Paradise Found: Romance in the Caribbean

Paradise Found: Romance in the Caribbean

Need some romance in your life? If you and your partner are looking for the ideal destination for your next holiday then look no further than the Caribbean. After all, where could be better to rekindle that spark or spend some quality time together than a white-sand, palm-fringed beach under a blazing sun?

Time out from an increasingly busy life, just the two of you, is precious and if it’s been a while, then it’s time to get booking your place in the sun. When it comes to romantic breaks, all-inclusive holidays have the edge. With everything taken care of for you, you’ll be free to pour all your energies into romance – no stressing about how to get from A to B or how much that last round of cocktails may have set you back.

If you’re keen to spend some time as a couple, one of the range of Sandals holidays could be ideal. Designed for two people in love only, these all-inclusive packages include ultra-luxurious rooms just made for two, gourmet dining by candlelight and plenty of romantic secluded spots, all set in an exotic location. One of the best destinations for a Sandals holiday is St Lucia. Part of the Windward Isles, this idyllic Caribbean island is home to stunning volcanic scenery, sweeping bays backed by sandy beaches and some of the best sunsets anywhere in the world.

St Lucia holidays can be as adventurous or as laidback as you want them to be – simply lounge on the beach, sip cocktails by the pool and dine under the stars or hire a Jeep and get out among the island’s superlative scenery. If you do decide to get out and about, be sure to visit the famous Pitons (volcanic plugs) for a unique photo opportunity, take a walk in the beautiful botanic gardens and, if you’re here between March and September, spot leatherback turtles coming ashore to nest.

Accommodation on the island is opulent enough to please even the pickiest honeymooner. Sandals Halcyon Beach on Choc Bay is located right on the beach, with cottage-style gardens and English-inspired rooms. Guests here can take to the water for water sports including wakeboarding, aquatriking and even free scuba diving before dining over it at the Pier restaurant, which specialises in Caribbean cuisine. There is also a full-service spa and free green fees at the nearby Sandals Regency La Toc Golf Resort & Spa.

Sandals Grande St Lucian Spa & Beach Resort straddles a peninsula for maximum beach frontage. Here you can stay in one of the elegant rooms or splash out on a Rondoval Suite which comes with its own plunge pool, outdoor whirlpool and grotto shower. There are numerous dining options on-site and activities such as tennis, water sports and aerobics are also all included.

With so many different packages to choose from, you’re sure to find the ideal one for you, so schedule in some time for romance and start the hunt for your (other) perfect match.
