The paradise islands of the Caribbean offer soft white sands, turquoise waters, exquisite dining and sumptuous suites – the perfect recipe for a romantic escape. Here are just a couple of our favourite resorts.
Stolentime by Rendezvous, St Lucia
This award-winning all-inclusive resort has been designed exclusively for couples so you needn’t worry about your special moments being disturbed by little ones. The two-mile stretch of Malabar Beach provides a stunning setting for romantic strolls and you can retreat to one of the secret spots dotted around the lazy river and pretty rockery. When you’re feeling peckish or fancy another icy cocktail, simply stick your flag in the sand for beach service. The resort offers a host of activities including watersports, tennis and archery as well as candlelit dinners, treatments at the palm-enshrouded spa and nightly tastings at the chic Champagne bar.
The resort’s fabulous free wedding package includes a bouquet, cake, decorations, a couple’s massage and breakfast in bed. You can also customise your dream wedding, renew your vows or enjoy a special honeymoon here. Opt for an indulgent ‘in-room retreat’ for a romantic evening of candlelight, petals, chocolate truffles and Champagne – perfect for any romantic occasion.
Ocean Two Resort By Ocean Hotels, Barbados
This modern apartment-style resort is a great venue for chilled out weddings, honeymoons or romantic breaks. The sleek and spacious suites overlook a spectacular white-sand beach and the fantastic roof-top terrace features an adult-only plunge pool and spellbinding views over the south coast of Barbados – the sunsets are particularly memorable. The one and two bedroom suites are equipped to the highest standards with full kitchen facilities so you have the option of enjoying romantic meals in or venturing out to discover St Lawrence Gap’s vibrant restaurant scene. On-site you will find a restaurant, lounge bar and swim-up bar and don’t miss the twice-daily happy hour at the coconut station where you can order a fresh coconut laced with rum.
The glittering white sands and warm azure waters of the Caribbean are the epitome of tropical paradise. Spend lazy days in the sun or don a snorkel and mask to discover a spectacular underwater world.
