Romantic Getaways & Honeymoons Ideas

Travel the World of Love and Romance

Romantic Getaways & Honeymoons Ideas
   Where in the world is the romance? It's where you find it. In Paris and London, Venice and New York City, romance is alive and just waiting to be discovered. Often subtle, unexpected and sweet, romance is less about the cash than the imagination.

   Whether on white-sand beaches or dirt roads, soft snow or the deep, blue sea, most couples need some time to rest, renew, rejuvenate and remember what brought them together in the beginning.

   Romantic Adventures are more than simple loving gestures or regular dates, although that's what provides the necessary foundation. A romantic adventure is an extraordinary demonstration of love and commitment, an experience that lets your beloved know that he or she is loved and adored by you. It's an outrageously fun, intimate connection, and the memory of it never fails to bring a smile. It's all the heightened emotions that make romance an adventure.

Cheeca Lodge and Spa
  "...From the moment we arrived at the Cheeca Lodge, we had nothing but fantastic service and an amazing experience. All of our guests felt the same way. ... I would definitely reccommend this resort as a place to take a romantic trip, host an event, or take a family vacation - there's so much to do! ..."

   We're on a mission to help people in love stay in love, and have lots of fun while doing it. You and your beloved together explore what makes you feel most loved , what interests you share, what new activities you might be willing to try, how much privacy you want, and what level of surprise is comfortable to each of you.

   So if you and your honey are ready to return to romance, the world is definitely your oyster. Start at home. If the budget won't allow an ambitious expedition this year, have a romantic vacation without leaving town.

   Pretend you are visiting your home city as a tourist. Have you seen all the sights downtown? Try that new restaurant that just opened. Go back to the places where you hung out while you were dating.

   Go to a concert, a nightclub, roller skating, dancing or to a ball game. Go someplace you can't take the kids. In short, do what couples do -- not what families do.

   It's not necessary to wait until stress is overtaking you before you make that move. Plan now to play later .

   To really feel like a kid again, head for Disney World in Orlando. It might surprise you to know that the kid's fun palace is just the place for some grown-up R&R (that's rest and romance). Now that you've paid off the charge cards and the car note, it's your time to splurge on yourself. There's a less frenetic side to the Vacation Kingdom, like jazz and blues at the newly opened House of Blues, salmon steaks at breakfast, leisurely spa treatments, golf and tennis .

   A BET SoundStage Club for jazz, soul, hip-hop and R&B will open this spring in the Downtown Disney entertainment zone.

   For a rocking romantic time, you can't beat New Orleans during Carnival. This year the two-week-long Carnival season begins Friday, Feb. 13, and extends through Tuesday, Feb. 24. Can't make it for Carnival? Don't despair. The city always boasts hot seafood and cool jazz .

   For that special anniversary or vacation, head for the islands. Relax on sun drenched beaches, be refreshed in the clear aqua blue seas, duty free shop for the brands you love, dine on Caribbean delicacies , enjoy world class golf courses or revive your spirit in our spas....We welcome you to experience all the Caribbean has to offer through  All Vacation Ideas.

   Which of the Caribbean? Begin at the beginning and start with Anguilla, a popular destination for honeymooners and one of the best dive locations. Antigua and Aruba boast beautiful beaches and great weather year-round, averaging 82 degrees.

   In Barbados, a full range of watersports beckons -- snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, boating, wind surfing and parasailing. Golf is also an attraction .

   The Islands of the Bahamas offer fun-filled days of activities, and by night it's calypso, jazz and more. Known for its local seafood, including conch and grouper, the local Bahamian restaurants offer spicy, native food with a taste of the Caribbean. If you're considering getting married in the Bahamas, the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism offers a complimentary "Weddings in Paradise" service that puts engaged couples in touch with a ministry officer who will help make all the plans -- from location and flowers to music and food. Marriage requirements for the Bahamas are minimal -- couples can wed after only one day in the Bahamas. Happy couples arriving in the Bahamas on Monday may come into the register general's office on Tuesday, obtain a marriage license for $40 while waiting and be married on the same day.

   Jamaica has long lured lovers to its beaches, lush tropical forests, sporting activities and tempting cuisine. From all-inclusive resorts to luxurious villas to small and intimate inns, Jamaica has accommodations to suit every budget and romantic pleasure. Getting married in Jamaica is a simple process requiring a 24-hour stay before applying for a license. You will also need a birth certificate, divorce papers or death certificate (if applicable). Don't forget to sample the appropriately named "matrimony" fruit salad.

   Bermuda is also an ideal romantic retreat. Recently rated the No. 1 island among the "Top Ten Islands in the Caribbean, Bahamas and Bermuda " by Travel & Leisure magazine, romance is always on the menu. With its pink-sand beaches and more than 200 square miles of reef formations for scuba divers, the island offers a wide selection of honeymoon packages . Typical packages include airfare, accommodations, meal plans, champagne upon arrival, flowers in the room and special discounts at local attractions and restaurants .

