St. Lucia – Experience Romance at the Jewel of the Island: Jade Mountain

By Christy Danforth (Tzell Travel Group, New York, NY)

If you are looking for a romantic destination, look no further than St. Lucia. Characterized by lush rainforests, beautiful waterfalls, and stunning Piton Mountains, this destination offers you everything you could wish for to create an unforgettable trip for just the two of you –or even your honeymoon.

The best place to stay is Nick Troubetzkoy’s Jade Mountain resort. Carved into the top of a mountain near the lush rain forest, the hotel offers spectacular views of the Piton Mountains while also giving guest a unique, peaceful experience. Jade Mountain strives to create an organic spot that exist in harmony with nature. The use of materials and colors all work to help a person to restore balance and peace to a guest’s life. The resort creates a romantic atmosphere with its unique room design – open aired, no television or telephone, a Domo (or butler) and private infinity pools.

Jade Mountain creates a sense of peace and privacy with the use of celestial terms throughout the resort. Rooms are called “sanctuaries” and can only be accessed by “Bridges to Infinity.” The bridges were given this name since each sanctuary has an infinite pool (with infinite, amazing views). Marking the entrance to many of the bridges are the “Columns to Heaven,” wire sculptures topped with hand, made colored glass tiles. The sanctuaries are truly romantic, private refuges from the world. Whether its daytime lounging at your private sun area and swimming in your private pool or nighttime gazing at the bright stars from your candle lit sanctuary, Jade Mountain offers the ultimate luxurious, romantic, pampered getaway.

California – Unexpectedly Romantic

By Shay Harington (Tzell Travel Group, New York, NY)

Sometimes we’re so busy looking far and wide that we don’t realize everything our heart desires if right in our backyard!  We honeymooned in California, traveling down the coast from Napa to Newport Beach.  It was easily one of the most romantic and lavish vacations we’ve experienced.

Starting in San Francisco, we enjoyed the iconic city sites and food.  We rented a car and drove up to Napa Valley for a few nights.  During our visit to Napa, we enjoyed picnic lunches, nestled by our fireplace and we delighted in a chauffeured antique convertible car for a day of wine tasting.  We drove south on the dazzling Pacific Coast Highway making stops along the way at picturesque lookouts.  We enjoyed a night at an ultra-romantic inn before continuing on to Paso Robles for more wine tasting and a visit to the opulent Hearst Castle.

We ended our 10-day trip in the Newport/Huntington Beach area for whale watching, beach walks and a visit to Disneyland.

Caribbean Cruise – Pure Romance at Sea

A Caribbean cruise is practically made for couples who are looking for a romantic vacation on which they get to explore multiple destinations, have a variety of different activities to choose from, and get to spend as much time as possible together. For most part of the year, you and your partner can enjoy a romantic cruise or even plan your honeymoon onboard a beautiful ship sailing the Caribbean Sea.

On board some of our favorite cruise lines, such as Royal Caribbean International, you can rejuvenate your sense with a couple’s massage, relax by the pool, and enjoy a dinner for two in your very own suite or stateroom.

Shore excursions – and onboard activities – are perfect for active couples and honeymooners who want to bond by discovering new places and partaking in new experiences together. The Caribbean islands are diverse and so offer something for every taste and lifestyle. If you just want to enjoy each other’s company, you can dine in a charming restaurant or relax by the beach. But if both of you are seeking a little adventure, horseback-riding or ziplining might be great options for you.

Many cruise lines also offer wonderful romance packages that will make your trip with your special someone unforgettable. Ask your Tzell travel agent about it.
