Choosing the Perfect Room for You
After careful consideration you’ve selected the perfect resort for your destination wedding, honeymoon or romantic getaway. But you’re not quite finished yet. Another important decision is what type of room will be your home on your vacation. You will spend many hours in your room. It will be a place to relax and a place for alone time for the two of you. Couples are placing an increasing emphasis on this important decision and giving it the attention it deserves.
Of course the resort is definitely the most important consideration but the room amenities are important as well. Here are a few of the many options today’s fabulous resorts offer.
OCEAN VIEW – This is the most popular of any of the room options. You are going to the tropics and the turquoise ocean is what you want to see from your balcony. There are some resorts where every single room features an ocean view.
SUITES – Suites are more than just a simple room. A suite has a living room as well as a bedroom and a comfortable sitting area to enjoy a cocktail, in-room dining and just each other’s company. Also, there are two televisions with a door that closes between them. He can watch sporting events as she watches something else. Suites have been getting larger and couples are requesting them more and more often..
FANTASTIC BATHROOM – Resorts are learning more and more about what is important for couples on a romantic retreat. Couples want large showers separated from the tub. They want tubs large enough for a romantic bubble bath for two. They want double vanity sinks. After all women need more space and prefer not to have their mans whiskers in the sink.
PRIVATE POOL – What could be nicer than having your very own private pool to enjoy? Many are called private pool sanctuaries since they have lounge chairs and a table with chairs. It is an area to enjoy privately with that special someone.
OUTDOOR SHOWERS – There is nothing better than taking an open air shower that is completely private. You look up and all you see is blue sky or the stars at night. It is a free and easy feeling.
OUTDOOR JACCUZIS – What a wonderful place to relax after a long day touring the island, doing watersports or enjoying the beach. Many resorts have private ones on your deck or patio. A great place to unwind with your favorite tropical drink.
OUTDOOR SOAKING TUBS – These are the latest feature of many of the resorts. They are located on your deck or patio. There are curtains added for privacy and these tubs are very large. They accommodate tall people and are big enough for two. They have a very quick feature to fill the tubs within minutes. Perhaps your butler will surprise you with bubbles and flowers in the tub.
SWIM UP ROOMS – Many couples are asking for rooms where you can step off your balcony into a large pool. What a lovely way to enjoy a relaxing and romantic day. Getting hard to leave your room!
OVER THE WATER BUTLER BUNGALOWS – This is the accommodation that everyone wants! It used to be that you had to fly to the South Pacific to have an over the water bungalow. Now you can fly 3 or 4 hours and have your own bungalow in the Caribbean. Not only is it the most gorgeous bungalow anywhere, the resort is also all inclusive with a butler to service your every need. You better book early because they sell out way in advance. Incidentally, I recently had a couple return from Bora Bora and they told me from now on they are sticking to the Caribbean because the flight was too long.
AMENITIES AND PRODUCTS – Resorts are offering more and more extras in the room such as amazing shower gels, bubble baths, soaps, shampoos, conditioners, sunscreen, shaving cream, disposable razors, toothpaste, tooth brushes and combs. You have a bar in your room with a refrigerator stocked with soft drinks, beer and mixers. Chocolates and snacks are also available.
Whatever it is that you are looking for it is getting easier to find. Many of these lovely rooms have specials throughout the year. Please contact us to find out what is available for your special trip.