   We invite you to learn about the unique experiences available in our 25 featured Caribbean destinations, as well as in the more than 100 luxurious resorts which are a part of All Vacation Ideas.  You'll love this region: the people, culture, and of course the sun and sand. Each island has something unique and special .  But many travelers were not informed.
   There are over 35 countries in the Caribbean , our goal is to educate potential travelers on the uniqueness of the islands and the upscale resorts options

You'll be able to quickly explore destinations and obtain information on lodging, dining, shopping, spas and sports. Armed with this information, make your reservations online, secure in the knowledge that places recommended on All Vacation Ideas are among the finest in the islands and the world .

   Imagine that you have a choice of 10 of the most unique romantic venues in the Caribbean and limiting one venue to each island. Which ones would they be and why?

   We particularly recommend you  Raffles Canouan in the Grenadines. The spa has over-water palapas that you get to by rowboat. During your massage you're looking down through a window in the floor at the fish swimming below. After your spa treatments, you and your mate lounge there in your own private palapa. The villas are secluded by dense foliage, so there's plenty of privacy. There's also a secluded beach on the other side of the island that's usually deserted.

*** Cayo Espanto , a small private island resort off Belize offers the ultimate in privacy and service. A handful of luxury beachfront casitas with alfresco showers and plunge pools are scattered around the island. You could stay here for a week and never see another soul except the maid and the fellow who brings your drinks and serves your meals anywhere you want them.
 *** Even though Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic is a big, bustling resort, it's also romantic. Strolling through the cobblestone streets of Altos de Chavon by lamplight and dining in outdoor cafes is wonderful. It's a cliff-top Medieval village recreated by hand of stone, wood and iron in the 1970s to house an artists' colony, shops and restaurants.
 *** We also recommend you the beach at Half Moon Resort in Jamaica , particularly watching the sunset from the gazebo out on the water. The villas along the beach are secluded by hedges and many have private pools that are perfect for a moonlight skinny dip.
*** Four Seasons Nevis has a great beach to stroll at sunset , and you can arrange to have a private dinner for two served at a table right on the beach. The spa is also exceptional. After your treatments you can swim in the secluded garden waterfall pool, or relax in a lounge chair listening to the waterfall.
 *** Laluna is a small 17 cottage resort on a secluded white sand bay in Grenada. It's owned and designed by fashion designer Bernardo Bertucci. Canopy beds, outdoor showers, excellent meals and a great private beach. Couples only . If someone doesn't find this place romantic, we'd advise that they check their pulse!
*** Island Outpost has small intimate properties in Jamaica and one in the Bahamas. Golden Eye, Strawberry Hill, The Caves, Jakes, and Pink Sands. IO is owned by Chris Blackwell of Island Records and who discovered Bob Marley. Each of the resorts is very romantic and developed for lovers . They are all very special properties.
*** Kamalamae Cay is a small property on a private island in Andros in the Islands of the Bahamas. This is the ultimate in seclusion. You'll only see the other guests there if you wish. There is plenty of space on the island to explore. The cottages themselves are made for romance with wonderful bathrooms, amenities, and beds. The staff in very attentive and catering to the couples needs .
 *** Ladera, St. Lucia has won just about every award for excellence in the Caribbean. It's also blessed with arguably the best view across from the Mountains in St. Lucia. The villas are high up in elevation so there is never a bug problem which allows for the villas to have an open wall with awesome views of the Pitons. Many of the villas have plunge pools as well. The meals are to die for as their restaurant Dansheen also wins numerous awards.
 *** Le Toiny is a ultra posh resort in St. Barth. It is comprised of private villas each with its own pool, large bathroom, living room, and separate bedroom. Every conceivable amenity is included from high end stereo to flat screen TV. Breakfast is served on the lanai next to pool in the villa. The restaurant is also one of the best on the island.

Romantic Getaways & Honeymoons Ideas    Not honeymooning? No problem. Several cruise lines are offering special packages for lovers. Princess Cruises hosts an annual renewal of vows ceremony on each of its nine ships during its Valentine's Day cruises. Couples who book by February 14 can benefit from the Love Boat Savers package. The cruise line also offers intimate tables for two romantic dining with your partner in one of the main dining rooms or in a private alcove in the 24-hour bistro.

   The Royal Caribbean Cruise Line offers a program it calls Royal Romance. which gives couples the option of five wedding packages and a vow-renewal program. Prices range fro $400 for renewing vows to as much as $1,200 for an island wedding in the Caribbean.

   Romance blossoms in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) as well, and the shopping is even better. The islands boast the highest duty-free allowance in the Caribbean ($1,200). The three islands of the USVI also offer beautiful beaches, crystal-clear water and year-round warm weather.

   On the island of St. Thomas, the Grand Beach Resort is offering a Sweet Indulgence package for couples, including five nights' accommodations, breakfast, a choice of two spa services per person, a $50-a-person voucher for the beauty salon , a half-day of snorkeling of a sunset sail. Prices are lower after April 3, which is the low season on the island.

   Islands aren't the only place to find romance. Songwriters, novelists and lovers sing the praises of April in Paris -- or Paris at any other tie of the year. For the ultimate romantic fantasy, how about a weekend in Paris? This year, with a three-day advance purchase. Air France is offering round-trip airfare to Paris for $289 from JFK or Newark airports through March 24. Travelers must depart on a Thursday or Friday and return the following Monday or Tuesday; some restrictions do apply.

   So whether its snorkeling, snuggling, sightseeing or all three, couples can return to romance at any of these destinations at their leisure.
