Best Caribbean Islands For Romance
Honeymooners don't have a monopoly on romance. Rekindle lost love or ignite a new relationship with a getaway to one of these passion-infused Caribbean hot spots. Let the sand, the sunsets and the daiquiris do the hard work for you.
Where: St. Lucia
On St. Lucia's unspoiled southwestern Caribbean coast lies Anse Chastanet Resort, a secluded oasis. Rooms and deluxe suites are set into a lush green hillside overlooking one of the island's most beautiful beaches. Entire walls open up to panoramic vistas and showers-with-a-view are ad added exclusive luxury. The resort's intimate size ensures a level of privacy and exceptional service catering to those in search of an amorous adventure.
Where: The Grenadines
A private intimate island set among 1,400 acres in the Grenadines, Mustique is a favorite among honeymooners and those in search of pure romance. Accommodation is in luxurious villas and guests are pampered by three dedicated staff for each accommodation unit. Walk along deserted beaches, indulge in luxurious spa treatments and enjoy candlelit dinners prepared and served in the privacy of your own villa.
Where: British Virgin Islands
With a two to one staff to guest ratio and a price tag to rival the national debt of a small country, a romantic interlude on Sir Richard Branson's Necker Island may repair your heart while breaking the bank. If money is no object and romance is your subject, head to BVI's most luxurious and intimate island for some 'necking' among the stars (and celebrities). About 25 miles southeast of Necker Island lies Peter Island with its three to one staff to guest ratio, 52 guest rooms and three villa estates. Spoil your special someone with helicopter tours, private scuba diving, spa services and gourmet meals.
Offering seclusion, wind-swept white sand beaches and all the allure of a romance novel, Tobago, the real life setting for Robinson Crusoe, is an island paradise that attracts couples seeking a return to the simplicity of life and love. Hotels like Le Grand Courlan Resort & Spa and the Hilton Tobago are lovers' hot spots, with romance packages, weddings on the beach, couples spa services and indulgent honeymoon extras.
Where: Abaco Islands
The Abaco islands are a cluster of islands and islets located in the northernmost "out islands" of the Bahamas. They are an ideal destination for those who prefer to stay away from the large hotels of the main islands. A handful of private villas, small guesthouses and resorts dot the narrow strip of white sandy beaches that make up the islands, promising an intimate and romantic setting for your next sojourn with someone special.
