The Best in Romantic Antigua Hotels
By Peter Knowler
Antigua is one of the most romantic places in the world. Filled with history and surrounded by natural beauty, from the 365 beautiful beaches to the green forests of the interior, Antigua is the ideal destination for a wedding or honeymoon, and is bound to provide an incredibly romantic trip that neither of you will forget. But to make the most of this trip, it is important to find the right hotel. No couple looking for a romantic trip wants to be surrounded by families and children, so it is important to get a secluded and quiet hotel that knows what couples want.
Antigua hotels can provide all of this and more - here are some of the most romantic hotels on the island:
* The Sandals Grande Antigua is not just the most romantic of the Antigua hotels, it has been named the most romantic resort in the world, and it is not hard to see why. This hotel has magnificent and secluded grounds, with European style evident in the design of the buildings. Combined with the resort's private beaches, gorgeous and spacious suites and extensive spa, this hotel provides a deeply romantic and relaxing getaway from the troubles of the world - though this romance comes at a price!
* For a less pricey, but thoroughly romantic trip, try the Cocobay resort on the island's south west coast. This is an all in resort, meaning that once you pay, you need not worry about money again while at the resort - all your food and drink is also included. The hotel is set amongst some beautiful scenery - on a clear day, guests at the hotel enjoy spectacular views of the dormant volcano of Montserrat. The resort advertises itself to honeymooners and weddings, so you can be sure you will have the privacy you're looking for.
* A smaller, more intimate hotel can be found in the Galley Bay Resort. This hotel has only 70 guest rooms, providing the exclusivity you just cannot find at one of the bigger resorts. Also set in stunning surroundings, this Antigua hotel is almost designed for long romantic walks in the evening and could provide a beautiful location for a wedding, which the Galley Bay specialises in.
* The Blue Waters Resort is another luxurious and private Antigua hotel designed for couples and romance. Set in 17 acres of lush garden and beautiful grounds, the hotel's wedding gazebo jutting out into Caribbean could well be one of the most romantic places on earth and the private beach is ideal for watching the sun set.
