The danger of staying at Eden Rock for your honeymoon is when it's time to go home, you may question your vows and be tempted to stay behind. You wouldn't be the first visitor to become entranced by the sight of the turquoise sea each morning and the rhythm of days spent doing little more than watching the tide roll in.
Eden Rock is that kind of place; where plans are scrapped to merely be, and life's big question becomes whether to lunch on the St Barths lobster salad with avocado, tomato and champagne dressing, or the black truffle and Fontina pizza in the breezy Sand Bar.
Whichever you choose, also make the effort to climb the steps to the chic On The Rocks and sample the creative menu of master chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and new executive chef Eric Desborde.
The hotel's 34 rooms and suites are clustered around the rock; some, like the romantic De Haenen Suite, are perched over the sea. Villa Rockstar, which has four bedrooms and its own pool, Jacuzzi and gym, is the solution for a splash-the-cash celebration; alternatively, there's the two-bedroomed Villa Nina, also with its own pool. Both come with cars and private access to the beach. Choices, choices…
WOW FACTOR: The colours: the signature red of Eden Rock contrasts beautifully with the lush green mountains and the vivid blue sea. It's a wake-up call.
