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 “honeymoon” a reality. We’re 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’s 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 “honeymoon”), 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’s 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’t 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’s 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!
