We’re going to spend a week at the Sandals Royal Bahamian.  We decided to splurge and get one of the villa/butler suites.  Neither one of us has ever been to the Bahamas, so we’re both pretty excited.  I like the idea that it has the private island that you can go to.  When we booked, they were including a $250 spa credit, so that’s nice.  I’ve been doing a TON of review reading on TripAdvisor and it gets great reviews.

Several years ago I spent 10 days in St. Thomas and it was AMAZING.  Part of me is still sad we’re not going there for our honeymoon, but I am forcing myself to try something new.  The Ritz Carlton is running a really good deal right now where you can get a room for $350 a night along with getting a $100 resort credit per day.  So, it’s not really all-inclusive, but it’s $100 you can use towards food each day…or use at the spa or whatever you choose.  I ate lunch at their seaside cafe everyday and probably spent $15…dinner was obviously  more expensive.  You do pay a $50/day resort fee, it includes all the water equipment: snorkels, kayaks, scuba gear, windsurfing, etc.  I can personally vouch for the Ritz’s beach and say it is 110% beautiful.  I stayed in some condos next door, but we would go and use the Ritz’s beach everyday because it was so nice.  I love St. Thomas because you can be as active or laid back as you want.  It’s only a 10 minute ferry ride from St. John which is a MUST.  I also took a day trip over to the British Virgin Islands (stopped at Tortola, Virgin Gorda, and Cooper Island).  St. Thomas has a very lively nightlife…

If you want more of a laid back atmosphere, St. John would also be wonderful.  DH and I were SOOOO close to honeymooning here.  I was actually finding some fantastic deals on vrbo. 

Obviously, I have a TON to say about the Virgin Islands, but I am so so so excited about the Bahamas.  If you have any questions about the V.I., PM me.  I saved a lot of the thinks of cool places I was finding on vrbo.
