Impossibly beautiful and hopelessly romantic, St. Lucia showcases some of the most spectacular landscapes in the Caribbean. This verdant isle glitters like an emerald in the midst of the sparkling sea, and serves up not only superb beaches fringed by coral reefs, but an interior of lush rainforest, cascading water, and sweet-smelling fruit plantations. Although St. Lucia may seem like an island that caters for couples seeking solitude, there is so much more than meets the eye! St. Lucia holidays deliver an almost perfect mix of first-rate beach action and a healthy blend of adventure making it the perfect honeymoon destination.
Our St. Lucia Top Pick: Jade Mountain
This exclusive island hideaway offers the perfect setting for romance and relaxation. Set amongst 600 lush tropical acres, Jade Mountain St. Lucia is one of the Caribbean’s most mesmerizing resort experiences.

Dynamically blending modern service, with the spectacular beauty of island living, honeymooners will fall in love with this secluded haven.
St. Kitts & Nevis
St. Kitts and Nevis may be smaller than their neighbouring islands but what they lack in size, they certainly make up for in unparalleled natural beauty! If you’re seeking a quieter honeymoon without the crowds, then St. Kitts may just be the answer. Blessed with palm fringed beaches, volcanic peaks, lush rainforest, an abundance of wildlife and plenty of watersports; this is the perfect island for a secluded honeymoon. St. Kitts’ sister island, Nevis, just two miles away across the sparkling ‘Narrows’ is even quieter - and every bit as beautiful so why not combine the two?

A tranquil and intimate alternative to the Caribbean’s larger islands, a place where turquoise water gently laps the shore with barely a soul around.

As laid back as a reggae rhythm in some ways and as spicy as jerk chicken in others, honeymoons in Jamaica promise something for everyone. Miles upon miles of pristine coastline, white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and the ultimate laid-back vibe �� Jamaica is perfect for newlyweds seeking vibrant culture, delicious local flavours and picture-perfect backdrops.

Jamaica is the natural choice for couples wanting to experience island life to the fullest!
Our Jamaica Top Pick: Secrets St. James Montego Bay
Tucked away on a ½ mile stretch of paradise, where the turquoise waters of the Caribbean lap against sugar-white sand is where you will find Secrets St. James Montego Bay – an award winning romantic resort which exudes Jamaican charm. Secrets St. James Montego Bay presents guests with a quiet, relaxing, oceanfront destination and the ultimate in Unlimited–Luxury® with 24-hour room service, cabanas on the beach, eight gourmet restaurants, nine bars and lounges, a café, Secrets Spa by Pevonia, and championship-calibre golf nearby. A little piece of heaven on a secluded peninsula providing ideal settings for newlywed couples.
Rivera Maya Mexico
The clue’s in the name with Riviera Maya honeymoons. If ‘Riviera’ conjures up images of sandy beaches, sparkling blue sea and swaying palm trees, then you’re on the right track. Next, the ‘Maya’ bit, which comes from the awe-inspiring ruins that pepper this region - the last vestiges of the ancient Maya Empire. Stretching from boisterous Cancun in the north to serene Tulum in the south, the Riviera Maya is home to a succession of fabulous beaches and activities that offer something for everyone - from lively Playa Del Carmen to the kicked back Xpu-Ha beach! We recommend having a swim in one of Rivera Maya’s famous cenotes and taking a wander around age-old Maya ruin sites. The combination of Mayan culture, striking natural beauty and lively nightlife make for a truly enchanting honeymoon destination.
Riviera Maya Top Pick: Secrets Akumal Riviera Maya
This brand new adults-only resort is ideally located in the heart of the Riviera Maya along the famed white-sand beaches and calm, clear waters of Akumal. Meaning “Place of Turtles” in Mayan, Akumal offers superb snorkelling opportunities off of its pristine coastline. Secrets Akumal presents a truly magical Unlimited-Luxury® experience with 24-hour room service, daily refreshed mini-bar, limitless gourmet wining and dining, nightly entertainment and more. Spend a night out at nearby sister properties or wind down with a specialty treatment at the exquisite Secrets Spa - perfect for newlyweds who want to experience luxury with the added bonus of thriving nightlife and entertainment options.
We want your honeymoon to be the one you’ve always dreamed of, so of course, you can tailor-make any element to create a bespoke journey for you and your partner. Can’t decide between islands? Why not combine a few? Island hopping is a great way to experience all the different flavours of the Caribbean. Or why not combine the Caribbean and Mexico for 2 completely different vibes? The possibilities are endless…
