Your more than perfect wedding day deserves an amazing honeymoon to match. Not someone else’s at a crowded all-inclusive resort, but the perfect secluded honeymoon destination.
So let’s think small, very small…in fact, only 5 square miles in size to the beautiful Caribbean island of Canouan (pronounced ca-noo-ahn). As part of St Vincent & the Grenadines, Canouan is known for its untouched natural beauty, world-class water sports, average year round temperature of 81°F, and above all, privacy.
Easily accessible from Barbados, Grenada, Martinique, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and San Juan, Puerto Rico, Canouan currently offers only two exclusive resorts to choose from that are perfect for your private romantic honeymoon.
As part of the Leading Hotels of the World group, Canouan Resort offers amazing Caribbean Sea views from their spacious 825 square foot Junior Suites and 1,300 square foot Villa Suites that are available will their own private pool. Canouan Resort offers picturesque white sand beaches, a beautiful church dating back to the 17th century, signature Canouan Resort Spa, along with five restaurants and lounges.
Daily breakfast and private airport transfers are included with Canouan Resort nightly rates starting at $700; for an additional $175 per stay, a honeymoon package is available that includes champagne, a couples massage, romantic candlelit dinner and turndown service. Stay five nights or more and take advantage of the Jet Package that comes with complimentary round trip flights from Barbados.
As a less expensive honeymoon option, Tamarind Beach Hotel & Yacht Club offers a selection of beachfront guest rooms and suites all featuring tropical ocean views. The resort features two restaurants, two lounges, and a beachfront massage room. Tamarind Beach Hotel & Yacht Club offers two inclusive meal plan options – their B&B plan than includes breakfast only and their Full American Plan (F.A.P.) that consists of three meals daily.
Honeymooners can enjoy both a complimentary bottle of wine upon check-in and upgrade to a suite when staying at the Tamarind Beach Hotel & Yacht Club. Stay seven nights on their F.A.P. plan and enjoy free return flights from Barbados with their Flight Promotion. Nightly rates at Tamarind Beach Hotel & Yacht Club start at $290 (B&B rate) or $380 (F.A.P.).
Both of these Canouan Island resorts offer 18-hole championship golfing at the Grenadines Estate Golf Club designed by famed golfing architect Jim Fazio. Each resort also offers non-motorized watersports including amazing snorkeling and scuba diving at the island’s coral reef found just offshore.
