While I love planning honeymoons for couples in newlywed bliss, I have a special soft spot for this anniversary trip I planned for Garret and Katie. ¬†They were never able to take a true honeymoon after their big day so needless to say, seven years later, they were ready! ¬†With such high expectations for this trip, I knew I wanted to make it ten days that they would never forget!
Who better to tell you how much they enjoyed their trip to The Viceroy Anguilla¬†and share some photos than Katie herself…
First off, I think you can see our excitement. ¬†Thanks,¬†Katie, for making this ‚Äúhoneymoon‚ÄĚ a reality. ¬†We‚Äôre so incredibly¬†thankful.
Offering five restaurants, two beaches, and three pools, the Viceroy made¬†it difficult to leave the resort. ¬†What more could we ask for? ¬†We were,¬†however, walking distance to several restaurants along Meads Bay which¬†included Blanchard‚Äôs Beach Shack (they have a delicious Mahi Mahi BLT), The¬†Straw Hat, and Jacala. ¬†Coba was, by far, our best meal. ¬†Exceptional¬†service (they even offered complimentary champagne in celebration of our¬†‚Äúhoneymoon‚ÄĚ), mouth-watering red snapper and ahi, and a decadent chocolate¬†dessert. ¬†Yummy!
Calming and luxurious, our hotel room (aka mini¬†mansion) with its enormous bed and deep-soaking tub was an oasis. After a¬†day lounging at Meads Bay or the infinity pool, one of my favorite aspects¬†of our hotel was when we walked into our room we were greeted by the smell¬†of fresh, citrusy peppermint. ¬†It was so refreshing. ¬†I wish I could¬†encapsulate that smell and live with it permanently. ¬†It‚Äôs the small¬†things!
We ventured out to see one of the first resorts on the island, Cap Juluca,¬†because we knew it had primo choice when selecting its location over 25¬†years ago. ¬†Although the resort can‚Äôt compare to the Viceroy, it does¬†offer one of the most breathtaking views of crystal clear blue water and¬†white sand. ¬†We felt like we were on another planet; there were only¬†three other people there! ¬†It was fun to take a jaunt over for part of¬†day!
Breakfast at Aleta‚Äôs was the¬†way to start the morning and how could anyone go wrong with this view!
I’m so happy they had a great time at one of my favorite spots in the Caribbean. ¬†If you are interested in booking your own trip here, click here to let me know!
