Virgin Islands Top Resort Honeymoons Is Peter Island
Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010
The Virgin Islands Top Resort for Honeymoons has to be Peter Island.
Any visitor here would describe Peter Island as one of the very top Caribbean beautiful small island vacations, with just cause too!!
To be on your honeymoon on Peter Island, is just a dream come true, because as well as being a top Caribbean resort, it is probably the most romantic hotel in the Caribbean.
Honeymoons should always be romantic, and whilst it has to be said that what Peter Island is not, is that it could never be described as one of the most romantic affordable honeymoon ideas, because it is definitely not cheap, however it is one of the two most romantic vacations spots for me.
The first being when my husband proposed to me!! ??????
Enough of that, now what about Peter Island as the most romantic hotel in the Caribbean?
This was our first trip to the Caribbean, although we are very familiar with top class resorts, beautiful white sand beaches, and delicious food, but we were not prepared for some of the most beautiful beaches on Peter Island. It really is a top resort in every sense of the word. The sea is so clean and clear, and if you enjoy snorkelling, which we do, then the beaches we tried snorkelling from were excellent. There were plenty of opportunities to indulge on the water as well with hobie cats, sunfish, windsurfing, sailing, sea kayaking.
The best thing about the beaches apart from the sand and the sea was the fact that there were never many people there. We mostly went to Deadman?s Beach which runs from close to our room, past the beach restaurant
The island itself is a tropical paradise, palm trees, lush green vegetation, and VERY private. No streets, no taxis, no shops, no cruise ships, airports, time share salesmen, not even houses. This is a privately owned island, and it will stay that way ? pristine, unspoiled paradise, and very very private.
The accommodation is probably understated, but we were lucky indeed to get an upgrade to a beachfront junior suite.
It was quite amazing, beautifully furnished, a huge bathroom with a double Jacuzzi, and shower. The view from this 1st floor suite was unforgettable, and incredibly you could walk out straight onto the beach without using the stairs or the front door.
I did like all the extras in the suite, the robes, flip flops etc, but the best thing to me was the fact that the radio in the room took CD?s and I always take some away with me, so we could listen to our favourites when we were dressing or just relaxing.
Finally the fridge in the suite was well stocked, and the prices remarkably cheap.
I come now to the food, and with it the service, and this is really where Peter Island has rightly established itself as the Virgin Islands top honeymoon resort, because if ever a girl wants to be pampered it is on her honeymoon!!
Well the food at Peter Island is extremely good, and loving my food as I do, this was a foodie paradise. Breakfast, lunches down on the beach, dinners were all delicious, and I can?t remember a bad meal.
The service was mostly superb, the staff went the extra mile many times for us, and were very good at remembering our names, and supplying us with things like snacks when we wanted them even if we had only casually mentioned the subject.
The total highlight for me was the spa. My husband and I both had massages for the first time, and we loved the pool at the spa with the best views.
Peter Island certainly lived up to its reputation as top Caribbean small island vacation, and will always be on my list of most romantic getaways, but as it is not cheap, whilst most romantic it was not my most affordable honeymoon idea ? but who cares ? I loved it!!
