Honeymoons in the Caribbean

Our favourite experiences and hotels for a luxury honeymoon in the Caribbean

Thick verdant jungles that fringe powder-soft white sand beaches and fall away into endless azure seas; The Caribbean islands could quite easily fill the treasure chests of pirates past. But the real beauty of this idyllic cluster extends far beyond the islands themselves to the vibrant colours of Caribbean culture. The reds, the yellows, the greens – Caribbean life is a swirl of colour.

From the bustling Carnival scenes of Trinidad to the serendipitous isolation of Mustique, this is a place where you can do anything or nothing at all. Dance the night away on the glamourous beaches of Barbados, step back in time into the faded glory of Cuba, move with the rhythm of the steel drums in Jamaica or get back to nature in Dominica. No matter whether it’s rum and sun, culture and cuisine or reefs and peaks that you’re looking for, a honeymoon in the Caribbean has it all.

Horse riding in the Caribbean

Luxury honeymoon experiences in the Caribbean

Explore the Caribbean beaches and forest by horseback

One of the best ways to explore Mustique is undoubtedly on horseback. Whilst riding over the hills will offer stunning views over the ocean, it’s down on the secluded beaches that you’ll get a real sense of the magic of this place. Just picture it, riding down the beach as the sun dips down behind the horizon, coming to a halt at a candlelit table set up on the shoreline for just the two of you. It’s pure enchantment.

Discover the Grenadine’s 32 islands via private yacht

When in the Grenadines, it would be rude not to explore the all 32 islands. Cruising over the crystal clear waters on a private yacht, stopping off wherever takes your fancy – it’s the definition of island life. Our favourite little corner though? The Tobago Cays. This stunning marine conservation park is the perfect spot for a dip, with hundreds of hawksbill turtles to keep you company on the beautiful reef. Hey, if Johnny Depp didn’t mind being marooned here – we don’t either.

Spend the day surrounded by chocolate at Jade Mountain

Some things are just synonymous with romance. Sunsets, flowers, chocolates. St. Lucia has them all – but we know it was the chocolate that got your attention. Home to over 2,000 cocoa trees and their very own chocolate laboratory, Jade Mountain knows how to satisfy a sweet tooth. Join the team on a bean to bar experience as you scour the estate for the best beans, before culminating with a well-earned sensory tasting.

Luxury hotels in the Caribbean

Jade Mountain, St. Lucia

Quite simply the most romantic hotel in the Caribbean, each of the suites at Jade Mountain are open air with gorgeous infinity plunge pools, boasting insta-perfect views of St Lucia’s Pitons. Privacy is the name of the game up here, with nobody else in sight other than a few passing boats in the distance.

What makes Jade Mountain really stand out though? Its stunningly unique location. Unlike most other Caribbean hotels, this mountainside oasis has taken a step back from the beach. But don’t let that put you off. The views are absolutely breathtaking from up here – and after a glass of bubbly in your private pool, you can make your way down to the beach for that sunset stroll .

Staying at Jade Mountain, St Lucia
Cotton House, Mustique

The Cotton House, Mustique

If you’re looking for the next step up in privacy and exclusivity, look no further than Mustique. A private island, home to just one hotel, this is as exclusive as it gets. At The Cotton House you’ll enjoy unrivalled access to nine different beaches, each seemingly more beautiful than the last.

Better still, time your moment right and you could have the beach all to yourselves. Just ask the Cotton House to rustle up a gourmet picnic and you’re in some real romance among the white sand.

Stay at Petit St Vincent

Petit St Vincent

Don’t tell the other 7,000, but Petit St Vincent may just be our favourite island. A tiny tropical sanctuary with just 22 villas, you’ll be castaway in total luxury. So secluded is a stay here that some of the villas even feature their own secret beaches – perfect for escapism.

Should you want anything more, a pina colada perhaps? Simply pop a note in your beachside post box, raise a flag and consider it taken care of. We could get used to this.
