Excerpts from Chatham Daily News.
If you've cruised the Caribbean on Carnival Cruise Lines, you've experienced the destination's reputation for being somewhat family-focused for a tropical getaway. It's comparitively cheap and accessible for Americans, which often means all-inclusives involving more fruit punch packets than rum punch cocktails.
Fortunately, there are places perfect for couples among the many islands. Here are 3 places to consider when planning your trip for two:
Imagine a paradise island with perfect sunsets, cool tropical breezes, white powder beaches and the bluest water your eyes have ever seen. That is what you'll find at Cap Juluca in Anguilla. Jetsetters from around the world are attracted to the enclave for its breathtakingly beautiful beach and rooms with a view.
The private pool villa suites -- brilliant white villas surrounded by lush foliage -- are the ultimate glam retreat. There's even a villa manager to meet your every whim.
In Antigua, Hermitage Bay is nirvana on earth. Nestled in a quiet cove surrounded by jungle on the island's west coast, there is nothing typical about this small all-inclusive luxury hotel. The decor is uber stylish -- mocha-coloured hardwood floors, dreamy white linens and the piece deresistance: A secluded plunge pool surrounded by lounge chairs with fluffy white cushions. The hillside cottage suites No. 37 to No. 39 boast the ultimate views.
On St. Lucia, Jade Mountain might look familiar. This chic place has been featured on TV's The Bachelor. The 25-room boutique property is an adults-only all-inclusive, which has secluded suites accessible via a suspended sky bridge. Butlers there are called "Major Domo" and the suites are referred to as "sanctuaries." There's Moon, Sun, and the ever popular two Galaxy sanctuaries. All the suites have an unbroken view of St. Lucia's famous Gros and Petit Pitons.
Air Canada Vacations has packages for these luxe Caribbean properties, any of which make for fabulous fashionable couple getaways.
