The Caribbean is a honeymooner’s paradise of infinite variety: thousands of lush green islands scattered across clear blue seas offering adventure, relaxation, and romance. With so much choice, the real challenge is choosing where to stay, so let Culture Trip help with our guide to some perfect honeymoon hotels in the Caribbean.
Sandals have done something really special in St. Lucia; this all inclusive hotel is the epitome of honeymoon luxe. Set on its own peninsula with a secluded mile-long beach on St. Lucia’s calmest waters, the flow between the stunning natural environment of St. Lucia and Sandals is seamless. Toast to a happily-ever-after with a complimentary bottle of wine and embrace the first night as newlyweds, with the hotel’s romantic gesture of flower petals on the bed. The morning after is a blissful haven as a fresh delivery of flowers and breakfast in bed are brought to your room. Exquisite over-the-water bungalows and butler service might just be enough to convince you to never leave.
Amanyara is one of the most beautiful hotels in the Caribbean. There is a symmetry to the luxurious hardwood pavilions and inviting pools that creates an energy flow that speaks to the soul. The 800-meter beach crystal-clear, reef-protected, waters are irresistible.
If you want exclusive, the private island resort of Jumby Bay, two miles offshore from Antigua, might just be the honeymoon destination you’re looking for. Arrive by private boat on the 300-acre island with three stunning white sand beaches, each fringed with tall swaying palms. Private villas with private pools, cathedral ceilings, and endless views of the bright blue Caribbean Sea offer the perfect honeymoon escape.
