If you're idea of the perfect honeymoon includes a boutique hotel set upon miles of pristine white sandy beaches, with a smattering of luxe touches, then look no further than Rendezvous in St Lucia.


This Carribean beachside oasis is a 'couples only resort' so it's not the hippest of hotels - however if it's grown-up peace and tranquillity you're after, this is just the place.

The grounds are the spectacle here - a myriad of local flora, fauna and leafy gardens that wind between the hidden pools, hotel accommodation and the main dining areas.  Meander through the grounds and you will (hopefully) chance upon the spa set in the water garden. Try the full body massage: combining traditional Swedish massage techniques and St. Lucian locally grown organic oils, herbs and flowers - this massage will ensure all stresses and strains are quite literally pummelled, pumiced and pounded out of your body. Ultimate honeymoon must-have experience? Opt for a couple's massage for serious indulgence.


The beach is Carribean cool and postcard perfection - long, rugged and palm-lined with the clearest sea. In fact, the beach is the focal point for the resort: whether you are looking to SCUBA dive, snorkel, test out the watersports on offer or simply soak up the rays, there is something for everyone and it's worth getting stuck in.

Food is a joy - the weekly beach BBQ is a must; eat the huge grilled prawns on the terrace overlooking the twinkling bay. The whole place lights up at night; think flares, candles and eating to the infectious beat of the local steel band.

Tempted? Add to your honeymoon hit list now!
