Heat Wave

Whether you are planning your honeymoon or just love reading about fabulous destinations, we thought we would give our two cents on some romantic tropical getaways!  Here are some of our favorites:

Lizard Island, Great Barrier Reef (Australia): Continually voted one of the top resorts in Australia (and the world), this secluded Barrier Reef retreat has something for everyone.  The beautiful white sand beaches are perfect for picnics and relaxing in the sun, yet with snorkeling, diving, tennis, nature walks, and paddle ski tours all available as well, there is no shortage of activities!  Our favorite amenities are the opportunity to have a privately catered intimate dinner for two on the beach, and the unlimited Australian fine wines and French champagne that are included in the rate – we’ll drink to that!

The Moorings Village, Florida Keys: Boasting one of the largest private beaches in the Keys, the Moorings Village in Islamorada offers the feeling of being on a remote island with the convenience of being just off the Florida coast.  Consisting of a collection of private cottages and homes, each residence is unique and completely self-sufficient to ensure complete privacy.  Available activities include diving, snorkeling, wind-surfing, fishing, kayaking, and tennis, although you could easily spend the whole time relaxing on the beautiful beach or in a hammock with your honey!

Four Seasons Resort, Bali at Jimbaran Bay: This is the perfect combination of Four Seasons-style luxury and relaxed, tropical living.  Private villas are nestled into the cliff-side, each with beautiful views of the bay and extensive outdoor and indoor living spaces.  The lush gardens, private infinity pool, open-air living areas, and outdoor shower will make your villa feel like an authentic tropical getaway, yet modern amenities such as a Bose sound system and air conditioned bedrooms ensure that you still get that sense of luxury that everyone deserves on their honeymoon.

Vedema Resort, Santorini (Greece): The photos alone of this breathtaking resort are enough to make us fall in love! (see right) Built around a 400 year old vineyard, this picturesque resort includes 45 white-washed luxury villas, each with a private pool and stunning views of the sea or vineyard.  In case you ever decide to leave your villa, you can relax at the spa, enjoy a scenic boat ride, or tour the winery and partake in a personalized tasting.
