Your perfect Tennessee wedding has drawn to a close, you’ve made your grand exit, and it’s time for the honeymoon to begin! You’ve dreamed of a tropical escape, but you’re not sure which destination is right for your vacation style. Because the options can seem endless and all offer different perks, I had a chance to catch up with Kali Hanson, The Sand Lady from Royal Travel, and she shared some fabulous ideas for planning your romantic Caribbean honeymoon at one of the best resorts around!
No matter your personality, interests or style, Kali recommends one of Sandals all-inclusive resorts for honeymooners. An all-inclusive resort is a great way to make sure your honeymoon fits in your overall wedding budget. When you plan a Sandals all-inclusive honeymoon, your package includes your airfare, transfers to and from the airport, your room, unlimited quantities of food and drink (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), water sports, such as snorkeling and waterskiing, as well as all taxes, tips and gratuities. You won’t need to spend any money while you are on your honeymoon. So, leave all stress, worries and cares behind as you travel to your perfect oasis! But which spot is the best fit for you? Read on for Kali’s recommended destinations for every style of couple!
1. Adventure Seekers
St. Lucia has been called the Hawaii of the Caribbean because it has an inactive volcano, gorgeous beaches and lush tropical forests. This island is a quick half-day jaunt from Tennessee, compared to a full-day of flying to Hawaii. Hikers will enjoy climbing the world-famous Pitons, which soar straight up from the sapphire blue waters of the Caribbean. Thrill seekers will relish an ATV Safari along the wild Atlantic coastline where they may spot colorful tropical birds or a migrating whale on an ATV built for two. Adventurous sight seers won’t want to miss a historic tour through a banana plantation, a catamaran cruise featuring spectacular views of the majestic Pitons, or a stop at the Sulphur Springs drive-in-volcano and mud baths.
2. Party People
Jamaica invented the beach party. From Reggae in Negril to the nightlife of Montego Bay, social honeymooners will enjoy the entertainment and beach party mood found in Jamaica. The resorts in Montego Bay are just minutes from the airport, and the party starts as soon as you arrive. On the west coast, Negril is nicknamed the Capitol of Casual. With the most beautiful sunsets anywhere in the Caribbean, the reggae vibe heats up after dark. On the south coast of Jamaica, local musicians put on a fun show on the boardwalk after dinner. And in Ocho Rios
, honeymooners will enjoy mingling with other couples in a chic beach club atmosphere.
3. Beach Lovers
The Sandals resorts are located on 12 of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. The seven-mile beach in Negril, Jamaica is a world-famous, white sand beach where honeymooners will experience unrivaled sunsets. Located on one of the most exclusive out-islands of the Bahamas, the water of Emerald Bay
is a different shade of blue each hour of the day. St. Lucia boasts 365 different beaches – one for each day of the year. And, there is no need to leave your beach chair at Sandals where beach-side drink service is the standard.
4. The Ultimate Romantic
Each Sandals resort offers several LoveNest Suites
, which are the most romantic, intimate collection of villas and suites in the world. From suites with private plunge pools and outdoor grotto showers, to bedrooms with sliding glass walls opening to the most magnificent views of the Caribbean Sea, one of these suites will ensure an unforgettable honeymoon. Each LoveNest Suite also includes Sandals exclusive Personal Butler Service
. Your butler’s job is to enhance the romance and relaxation of each aspect of your stay by catering to your every need from unpacking your luggage to setting up an intimate candlelight dinner for two on your balcony. He will give you a cellphone that is a direct line to him, and he will take care of any requests you have during your honeymoon.
