All-inclusive Honeymoons in the Caribbean

 By Kate Lee

The Caribbean is a great honeymoon destination. White sand beaches, balmy weather, buckets of culture and top-notch luxury accommodation mean it is a favourite choice for newlyweds. All-inclusive honeymoon packages are a popular option in the Caribbean because they tend to be great value for money. Couples can kick back and enjoy unlimited luxury without worrying about hidden costs. Here is our round up of the best all-inclusive honeymoon resorts in the Caribbean and what they include.

Boutique hideaways

Essential Detail has a range of beautiful boutique all-inclusive hotels in the Caribbean. On St Lucia, the East Winds Inn is a wonderful low-key and very classy little hideaway.

For the Robinson Crusoe experience, honeymoon on private Young Island in The Grenadines. Laze in one of the sheltered hammocks on the palm-studded beach or explore the 13 acres of island nature reserve. Sandy Haven resort in Jamaica offers spacious, stylish beachfront rooms plus a pool, spa, gym and two restaurants.

Also in Jamaica is small, friendly Jamaica Inn. This hotel oozes 1950s glamour. Classy and timeless, all rooms overlook the private beach in Ocho Rios. Upgrade your room to a cottage with private terrace and infinity pool. Welcome touches include four poster beds, cliffside spa and alfresco dining.

All-inclusive Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is a great choice for honeymooners. The best beaches can be found in Punta Cana on its eastern tip. Laze in the tropical gardens at the lively Dreams Punta Cana.

If you prefer detox to disco, the Zoetry Wellness and Spa offers dreamy aromatherapy pillows, luxury bath amenities, organic food, horse riding and a spa treatment every day. All hotels offer 24 hour room service, premium branded drinks and à la carte dining at a range of restaurants. Bars and evening entertainment complete the package. Great value for money.

Anse Chastanet, St Lucia

For a rustic and eco-friendly vibe, head to Anse Chastanet in St Lucia. Perched on a hillside, this 600-acre estate has heavenly beaches, marine reserve waters and Caribbean jungle to enjoy. Rooms have views of the Piton mountains. Trade up for private pool and no fourth wall for one-of-a-kind accommodation. Activities include sailing, windsurfing, jungle biking, scuba diving and tennis. Airport transfers, drinks (not champagne and bottled wine), organic home-grown food, a tour of the island and a one-hour massage are included.

Necker Island, British Virgin Islands

Go for a once in a lifetime trip on Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island,, which is open for reservations during an annual ‘celebration week’. Necker Island is super private and romantic but is ideal for adventure seekers. Go kite surfing, ride a mini catamaran, try paddleboarding and even zoom down a zip line from the Great House to the beach. Villas are Balinese in style and some have private pools. Opt for a room at the Great House for panoramic views and a two-person Jacuzzi. Expect top quality cuisine and facilities.

Tall ship cruises

A honeymoon on a tall cruise ship is the ultimate romantic adventure. These beautiful sailing ships have buckets of character but also score high on luxury. Ships are small so have the advantage of being able to sail into ports that larger ships cannot. All meals are included but expect to pay extra for drinks, tips and trips off the boat.
