Beach view with a big palm show at Tamarind Reef Resort

If serenity were an Olympic event, Martin Oliver would be a gold-medal shoo-in. In fact, the general manager of the Tamarind Reef Resort & Green Cay Marina on St. Croix USVI has a go-to maneuver when it comes to dealing with the pressures of an extra challenging day in the workplace. “It’s the view out of my office window," he says. "If things are particularly hectic, I just stop and take a look at it. On a clear day, I can see St. Thomas, St. John and the other US Virgin Islands within 40 or 50 miles. It's clear blue ocean and palm trees. It might not get rid of all the stress, but it makes life easier."
