Love is in the air! Get your chance at romance by escaping to these romantic resorts and making this year a Caribbean Valentines Day
Valentine’s Day is on everyone’s mind. Flowers, chocolates, jewelry. These are all fine gifts but the best gift of all is a romantic Caribbean escape for you and your love. There are plenty of prime destinations in this tropical region filled with resorts designed for romance. Which one will you choose?
Tortuga Bay – Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
The stunning interiors here were designed by iconic fashion legend Oscar de la Renta. It’s a small and exclusive resort with just 30 rooms, each one elegantly appointed with four-post beds and canopies. Deep hot tubs and pampering toiletries by L’Occitane will make your stay even more luxurious. This place is secluded and made for romance. The staff even helps set the mood by providing a drawn bath with red flower petals and tea lights. It’s this kind of attention to detail that make this place ripe for romance.
Jade Mountain Resort – Soufriere, Soufriere Quarter, St. Lucia
Romance isn’t cheap but it’s well worth it at the Jade Mountain Resort. The 29 gigantic suites here have a unique feature. Each one has an open fourth wall that opens up to the sea and includes an elevated whirlpool tub and private infinity pool. It’s free of distractions with no children allowed (or radio or TV for that matter) so it allows the perfect place to reconnect. Attentive service and organic cuisine also make it one of the best ways to get away with your love. It may cost over $1500 per night, but at least you’re getting 4500 Ultimate Rewards if using your Chase Sapphire Reserve!
Baoase Luxury Resort – Willemstad, Curacao
This resort proves that it’s the little things that make every bit of difference. You’ll delight in the sweet little gift bags you’ll find on your bed. Or maybe you fancy the simple candle-lit ambiance throughout the resort. Rooms here are opulent as are the villas. Some even have private pools. With a tranquil beach and plenty of privacy, this is one of the most romantic places you can ever hope to find yourself in.
Spice Island Beach Resort – St. George’s, Saint George Parish, Grenada
An all-inclusive resort, Spice Island Beach Resort is an exquisite choice for a romantic getaway. Each of the 64 suites is designed with aplomb amidst a completely serene beach location. It’s upscale yet laid-back enough to give you that Caribbean vibe. The spa and restaurants are top notch and while there are many fun activities, it’s not hard to enjoy some quiet time.
The Caves – Negril, Jamaica
This adults only resort of romance is very private. There are only 11 private cottages and suites, each one of them completely original in design. All-inclusive, this cliff-side romantic destination offers plenty for the more adventuresome couple. An Aveda spa, free cooking classes, and a bar with the finest top-shelf spirits are all fantastic amenities. While luxurious, it’s laid back so if outdoor showers are your thing, you’re going to love it here.
One & Only Ocean Club – Paradise Island, New Providence Island, Bahamas
It’s a one of a kind resort. While you’ll have complete access to the amenities at Atlantis, you won’t be subjected to the crowds which is a huge plus.
