Real Honeymoon: St.Barths and Anguilla

Real Honeymoon |

real_honeymoon

Today we’re sharing a real honeymoon from Kevin & Courtney. They were initially thinking of going to Europe for their honeymoon, but once I suggested St.Barths and Anguilla for them they were sold! Courtney was kind enough to answer a few questions below about their favorite parts of their honeymoon at Hotel Le Toiny in St.Barths and the Viceroy Anguilla.

Where did you go?
St. Barths (Hotel Le Toiny) & Anguilla (Viceroy Anguilla Resort)

Why did you decide on these destinations?
We wanted to go somewhere totally new. We considered Europe but after filling out the questionnaire and hearing about St. Barts and Anguilla we were sold!

What did you like about the destinations you traveled to?
St. Barths was our favorite place we have ever been to. It’s such a remote island and simply beautiful. We loved everything about it the culture, the FOOD, the remote beaches, the people and all the sights to see. Anguilla was completely different, such a beautiful island with the carribean vibe. The beaches were the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen with white sand and the bluest water. They also had so many great food places outside of the resort it was so awesome going to places like Blanchards Beach Shack, eating with your toes in the sand and admiring the beautiful water.

Did you receive any special honeymoon amenities or upgrades?
In St. Barths we were upgraded to a full villa. It was so beautiful we could live there forever! We also were greeted with champagne and delicious desserts. In Anguilla we were greeted with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries which was great after a day of traveling! We also had a spa credit and used it towards a couple massage which was simply amazing.

If you had to pick just one, what would be your favorite honeymoon memory?
St. Barths was definitely getting to our villa and seeing our pool and view and feeling like rockstars. Also when we found Gouvernor Beach we absolutely loved it there and felt like we were in a dream. In Anguilla was definitely the day we chartered a private catamaran through Le Chocolat.It was the best day cruising around the crystal clear water and stopping at Sandy Island for lunch.

Is there anything you would tell other couples planning their honeymoon?
Definitely be opened minded to somewhere totally new. It’s your honeymoon so dream big and go for it! If you pick St. Barths definitely stay at Le Toiny and rent a car but be careful driving! It takes a while to get used to the rugged terrain. In Anguilla go to as many restaurants as you can so much good food. In Viceroy defintely go to Coba and get the Mahi Mahi it was the best ever!

What 3 words would you use to describe your honeymoon?
Breathtaking, Secluded and Amazing Food!
