In Barbados, romance is everywhere. The stunning sunsets over the Caribbean Sea, the sound of the waves lapping gently on the shore, the pristine beaches and island breezes all make this small island paradise a perfect honeymoon destination.
If you are considering Barbados for your honeymoon or romantic getaway, here are a few considerations to make your stay unforgettable.
Your own home away from home
Nothing says romance like a personal luxury home at the exclusive Royal Westmoreland Resort. Instead of the hustle and bustle of a busy all-inclusive, consider your very own house or villa with beautiful views in this private community located in the highly sought after St. James Parish. With all the amenities of a full service resort but the privacy of your own Bajan home, you won’t need to go farther than your own pool for relaxation or a romantic dinner with a private chef. Over the years this unmatched private, five-star setting has attracted members of royalty, sports stars and celebrities such as Kiera Knightley, Rihanna, Hugh Grant, Sir Richard Branson and Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber. Royal Westmoreland’s concierge can also arrange activities, private drivers and excursions to some of Barbados’ most romantic spots including the rock pools at Bathsheba, Harrison’s Cave, the legendary St Nicholas Abbey, private catamaran boat cruises and even a chance to swim with wild sea turtles.
Just a short drive from your private home is the island’s most romantic restaurant, The Tides. This stunning spot is situated at the water’s edge on Barbados’ platinum west and offers an exclusive romantic setting with top rated culinary prowess. Book a sunset, sea view table and enjoy the outstanding service while indulging in Chef Guy Beasley’s unparalleled gastronomical delights.
Paddle into the sunset
Even honeymooners need to get out! There are lots of activities on the island from sunset cruises to swimming with the turtles, but the island’s newest craze and a perfect activity for couples is Stand Up Paddleboarding. Paddle Barbados offers lessons and tours at stunning Carlisle Bay. The bay offers easy access to crystal clear, calm blue waters and light offshore winds. It’s an ideal location for our first time paddlers. After your time on the water, relax with spectacular views at Dipper’s Beach Bar, the local beach front watering hole.
