Romance in Barbados
Posted: 05 June 2017
Barbados is a true Caribbean gem, an island made for love and romance, whether you’re on honeymoon, tying the knot or simply planning a luxury holiday for two.
Expect idyllic scenery, flamboyant flora and amazing skies, a magical mix of colours ranging from lush dark green in the island’s wild interior, to burnished ochre sunsets that dazzle the senses. Snuggle up with a glass of rum punch and watch the sun melt into the ocean – one minute it’s there, the next it’s gone, meaning it’s time to put on your glad rags and head to one of the many top-notch restaurants for a romantic dinner. Picture a table next to the water’s edge, the waves gently lapping the shore, the stars twinkling high above, enjoying exquisite food and flawless service.
Wake up to the promise of blissful, lazy days on an immaculately groomed beach or next to a sparkling swimming pool. Activities may mean nothing more than lifting a cocktail, turning over every now and then for that perfect golden tan, or you may fancy doing something a little more fun, a new experience or adventure to share together – booking a catamaran trip and swimming with turtles, perhaps. Touring the island is another delight – Barbados offers so much more than just sandy beaches. Highlights include dusty rum shacks, colourful chattel houses, duty-free designer shopping, all kinds of historic treasures, horse-racing, golf and lots, lots more.
If you’re considering a wedding abroad, Barbados is a brilliant choice, with direct flights from the UK and an exceptional choice of luxurious hotels offering special wedding and honeymoon packages. Alternatively, our portfolio of luxury villas offers you the option to compile your favourite guest list and enjoy total privacy during the event. Allow us to take care of arrangements for you here in Chester and on the island by our dedicated Bajan staff. Getting married on Barbados is very straightforward and we’re in touch with the very best florists, photographers, make-up artists and so on. The hardest bit is deciding where to say, “I do”. Will it be barefoot on a white-sand beach on the glamorous west coast or on the east coast, where monster Atlantic rollers pound on castaway bays and create a spectacular backdrop? You may like the idea of being surrounded by tropical flowers in a botanical garden, or what about a traditional ceremony in a beautiful old church, its stained-glass windows gleaming with sunlight? Be it a small, intimate occasion or a lavish event you wish for, your wish is our command!
