Barbados has long been a honeymoon favourite thanks to year-round sunshine, seductive beaches and a laid-back lifestyle. Throw in some of the world’s best fine dining restaurants, a rum cocktail or three and the most romantic resorts – bookable with Culture Trip – and you’ll discover why couples fall in love with this Caribbean island as much as each other. Here’s pick of our favourite honeymoon resorts.
Only got eyes for each other? These enormous beach houses in Skeetes Bay are ideal for a honeymoon escape with masses of living space, an expansive patio deck, tropical garden with built-in barbeque, four poster bed and an infinity-edge pool and hot tub. Don’t worry about lifting a finger either: the villa’s concierge service will make restaurant reservations and arrange a private chef and spa services. Guests can also access sister property The Crane Resort.
Even if you’ve blown the budget on the wedding, you don’t have to miss out on a dream honeymoon in Barbados. This excellent value hotel is just as blissful as many of the island’s top hotels but without the eye-watering price tag. There are swimming pools with waterfalls, free watersports, a swish spa, a gorgeous white-sand beach and two restaurants, though rooms have kitchenettes if you’re hoping to keep costs down.
Screaming toddlers won’t spoil your romantic holiday at The Club. This adults-only, all-inclusive property on the west coast is a peaceful, grown-up retreat with four separate pools, a small spa, a beach bar and all sorts of included activities including sailing Hobie Cats, pool volleyball, rum tasting, guided walks and cooking classes. Alternatively, you can just sit back and work your way through the cocktail menu at the beach bar instead.
No one will blame you if you never leave your room at adults-only The Abidah. All 44 rooms at this glamorous boutique hotel overlooking Enterprise Bay come with a private jacuzzi and balcony and kimonos for lounging. Elsewhere, the all-inclusive package offers a full beachside service, top-notch dining at Remous restaurant, a lavish daily afternoon tea and complimentary flip flops and a beach bag.
