it has retained original features and offers a day spa, a distillery and high-end restaurants, all surrounded by beautiful gardens. With the reopening of the original Beach Club later this year (2018), the Cavalier will offer the perfect luxury resort complete with infinity pool, live events and cabanas to relax in.
With a tempting oceanfront, beautiful national parks and a lively city center to explore, the right hotel can be your stepping stone to seeing the sights of Virginia Beach, whether you’re a beach bum or bar-hopper. And there are plenty of good options…with infinity pools, forest cabins or Frank Sinatra’s former beach-side bolt-hole among them, Virginia Beach certainly isn’t short of amazing accommodation. If you’re a family with kids to keep an eye on the numerous resorts will be welcome – and they don’t all cost the earth. Couples can opt for romantic bed and breakfasts, spa resorts or sky bars – or maybe a little of each for a vacation they’ll never forget.
