There's no better local Nashville honeymoon planner than 2 Travel Anywhere! Carlie has all the scoop on new honeymoon resorts opening, the hottest new destinations and basically anything else you need to know about planning your honeymoon. So we've asked Carlie to keep us in the loop and tell us more about her top 3 picks for fall honeymoon destinations for Nashville couples. Take it away, Carlie!
1. St. Lucia
Carlie: St Lucia offers a private pool bungalow with butler service at the Sandals Grande. It is one of the only resorts on the island that has a white sand beach. Sandals Grande is all inclusive, so all food, drinks and alcohol is included. Your private pool bungalo has an outdoor shower and a wall around your pool to use as you wish. Sandals Grande offers butler service – a staff member will greet you at check in with a cell phone to call your butler for anything you wish. A major perk is that St. Lucia has 3 Sandals resorts located on different ares of the island! Plus, you get FREE shuttle transportation between all three resorts where you can dine, eat and play at all three for free all day! The 3 resorts collectively offer 27 restaurants and 21 bars all included with no tipping allowed.
If Hawaii is one of your top honeymoon options, you might actually want to consider St. Lucia. Sandals Grande in St. Lucia is an all inclusive and all adult resort with a much shorter flight from Nashville. St. Lucia has waterfalls, zip-lining, black sand beaches and more which make it very similar to Hawaii.
The island offers a variety of history and is known for the highest peak on the island called the Pitons. You see the whole island on a clear day at the top of the Piton . Like to hike? Enjoy a day of hiking to the top of the Piton. St. Lucia also has a volcano with hot springs and mud baths.
St Lucia year round is ideal. This tropical rainforest offers excellent weather year round. It's located below the hurricane belt, so it typically never had any issues with hurricanes from August through November.
Carlile: The newest Sandals Destination in the Caribbean is in Barbados! It's an exotic gem that features white sand beaches. Sandals Barbados is located in the Saint Lawrence Gap on the South Coast of the island. One of the things I noticed when I traveled to this island was that it was totally different than the other Caribbean islands! You can go snorkeling with the turtles as the island has a healthy population of hawksbill and leatherback turtles. Barbados is also home to the green monkey! Sometimes the monkeys can be seen around the hotel grounds, however, they like to keep their distance from people.
From the underground caves and scenic vistas to the enchantment of swimming with the giant sea turtles, Barbados is full of fascinating pursuits! Duty-free shopping, tasty culinary delights at world-renowned restaurants, and an age-old rum distillery, all add to the charm of this lively island. If you like to snorkel, I highly recommend touring the with Island Routes to see the hawksbill turtles.
Like St Lucia this island is located outside of the hurricane belt, so year round is ideal. Barbados may get a little more rain, but the weather year round is excellent.
3. Turks & Caicos
Carlile: Turks & Caicos is located on 12 miles of white sand and turquoise ocean. The only all inclusive resort on the island is Beaches Turks and Caicos. The island offers all adult bars and resturants. Beaches Turks has 4 resorts combined into 1 big resort where you can enjoy all of the locations for free.
The island's #1 attraction is the long stretch of white sand beaches along with the coral reefs. If you like to snorkel or scuba dive, Beaches Turks offers both activities for free everyday! Or if you prefer a glass bottom boat tour, they also offer this everyday. Beaches Turks gives guests unlimited use of the waterpark and unlimited dining for all 21 restaurants.
If you can go to Beaches Turks and Caicos between September and November, they are less busy which is very nice for dining at the resturants! And you won't have to wait in line at the water park during their slower season.
