HONEYMOON INSPIRATION: Great Honeymoon Getaway Deals

Here are a few deals we’ve got our eye on now

The Ritz-Carlton’s Abaco Club on Winding Bay in the Bahamas is currently offering would-be honeymooners the chance to book as a “guest member” during their Reconnect package, which is good through December 19. Till then, the rates start $699 per night (you can choose among the two-, three- or four-bedroom cottages, and cabana, just a stroll away for white-sand beaches); the offer also gets each of you a $100 credit to use towards the Club’s fab amenities, including beachside meals. Plus you get unlimited golf for two during your stay at the Club’s award-winning Scottish-style golf course.

• Because we know a lot of you out there plan to island-hop your way through your honeymoon, we just had to pass along this one: Hermitage Bay in Antigua is currently offering an amazing deal for a three-night stay. Starting at $2,850 per couple, you’ll get three nights in a private beachside cottage suite; a VIP meet-and-greet at the airport to whisk you through customs; transfer to and from the airport; a 30-minute massage in the open-air pavilion for each of you; unlimited water sports (think kayaking, snorkeling, windsurfing, and sailing, for starters); all meals, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and hors d’oeuvres at cocktail time; and all beverages including house wine and premium liquor.

• If you and the hub are looking to go all out for your ‘moon, then take a look at this: The Lighthouse Bay Resort on Barbuda — a secluded nine-mile, natural strip of land on an island near Antigua — is offering a Honeymoon in Paradise package through the spring. Book, and you’ll get seven nights (there are a variety of suites to choose from); breakfast, lunch, and dinner (Note: If you so happen to catch your own fresh fish during your stay, the resort’s chef will happily prepare it to your liking); one candlelit dinner on the pink-sand beach; couples massage; one evening horseback ride for two; and you’ll return one night to your candlelit room to find Bougainvillea petals scattered about your bed, and floating in a warm bath. If that isn’t enough, a complimentary round-trip helicopter transfers from Antigua are included. Rates start at $9,793 for honeymoons from December 19 through January 10; and $8,393 between January 11 and March 28.
