St. Lucia, Here We Come!

August 16, 2010

Our honeymoon is BOOKED!

It might seem like we are WAY early for this, and we kind of are, but we used frequent flyer miles to book our plane flight and apparently they only have a few seats per flight, and since there’s only one non-stop flight per day from Atlanta to St. Lucia … we figured we’d better get on it! Plus, we got a great deal on our package at Sandals, and our travel agent is going to watch for sales so she can get us a price adjustment if anything changes. Wooohooooo!

We’re staying at the Sandals Grande St. Lucian for eight days after our wedding. Sooooo excited! The resort’s on its own peninsula, so it has water on either side:

We considered being the super-cool kind of couple that stays on the non-resort side of St. Lucia and hangs with the locals and stuff, but we plan to be pretty lazy during our honeymoon, so the all-inclusive route is what we ended up with. All food and liquor is included—with 24-hour room service—plus lots of water sports! And our personal “concierge” can help us sign up for rainforest and volcano tours and sunset cruises and crazy stuff. Did I mention I’m SO excited?! This is our room!


It’s not huge or anything, but it’s got an awesome view and a king-sized bed. That’s all you need on a tropical island, right?

Could we maybe just go now, I wonder?

    i was googling about honeymoons in TAHITI today, but i doooon’t wanna fly for 1,000 hours to get there….

    ps- are you aware that the motto of sandals is: SANDALS……the resort created for two people in love…. hehehe 🙂

      What happens on The Bachelor?! I’ve never watched that show!
      I feel your pain about the travel time … we wanted to go to Hawaii because it’s the only place that has good weather year round, but it’s SO FAR! I’ve heard Tahiti is AMAZING, though — it’d probably be worth it!
      SANDALS … the resort created for two people who love eating and drinking and sitting around as much as possible, and might occasionally also want some romance.

    on the bachelor they usually take a BOMB ASS vaca at the end to pick a winner. a couple seasons ago, they stayed in st. lucia and it was GORGEOUSSSSSS and they stayed in a resort, but they also went over and “mingled with the locals”, so you can totally do both!!! THEY ALSO TOOK MUD BATHS. it looked awesome. I basically want to go everywhere anyone on the bachelor goes, including but not limited to: st. lucia, tahiti, iceland, portugal, etc etc…..
