An island honeymoon is an unforgettable vacation! There is nothing like the way you feel when you go to the Islands. The weather is always perfect and everything just feels right. Time slows down and it is wonderful just to be out in the weather. The sun is shining most of the time and there is the sound of the ocean and the beautiful fragrant smell of tropical flowers. The colors are vibrant with the turquoise ocean, colorful flowers, and pastel buildings. You just slow down and go with the flow.
It is a place one does not have the luxury of going to often and it makes it even more special. You work hard all year and you are really busy planning your wedding. This time will be a special time for just the two of you. I never get tired of going to the Islands no matter how many times a year I go. The feel is incredible.
It is also about the tropical drinks that are served to you in the afternoon. There is nothing like sitting on a beach chair looking at and hearing the ocean and being served the special drink of your choice. If you are lucky enough to have a butler at Sandals he or she can anticipate your needs. I sometimes have my iPad and keep in touch with office and clients. It is wonderful booking a honeymoon while I am sitting on my beach chair. Somehow it enhances my description of how wonderful your special trip will be.
Time goes a bit slower in the islands. People move slower and the longer you are there the more you will slow down as well. I find that it takes very busy people a couple of days to unwind. Picture yourself waking up when you feel like it and going to have a wonderful breakfast that includes the local fruits and coffee. Perhaps you will go for a run on the beach or spend an hour in the gym. Perhaps you will do a Zumba, yoga, spin or aerobics class. Perhaps you will leave that behind as well. You will then park yourself on a beach or pool chair with that book you have wanted to read. Your butler is there with your wonderful Bahama Mama, Pina Colada, Yellow Bird or, my favorite, Blue Hawaiian. Your refill will be ready when you are. You may go for a swim in the crystal clear ocean or in the beautiful pool. Perhaps you will go windsurfing or on a paddle boat. You may go for a dive or a snorkel or take a nap. Think of pampering yourself in the afternoon with a beautiful couples massage. You may go to your room after a wonderful day and find a bubble bath in your tub with candles and roses compliments of your butler.
Your evening will consist of a wonderful dinner with so many choices it is hard to decide. You may relax by the fire pits and enjoy a romantic sunset watching the sun fall into the beautiful ocean. Perhaps there will be a sax player blowing romantic tunes. You will get re-energized and perhaps spend a few hours in the disco. You retire for the night and dream about what you will do the next day.
You can do as little as you like or as much as you like. There is nothing quite like the feel of the Islands.
