While the masses wax romantic with candy and roses, we believe this infamous sweetheart's day is best spent with the sand between your toes and a rum punch in your hand. Where better than the Caribbean to spend complete seclusion with the one you love? Here are five ideal escapes to consider.
Jade Mountain, St. Lucia
Situated above a 600-acre tropical resort estate of Anse Chastanet, Jade Mountain is the quintessential lovers retreat. The space itself is architecturally stunning, rivaling the awe-inspiring backdrop of the Pitons and azure Caribbean Sea. Infinity pool sanctuaries, Sky Jacuzzi suites and private spa treatments make it nearly impossible to leave your room. But then, thats the whole point, right?
Gustavia Hill, St. Barts
Gustavia Hill is perfect for honeymooners who seek privacy, but enjoy island activity. Its close to restaurants and shopping, yet tucked far enough away to serve as an ideal couples hideout. This villa also boasts a private pool, exterior shower, and daily maid service.
Ballyhoo Cottage, Turks and Caicos
Few things can be more romantic than your own quaint beach cottage. Located on pristine and remote Grace Bay Beach, Ballyhoo Cottage is great for that low-key couples-only vacation youve always imagined. Fill the days with cocktails in your personal beach hammock or kick back in your private swimming pool. Feel like dining out? Ballyhoo is within walking distance of six different restaurants.
Fletchs Cove, Anguilla
The casual lure of Anguilla is perfectly reflected in this rustic and comfortable villa. Its Mexican inspired dÃƒÂ©cor blends beautifully with the island surroundings. Guests enjoy complete seclusion here, too. So much so, you can sunbathe in the nude on the villas pool deck. Just steps away, calm waves lap the secluded beach, and the barrier reef one mile off shore offers great snorkeling opportunities.
Mooncottage Villa, St. John
If you want to completely get away from it all, get in your 4-Wheeler and trek up to Mooncottage. This lush mountain escape offers expansive vistas of Coral Bay below, as well as Tortola, Virgin Gorda and Norman Island. This forest hideaway includes your own gourmet kitchen and a private pool. Lounge on the patio or hike among the banana and papaya trees that encompass this enchanting villa.
