A Couple’s Travel Guide to the Caribbean

Every year, couples flock to the Caribbean. With turquoise waters, warm weather, blue skies, endless adventure, and tranquil Caribbean couples’ resorts, it is easy to understand why it’s a top destination for romance.

Whether you’re looking for a honeymoon getaway, the opportunity to spend quality time together away from daily responsibilities, or to rekindle a relationship, no other place in the world is more inviting.

While couples choose the Caribbean for multiple reasons, its primary appeal is that the islands offer the perfect escape regardless of what they hope to experience.

A Caribbean holiday offers scuba diving or snorkelling to see marine life up close, hiking through a lush rainforest, going deep-sea fishing, enjoying a midnight stroll along a white sandy beach, taking an exciting tour, or simply kicking back and relaxing while spending quality time together.

These are some of the things you might be missing if you never get to visit.

An escape from reality

Just imagine being able to escape the hustle and bustle life at an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean. While you're here, your job, your bills and the other stressers of daily life will fade out of mind.

One resort that can help you attain that state of mind is the lavish Regency La Toc resort in Saint Lucia. You can stay in a cliff-side suite that overlooks the water with its mesmerising colour and cooling breezes.

“Glamorous” does not seem sufficient to describe this 210-acre estate surrounded by beautiful hillsides and picturesque coral bluffs. During the day, you can spend time on an executive-style golf course, dine at any one of the 27 nearby restaurants, and visit the crescent-shaped beach. You can follow all that up by retreating to a private suite for some alone time.

Elsewhere, in St. George’s, Grenada, the all-inclusive Sandals Grenada is an unexpected find. Designed with couples in mind, this resort moves away from tradition in many ways.

Some of the key features that are sure to create lifetime memories are the innovative swimming pools, pools that seem to float in the air, cascading waterfalls, lazy river pools, and private plunge pools.

One amazing aspect of your stay at Sandals Grenada is the exhilarating scents that come from different tropical blooms and spices on the Pink Gin Beach. Unlike any other resort in the Caribbean, this one takes romance to a new level.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica, is another place to keep in mind for a romantic retreat.

As one of Sandals’ largest all-inclusive resorts, Ochi is vast, but also incredibly private. This resort is stretched out over 100 acres of pure bliss, featuring 16 trendy restaurants and 11 bars as part of its beach club.

Regardless if you’re visiting the Caribbean for your anniversary, as a dating couple, or to get married, this large resort offers amenities beyond the expected.

Room features at all-inclusive resort include Tranquility Blissful Beds, spa-style bathrooms, oval-shaped lounging tubs on the balcony with clear a view of the ocean, and Tranquility Soaking Tubs specially designed for two.

Exploration and new adventures

If you and your partner are interested in exploration and exciting adventures, Montego Bay in Jamaica offers one of the best romantic getaways in the Caribbean.

Designed as a couple’s retreat in the Caribbean, this Sandals all-inclusive resort here offers plenty to see and do. Protected by a reef, it ranks as one of the top private beach getaways for couples.

At Sandals Montego Bay, you can participate in a wide range of watersports without dealing with crowds. Even though this island is known for its casual lifestyle, be prepared to discover many exciting new things on and off-site.

You can take a tour high into the rainforest to see “tree people,” shop for handcrafted goods, go four-wheeling, and much more. After a busy day of fun, you can experience authentic regional cuisine at one of nine gourmet restaurants and then return to a private and beautifully decorated seaside suite.

Sandals Barbados is an all-inclusive Sandals resort designed specifically for the utmost comfort, relaxation, fun, and exploration. This couple’s paradise retreat spans three villages, each of them unique.

Along with cuisine from around the world, you can use your time on the island to explore or simply soak up the sun on the gorgeous beach. It also boasts the longest and largest lagoon pool in Barbados, elite butler service, and a host of other amenities to make your stay memorable. For distinguished luxury, this Sandals resort earns high marks.

A romantic getaway at its finest

The Grande Antigua in St. John’s is a superior choice for romantic Caribbean holidays for couples. Year after year, top travel publications voted Sandals Grande Antigua as the “World’s Most Romantic Resort.”

Not only are you steps away from the pristine Dickenson Bay beach, but this stunning resort also boasts six-star villas, some nestled on the hillside and others close to the water.

The winding pathways and towering palm trees complement this oceanside garden oasis. As a unique combination of chic sophistication and European charm, this is the perfect all-inclusive for couples to make new memories together.

In Whitehouse, Jamaica, the South Coast resort is ideal if you want to solidify your love connection. Formally called Sandals Whitehouse, Sandals South Coast is an all-inclusive beachfront paradise that sits on a 500-acre nature preserve.

Along with enjoying land and water activities on the two-mile stretch of beach, you can relax by one of three swimming pools, snuggle in front of a massive bonfire at night on the beach, dine at Sushi on the Sand, and stay in an over-the-water bungalow. You have everything that you could need at your fingertips while still having all of the privacy that you want.

Sandals Negril located on the western tip of the island is an exceptional choice for a romantic getaway. It is best known for its seven-mile beach, where couples can dance barefoot under the moonlight and stars. The green tropical gardens that envelop this resort add charm. From the minute that you arrive, you will recognize the warm hospitality offered by the staff there.

The people at Sandals Negril go out of their way to provide exemplary service by learning your name and paying close attention to every detail. After a special breakfast in bed, you and your loved one can visit different shops and eateries or frolic nearby at Mayfield Falls.
