Create That Idyllic Honeymoon Experience with These Vacation Getaways

While your wedding day will go down as one of the most memorable moments of your life, don’t overlook the importance of planning a romantic honeymoon to cap off this tremendous milestone.

Knowing the history behind honeymoons

Honeymoons have been a part of Western culture since the early 19th century, when couples in Great Britain would take a bridal tour, to visit relatives who were unable to attend the wedding.

But the honeymoon we know of today (pure holiday getaway) became widespread during the Belle Époque, and, in fact, helped to issue a push toward mass tourism. During this time, the most typical honeymoons would take place in Rome, Verona, or Venice.

While these European destinations are still a wonderful setting for your honeymoon, couples these days have a lot more options – including closer to home – for how to celebrate their nuptials.

Honeymooning in the Caribbean

More and more couples these days are discovering all that the Caribbean has to offer for their honeymoons. With endless beaches, unforgettable sunsets and sunrises, rich culture, unbelievable food and gracious hosts, the islands that make up the Caribbean are worth looking closely at as you decide how best to celebrate your love.

The honeymoon retreats we’ve included below offer newlyweds the best in romance, seclusion, luxury, and nature, and, because of how close they are to the states, they’re often far more affordable than traveling halfway across the country.

St. Lucia – Jade Mountain

Jade Mountain is a AAA 5 Diamond resort – one of only a few in the entire Caribbean. On top of that, Jade Mountain is the only resort in St. Lucia that boats views of both the Piti and Gros Piton mountains.

What makes Jade Mountain a great honeymoon spot? The rooms are purposely techno-free, meaning no phones, no radio, and no television (Wi-Fi access is available). This ensures that guests can enjoy the exclusivity and privacy of Jade Mountain – including the many restaurants, bars, boutiques, galleries, spas, and beaches nearby – without the distractions of normal day life.

Turks and Caicos – Amanyara

Seclusion is the focal point of the exquisite Amanyara, thanks to its low-lying rooflines, and timber pavilions. Amanyara is the perfect blend of luxury and nature, as the resort strives to maintain a harmonious balance with its island environs.

When you stay at Amanyara, you’ll enjoy a pavilion with three retractable sides to welcome the outdoors in, a king-size bed, daybeds, flat-screen televisions, terraces and more.

The resort’s name derives from aman, which is the Sanskrit word for peace, and yara, which means “place” in the language of the indigenous Arawak Indians. Upon first arrival, you’ll see why the resort is so aptly named. The resort’s isolated location is pristine, as it’s well removed from much of the development of the island, presenting an air of tranquility that honeymooners long for.
