Honeymoon Hot Spot: The British Virgin Islands

The British Virgin Islands are among the Caribbean’s most luxe and lush. Add in world-class sailing, diving, and snorkeling, stunning seaside spas, and some of the Caribbean’s best cooking, and you’ve got yourself a honeymoon hot spot. Here are a few of our favorite BVI escapes.

Surrounded by thick, bright-green palms and tropical plants, Rosewood Little Dix Bay‘s laid-back yet luxurious rooms, suites, and cottages are happily devoid of telephones and TVs, leaving the gentle breeze and Caribbean Sea to serve as a honeymoon soundtrack. If you need further convincing, a visit to the resort’s spa—it sits atop a cliff and overlooks the sparkling sea from an infinity-edge pool—ought to do the trick. We love the resort’s romantic Beach Cottages, which open up to stunning sea views and are just steps from the crescent beach. Falling asleep at night to the soft sound of waves and rustling palms? We’re totally in love.

A honeymoon at Peter Island Resort & Spa means having a private playground all to yourself—you won’t find anything on Peter Island other than the eponymous resort. The resort’s gorgeous grounds are wind-swept and dotted with palms, but things get really luxurious at its hilltop villas, which come with their own private staff, plus infinity-edge pools with jaw-dropping views. Whichever way you go, make sure to visit the 10,000-square-foot spa for a blissful facial or body treatment, and soak up some sun (and homemade tropical drinks) on Honeymoon Beach (pictured above).

Boating buffs will fall for Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina, a boutique hotel and the Caribbean’s newest private island resort. Views here do double duty, giving guests a chance to look out at the ocean and the resort’s marina. Couples who prefer to stay on site can recharge at Ixora Spa, unwind on North Beach in a private cabana, and have dinner à deux in their own suite or on the beach at sunset. If you’re up for exploring, daily excursions take guests to neighboring islands, snorkeling at The Baths and Norman Island, scuba diving trips to the Wreck of the Rhone, or to nearby island’s to sample local food and drink. Feeling adventurous but want to stick close by? Try sea kayaking, paddleboarding, hiking, and snorkeling in one of Scrub Island’s “secret” spots.
