Take some inspiration from our 7 favourite couples retreats and book yourself a little quality time with that special someone in your life…
Harry – St Barts
Nothing whispers romance more than the simply sublime views from the terrace of Villa Harry. Nestled into one of the many hillsides in St Barts’ mountainous landscape, this exquisitely designed villa boasts picture perfect panoramas of the valley of Grand Saline and the Caribbean Sea. Just a few minutes from the white sand and clear water of Saline beach, there couldn’t be a more idyllic spot to enjoy your couples retreat (although, if you fancy bringing friends or family there is a 2nd beautifully equipped bedroom for guests’ convenience).
Prices start from US$536* per night.
Leamington Cottage – Barbados
There are few villas on this super popular island that rival the charm and privacy this enchanting beachfront cottage can offer. Hidden within the exclusive Leamington Estate but with a private entrance and separate driveway, this one bedroom cottage comes equipped with everything you could possibly need for an idyllic respite from normal life. Situated on the golden West Coast, the calming waters are footsteps from your private plunge pool and the famous Bajan sunsets are complimentary.
Prices start from US$450* per night.
Jewel Box Beach Villa – Virgin Gorda
We definitely share the universally held view that the British Virgin Islands are one of the most romantic places on earth, and Virgin Gorda is no exception. For that Robinson Crusoe, back-to-nature feel, the Oil Nut Bay resort certainly ticks every box. In particular, their Jewel Box Beach Villa is the ultimate getaway abode. With two suites that both offer breathtaking views and with more amenities than you could shake a tropical stick at, this beautifully landscaped gem is one for those looking for that once-in-a-lifetime luxury.
Prices start from US$3,854* per night.
Senderlea – Barbados
The inviting nature of the Caribbean ‘big blue’ is cause enough in itself for many a couple to shed their inhibitions and kick back, but with the intimate beachfront access that Senderlea provides, you are left with no other option but to have some well-deserved fun. Spend your evenings absorbed in the sounds of the tropics, the scents of the freshly cooked faire and the sparkling sights of shoals of flying fish. Cheers!
Prices start from US$590* per night.
La Bagatelle – St Lucia
For that rejuvenating jungle retreat, look no further than the equatorial excitements of St Lucia. Steeped in history, renowned for its charming culture and packed with more adventures than you could imagine, this beautiful island is one for adrenaline junkies and couples looking to relive their youth. If you appreciate natural beauty and even more gorgeous surroundings, La Bagatelle in Soufriere is the perfect hideaway. The famed Anse Chastanet beach with its superb diving facilities and protected marine park is minutes away. The Sulphur Springs, Botanical Gardens and Mineral Baths, rain forest and unspoiled coastline are all also within a short commute and make for incredible memories.
Prices start from US$375* per night.
Beach House – St Barts
If sinking your toes into powder soft sands floats your Caribbean boat, then the aptly named ‘Beach House’ couldn’t be a more perfect fit for your romantic requirements. With its clean, simple style and natural materials it blends seamlessly into the landscape and ensures the only distraction is the mesmerising beach. This dreamlike idyll is set back on the infamous Flamands Beach and boasts a hammock perfect for wiling the afternoons away in style.
Prices start from US$857* per night.
Beach Cottage Deluxe – Grenada
For the past 12 years, Laluna has set the benchmark for luxury in Grenada. This exquisite resort has a strong Italian feel, and as we all know the Italians have long been associated with their fascination of all things ‘amare’. The small but perfectly formed hillside suites are but steps away from the ‘back to nature’ beaches and the accompanying spa, restaurant and yoga studio do nothing but fan the flames of affection.
Prices start from US$695* per night.
