Last month, Bryan and I had the INCREDIBLE opportunity to do a little honeymoon scouting for you all. (We seriously have a really rough job!). Katie of Ever After Honeymoons is an absurdly incredibly honeymoon planner that knows her stuff, so she brought us, with Jillian from 100 Layer Cake, Jen from Green Wedding Shoes, Leila from Inspired By This and photographer Jen Huang (along with all of our fellas) on a trip to Anguilla and St. Barthe’s in the Caribbean. The one-two combo of these two islands were a perfect match up for a 10 day honeymoon. As the astute journalist that I am, it’s now time to share with you some pictures from the experience and you can check out the other lovely blogs for even more images and recaps!
This week, we’ll tell you all about Anguilla and then next Friday, tune back in for a recap of St. Barthe’s. All of the images we’re going to share with you are by Jen Huang. (Can you tell they’re almost all shot on film? I thought you could!). Last thing–be sure to read all the way to the end of today’s post–there’s a special offer just for our readers!
For starters, I can’t tell you how much we loved our hosts–The Viceroy Anguilla. If you are the type of couple that wants all sorts of fun things to do, yet still loves the idea of being able to stay at the resort all week long, then the Viceroy is a perfect fit. While there are tons of great excursions to partake in all over the island, we particularly loved how many activities, restaurants, beaches, and pools there were to enjoy all in one spot.
Can we just discuss how rad the hotel’s design is?
Pools AND beaches. I’m not kidding. And the water is perfectly warm. We’re still missing all that perfection!
An infinity pool right next to the world’s raddest outdoor bar. I die.
A snapshot of our rooms and the view.
Yes, that is indeed an outdoor shower!
Super cute Maptote gift bags from Katie!
This is where we enjoyed a crazy good brunch buffet every day!
The Viceroy staff hosted a gorgeous dinner for us to showcase how amazing their destination weddings can be. We were greeting with giant coconuts filled with the world’s most delicious cocktail, which was way too easy to drink!
Our view from dinner:
After dinner, we had the chance to partake in a bonfire with s’mores, Pyrat rum, and coffee. It was fun to talk into the night with all of our colleagues!
One of the days during our visit, we ventured off the island and took a quick boat ride to the tiniest island ever. There’s just enough room for a lobster shack, hammocks, and a volleyball net.
Greatest barbecued lobster lunch, ever!
There are TONS of activities to enjoy at the resort–yoga, sailing, paddle boarding, wine tastings, spa treatments, tennis, and the list goes on. Here’s a snapshot of the guys on the rock climbing wall. They were barefoot–obviously they didn’t last up there for very long.
Bryan and I had the chance to enjoy our first ever couple’s massage, thanks to the Viceroy. Check out their spa facilities:
In fact, that brings us to the AMAZING offer that The Viceroy Anguilla has for you. If you book through Ever After Honeymoons (be sure to tell Katie you are a Grey Likes reader!) you’ll get a free couple’s massage with your stay! Are you for reals? Completely amazing! All you need to do is email her to get started!
All that to say, if you are looking for a beach destination for your honeymoon (or anniversary, or baby moon, or birthday or…???) then the Viceroy should for sure be on your list! We hope you enjoyed our review! Where will we be off to next?
Happy honeymoon hunting, Darlings!
