When it comes to the Caribbean you are totally spoilt for choice with no less than 7000 islands that make up the Caribbean!
Each Caribbean island though share the same beauty, has something very different and equally alluring to offer. Sad to be bringing our delightful Caribbean honeymoon inspiration series with Nu Bride Ambassador Sandals to an end, today we introduce you sunny Saint Lucia and the gorgeous island of Jamaica, one of the largest Caribbean islands, my heritage and also the birth home of Gordon Butch Stewart the owner of Sandals resorts.
The birthplace of Blue Mountain Coffee, reggae and jerk, Jamaica is an island filled with natural beauty that will take your breath away.
It is also home to some of the friendliest and most hospitable people you will ever meet.
What makes Jamaica unique is that it has something for everyone. For those keen to dive into the heart of a bustling Caribbean town, Montego Bay, Jamaica’s second largest city is the perfect choice, as it’s vibrant and jam-packed with fun activities to keep you busy. Characterised by lush foliage, rolling mountains.
Negril, known as the exotic playground of choice for fun-loving pleasure seekers, offers a blissful ambiance of laid-back cool and uninhibited revelry, with seven miles of unimaginably silky white sand beach and Whitehouse, on Jamaica’s largely undeveloped South Coast, offers the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
For those looking for a romantic trip to Jamaica, Sandals Ochi Beach Resort is the perfect option. Grandly set on over one hundred pristine acres of lush rolling hillside and tropical gardens on the beautiful North Coast of Jamaica, Sandals Ochi boasts a hot new beach club, 16 gourmet restaurants, 11 bars including the Caribbean’s first speakeasy, two luxurious Red Lane® Spas and nearby access to one of the Caribbean’s finest golf courses, Sandals Golf & Country Club.
For those keen to experience Sandals’ Luxury Included® (all-inclusive) offering with their families on a Jamaican retreat. Beaches Resorts are the ideal option for those looking for a multi-generational celebration with the ones they love. Perfect for, Buddymoons; growing in popularity, instead of leaving family and friends at home following the wedding ceremony, an increasing number of couples are deciding to fly off to sunnier climes to continue the celebration with their loved ones in tow.
Discover the world-renowned Dunn’s River Falls, Ocho Rios, located roughly in the centre of Jamaica’s North coast, is a nature lover’s paradise. It even boasts Fern Gully, a winding five-mile shallow canyon carved out by a long–dried–up river, that now hosts over 500 species of ferns and some tropical flora that you would be hard–pressed to find outside of a rainforest.
Whilst in Jamaica, escape to a world of rustic charm at The River Bumpkin Farm. Nestled in the heart of the lush Trelawny forests, this gorgeous plantation takes you off-the-beaten-path to a site brimming with exciting eco-excursions. With everything from river tubing and kayaking down the Martha Brae River to bicycle trekking past historic ruins, The River Bumpkin Farm is the perfect place to enjoy.
Boasting a drive–through volcano, as well as its own National Rain Forest Reserve with over 19,000 colour–splashed acres of natural wonders, Saint Lucia’s exotic beauty truly captures the luxuriant allure of the Caribbean. From the distinctive twin peaks of Les Pitons to the cascading majesty of Diamond Falls and the translucent turquoise sea that frames it all, Saint Lucia dazzles the eye as it seduces the body and spirit.
Saint Lucia is also renowned as one of the top sites for whale watching in the entire world. Every year over 20 species of whales are sighted from the island’s pristine shores. From humpback, pilot and sperm whales to spinning and spotted dolphins, visitors can observe these colossal mammals as they cavort and frolic in their natural habitat.
With Sandals’ exclusive Stay at 1 Play at 3 programme, guests staying at a Sandals resort on Saint Lucia get three holidays for the price of one as they are able to experience all the restaurants, all the beaches and every amenity at all three resorts. With the Stay at 1 Play at 3 programme, guests’ dining options expand to 27.
They can also enjoy the vibrant entertainment that’s ever-changing from night-to-night at all three resorts and extend their diving experiences to exotic underwater playgrounds at two additional resorts. Round-trip transportation is included between resorts.
Sandals resorts on Saint Lucia include:
- Sandals Halcyon Beach
- Sandals Regency La Toc Golf Resort & Spa
- Sandals Grande St. Lucian Spa & Beach Resort
For a once in a lifetime honeymoon experience, why not climb the famous twin peaks of the Pitons. Towering nearly 3,000 feet above sea level, the majestic peak of Gros Piton, along with its twin peak Petit Piton, dominates the western coast of St Lucia. Snaking up the misty, jungle-covered, boulder-strewn mountainside for the huge views from the top, is an experience well worth the hike. Afterwards, head to a rest stop for a sumptuous lunch of local delicacies and a refreshing swim in the Caribbean Sea.
Just delicious! Enjoy exploring these stunning Caribbean island for your honeymoon choices. Paradise on earth.
