Bahamas honeymoons are dreams come true for those with a passion for sun, surf, sand and a laid-back Caribbean culture that welcomes visitors from all over the world. It’s that last part, however, that can cramp a romantic honeymoon’s style and take the intimacy right out of the adventure.
Don’t despair though; if the turquoise waters of the Bahamas are calling and you want to make sure privacy is still in the cards, there are destinations you can add to your itinerary. Just consider the Bahamas out-islands for your honeymoon trip.
The out islands are the perfect place for romantic getaways and they number more than a few. Here are just a few of the options to consider as you plan out your honeymoon getaway:
Bimini – This island is famed for its pristine beaches and its exceptional fishing. It was, in fact, one of Ernest Hemingway’s favorite places to escape the rat race. Bimini is just 50 miles off the coast of Florida and its sights are legendary. They include the Bimini Road, the ruins that some believe might just have led to the “Lost City of Atlantis” and others. The resorts here are world-class, too, which means you can count on incredible service.
Exumas – Known for its highly romantic private beaches and incredible scuba diving spots, this island is off the beaten path, which is just perfect for honeymooners. Here you’ll find the renowned Sandals Emerald Bay resort that boasts its own private beach and more amenities than you can easily count. Check out Georgetown, visit the Government Wharf or just go snorkelling to see under those turquoise waters. Three Sisters Reef is also a favorite spot for those who like to dive.
Acklins – Imagine walking on a beach at sunset with a lighthouse in the distance and no other people in sight. Honeymoon in this Bahamas Out Island and that picture can become reality. This island is noted for its bonefishing, low population and outstanding resorts. It’s also ideal for those who love snorkelling.
The Bahamas Out Islands are the perfect honeymoon destination for those that want high romance coupled with incredible activities. Other possibilities to explore include the Berry Islands, Cat Island, Long Island and Harbour Island.
Ready to look into the Bahamas Out Islands for your honeymoon getaway? Just consult with our honeymoon travel consultants for the scoop on the great places to go and where to stay.
Thinking about DIYing your honeymoon? Here’s 6 things an online site won’t tell you.
You’ll get a better deal if you wait till next week:
Have you ever clicked the confirm button on an online site only to have it tell you that you’d get a better deal if you waited a couple days to book? Of course not! Since one of the reasons people use an online site is instant gratification, an online booking site is never going to let you know that the hotel you’ve just selected is running a promo that starts next week, and that you would really be better off to wait a couple more days before you book. And here’s the rub-if you book online and a better rate comes out after you’ve booked, the online site won’t adjust your price. Here at Bliss Honeymoons, if a better rate becomes available after you’ve booked, we can obtain the new rate for you.
At that resort, “ocean view” really means “tree view”
There’s nothing better than waking up in a tropical destination and sitting on your balcony staring at the ocean while having your coffee. But not all ocean view rooms are created equal. In fact, at some resorts, ocean views are obstructed by trees or other buildings. If you’re going to pay extra for an ocean view, don’t you want to be able to see the ocean? At Bliss Honeymoons, we visit the resorts that we sell, so we can give you the inside scoop on what the rooms are really like.
This resort is great if you want to spend the week with rednecks!
While doing a hotel tour of Jamaica last fall, one of our agents spent a couple of nights at what claimed to be an upscale resort. While this resort looks fantastic online, what you don’t see on the online site are the 50 screaming kids doing cannon balls, and the lovely couple in cut-offs who were smoking in the pool! It’s also impossible to taste or feel a hotel from a website, and there was no mention of the rock hard beds or endless supply of box wine swill on their site.
Remember, anyone can build a pretty website. It’s impossible to judge the vibe of the resort, or the crowd it attracts from their site. And there’s nothing worse than spending a week trapped at a resort with people who make you uncomfortable.
Your hotel is closed for the season. Enjoy the Super 8!
In the last year there have been two big cases of couples who booked, only to learn that the hotel was closed for the season when they arrived. (One was a Greek Island honeymoon, the other a 25th wedding anniversary in Costa Rica) In both of these cases, the online site refused to assist them until they could confirm that the hotel was actually closed. But how can you confirm a hotel is closed when there’s no one there to confirm it? Exactly!
In both of these instances, the travelers were left to fend for themselves. Each had to find and pay for a new hotel, and then spend months fighting with the online site to get their money back when they returned home.
You could have gotten that candlelight dinner on the beach free by booking the next room category!
There’s nothing worse than learning the beach wedding you just paid $1500.00 for could have been free if you had just spent an extra $800.00 on the next highest room category, and stayed 7 nights instead of 6 nights.
Online sites do a great job of giving you a list of things that are available at various resorts, and making you think you’ve gotten a deal. But an experienced travel professional knows the inter-workings of the resorts promos, and can help you get more value from your trip than you can find from an online site.
Your connecting flight leaves 15 minutes before you arrive. Welcome to Duluth!
The cheapest flight is not always a flight that can actually work. Online sites are notorious for selling flights with misconnects, or failing to notify clients that their flight schedules have changed. Last year we had a destination wedding guest who insisted on booking their own flights. Imagine their surprise when they arrived at the airport with their two toddlers in tow, only to learn that Mexicana had gone bankrupt several weeks ago and was no longer flying. The walk-up fare to get to the wedding on an alternate airline was almost $2000 per person. They wound up driving home, missing the wedding, and losing everything they paid for the trip as they declined the insurance. And of course the online site they purchased the air through never notified them that Mexicana had gone under, and denied them any kind of compensation.
